    Im looking for a bat command to install multiple printers to laptops. It would need to run and add about 3 printers over tcp/ip. Just need a jump start on how to start off this bat command to it all in. the ptiners are all the same model and will have close ip range.

    I don’t think you can do it using a .bat or a .cmd you will have to script it in VB or powerscript..

    This might be overwhelming but I learned VBS by reading the Windows 2000 Scripting Guide which is now available for free in Technet:https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee692931.aspx

    This one that I stole from a colleague and Rems helped to modify it for my situation some time ago. Obviously more printers than you want but I couldn’t be stuffed editing it, sorry.

    It initially removes any printers already installed and then adds the one(s) you want and then sets one as the Default. Runs with a .vbs extension.

    Why are you installing via “sneaker net” instead of using the network?
    Maybe you could tell us a little about your Network setup?[CODE]’Printer 1
