Rob VanDerWoude tells you how to do this via a script using rundll32.

Subject: [THIN] Print driver clean up on XenApp




I have been building and testing the HP UPD to minimise out print driver
footprint and save any issues when new printers are implemented.


It's all been running for a while now but what I really want to do now
is clean up all the unwanted drivers from my XenApp servers and then
push out the UPD + the 3 or 4 other drivers that had to remain for old
HP printers that were not supported but the UPD.


I have a manual process which involves manually deleting all the drivers
from the Print Server properties windows.


If some drivers do not remove I can go through the following :


*           Stop the spooler service

*           Open the registry

*           Check which files are associated with the following printer
keys from:

indows NT x86\Drivers\Version-3

*           Make a note of the files associated with the printer 

*       Delete the key.
*       Go to c:\WINNT\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\   
*       Delete the files that you have written down.
*       Restart the spooler service


Is there a script or any easier way to do this, I also need to be able
to leave the Citrix UPD and PDF printer stuff behind as well.
