Yep, second that.  It works well with reading, writing, and deleting files and 
registry keys so this shouldn't be too bad.  Be sure to utilize the -whatif 
switch and various test methods...

That should all be pretty scriptable. Sorry, I don't have one available. This 
would be a great excuse for you to learn Powershell, I guess :)

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:
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.
