 I created a script to remove and install a network printer. It runs on local PC but not in script. I see it places the VBS in \kbots_cache\packages\kbots folder but will not run.

We are running both windows 10 X64 & x86

Network printers are a per user type of thing.  Scripts run as system by default, try running the script as current user.

Hi Kdebiasse,

Here is the script that has worked for me for network printers.


rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ga /n\\<printserver>\<printqueuename> /q

net stop spooler

net start spooler


set <printserver> to your print server name and <printqueuename> to your print queue name.

Good luck!

  • I've been using this command for over 10 years, seconded.
    • I don't have a print server. however, I am still trying to install a network printer to multiple computers via kace. how do I do it? I searched the web and mostly they are mentioned server.
