Intel and windows specify to use the windows 2000 intel version for the
driver.

Since I am not installing a Printer. I am only installing the DRIVER. I
don't need to worry about a printer name or anything.

What does the /h "Intel" and /v "Windows 2000" specify?

Where are you specifying the name of the printer when it gets installed
on
the local computer or is that one of the above?

Ok. Got it.=3D20

This will add a driver to a server with no user interaction. If you use
the second line it will do it to a remote computer. I am going to
massage it a little and set it up to pull the names of the drivers from
a txt file and I should be set.

Thanks for the tip Evan.

This is something like what I need. All I need is the driver. Let me see
if I can do anything with that.

I was playing around with rundll32 and printui.dll to try and automate
installation of printers but never got it to work.  Here is what I
played
with:

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /if /b "AdminHP on ADMINDC" /f
%windir%\inf\ntprint.inf /r "HP_0CCC41_IP" /m "HP LaserJet 4050 Series
PS"

"AdminHP on ADMINDC" is the name of the shared printer on my server and
"HP
LaserJet 4050 Series PS" is the driver it users.  I forgot where I found
all
the switches and what not.  I picked it all up off Google.

Anyone ever played with this and get it to work?

I found this in the script repository from MS but it only works with
.NET or XP machines

Set objWMIService =3D3D3D3D GetObject("winmgmts:")
Set objDriver =3D3D3D3D objWMIService.Get("Win32_PrinterDriver")
objDriver.Name =3D3D3D3D "Apple LaserWriter 8500"
objDriver.SupportedPlatform =3D3D3D3D "Windows NT x86"
objDriver.Version =3D3D3D3D "3"
errResult =3D3D3D3D objDriver.AddPrinterDriver(objDriver)

Anyone using a VBS (or any other type of script) for adding a large
number of print drivers to their servers during a scripted install?  If
so can I take a peek at it?
