scripting printer setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using vbscript (preferred) I need to script the creation of printers.  My issue is I cannot find a WMI, DLL, etc. to allow changes to the "Device Settings" of the printer.  Device Settings means:  Control Panel -> Printers -> Properties (of a printer) Device Settings Tab.  Settings like:  Duplex Installed, Total memory installed, Tray 3 paper type etc.)  This is different than "Printer Propertes" or "Advanced properties" where you define to "use" a duplexer.

    You cannot use a duplexer until the printer knows it has one installed.  I need to set the paramters so the driver knows one is installed.

    I would do this manually via the method listed above.  How do I access these parameters programatically.

    So, my question is:  What forum to use to post such a question?
