Was this what you wanted?

Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")

'Adding new printer queues
'wscript.echo "Adding new printer queues."
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\computername\CanoniR5055N"

The remove printer queue is

WshNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection "\\computername\CanoniR5055N"

Pls note that there are no fancy error checks whatsoever, it's just a crude
quick'n'dirty script I got from somebody on this list.
