Adding printers with VBScript


Pretty easy stuff… if you should ever need to add a login script to map a printer, or batch out a very large printer install… even convert to an EXE and push out a printer change to hundreds of systems with System Management Server.. this is a great way to do so!

‘Start Script

Dim net
Set net = CreateObject(“WScript.Network”)
net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection “
\\Server\PrintShare0

net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection “\\Server\PrintShare1
net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection “
\\Server\PrintShare2
net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection “
\\Server\PrintShare3
net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection “
\\Server\PrintShare4
net.AddWindowsPrinterConnection “
\\Server\PrintShare5
net.SetDefaultPrinter “
\\Server\PrintShare3

‘End Script

As always, you must use the visual basic script extention.

Copy the above, paste into a notepad, and save the file as whateveryouwant.vbs
