Adding printer without user actions (script) ?

Q: Adding printer without user actions (script) ?

Hi, I am trying to develop a script that a user can run in order to set up our lab printers on a the user's laptop. The printer queues are set up on a server within our AD network. Since the user name on our AD network may not match the user name on their personal laptop, a way needs to exist for them to enter their username/password some time during the script execution to set up the queue with known credentials.
From what I read so far, I found two ways to do this, but couldnt get either to work. First way was to do a
net use LPT4: \\server\queue_name /USER: Domain\username

but for some reason, even though "net use" shows that a printer was mapped to LPT4, when I go to something like microsoft word, and select Print.. there doesnt appear any printers installed. No idea how to proceed there.

Another way I read about was to use the "rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry" with a bunch of parameters, but I didn't see any parameter that would allow me to specify a username (or request a username) during the execution of the command. Seems to me that it uses the currently logged in username, which is not really an option for us.

I also read that there is a more advanced dll from the server resource kits, prnadmin.dll but I have no idea how to use it yet.

Am I missing something very simple in either of the two ways? or is there no way to easily do what I need with batch file, and I need to consider doing something more advanced? Also, if you aren't sure how to do any of this, but know of some other place where I could get help with this, please let me know.

Preferred Solution: Adding printer without user actions (script) ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I Windows 7 I had additional actions in the Explorer Right Click Menu, such as Edit with Photoshop for image files. I'm fairly sure I added these manually, but I can't remember how. I'm also curious why they have gone.

There was a dialog box to enter them as I recall, with a command string ending in %1.

Is there a way to add these in W10, preferably an easier way?

A:Adding Actions to Right Click Menu

ContextEdit is one way. This is a 2001 PcMag published program that still works well in Windows 10.

ContextEdit lets you control which items appear on your context menu--the menu that appears when you right-click on an item in Windows Explorer. The context menu often contains numerous rarely-used commands. These commands come from one of two places: shell commands stored within the system Registry, and context menu handlers. The source of the menu item is transparent to the end-user, but still has an impact. Windows Explorer lets you add or remove simple shell commands, but gives you no control over context menu handlers. ContextEdit lets you control both types of context menu items. It also allows you to disable context menu items without removing them entirely. Another unique feature is the ability to add shell commands to all files regardless of type, or to all files without an associated program.

Hi All,

I have been trying to find some information regarding roaming profiles from an end user perspective but most everything I have been able to find so far has been geared towards either the creator of the roaming profiles or the administrator of the roaming
profiles.  The angle I am looking for information on is, from the end user point of view.

The agency I work for has assigned roaming profiles to some of the staff member due to the need for these people to be able to work from any available workstation during their shift.  For the most part, these roaming profiles have worked
great and most people have no issues with theirs.  However, there are some whose profiles have grown become very large which affects the speed at which the computer logs them on and logs them off.  There is just so much data associated
with their that has to be saved and then downloaded.

My question is this, what steps can the end user take on their part to cleanse their profile?  Clear out the recycle bin, minimize the number of shortcuts they have on their desktop, set IE to clear out temporary internet files when they close but what
are some other things they can do?

I would greatly appreciate any suggestions that I can pass on to the staff.

Greetings All,

I have two questions and hope experts on the Forum are able to help resolving them.

1) Is there a way to add "Project" (to a second screen) to the Action Center Quick Actions at the bottom of the notification panel. Accidentally, I had deleted this and now not able to add it since it is not listed as one of the Quick Actions options under the Notification & Actions in System Setting.

2) All text sizing customizations (Title Bars, Menus, Messages Boxes, Palette Titles, Toolbars, Icons) as well as Clear Type adjustments are completely lost and reset to default after every "Restart" of the system. This does not occur for "Shut Down" or "Sleep."

Thank you in advance for your valued assistance.

I'm looking for a way to give a user admin permissions for his regular AD account on his computer.
Example: he is logged on as a regular user but needs to install software.
I want to give him admin permissions until reboot or some other point in time after which he loses his permissions again and has to ask again.

I know giving admin access to users is a bad idea and all, but that's how it goes.
with "whoami /logonid" I get an ID that I can add to the administrators group by code like this
$objUser = [ADSI]("WinNT://$id")
$objGroup = [ADSI]("WinNT://$computer/Administrators")
To my amazement, this works: now the user can enter his own credentials in a UAC box and get admin access. After a reboot/logon this ID changes so he would need to ask admin permissions again.
It's possible to ask the user for a motivation and log this and to also clean up the administrators group at a given interval or at boot as well as check if a user is allowed to elevate his rights on this computer. Of course once a user has admin rights
he can circumvent all this, but that's something we have to live with. What's most important is dat not just anyone can elevate his rights.
I'm looking for opinions on this way of working. Anyone have experience with this mechanism? Is it reliable and secure (as far as giving admin rights to a user can be secure...)? I may be missing something.

HP's LaserJet's, at least my model 4 and 4+, come with or without
a postscript interpreter. With the PS interpreter it an "m" is added
to the printer model. Adding one of these printers to windows
(for several versions) presents the administrator with several
driver options including:

1) HP LaserJet 4 Plus
2) HP LaserJet 4M Plus
3) HP LaserJet 4M Plus PS 300
4) HP LaserJet 4M Plus PS 600

OK, I understand the basics but not the details and effects of
selecting one driver over another.

Certainly if I select 1) the system will assume the printer has no PS
interpreter and only send PCL output to the printer. But, If I select
2) does that also mean PostScript will never be sent to the printer
as there are PS specific selections in 3) and 4)?

Conversely for 3) or 4) will only PS be sent, with everything
else converted by the driver?

And why resolution specific entries only for 3) and 4). Certainly you
can use either resolution in PCL mode also.

Should I enter 2 separate printers, one for the PCL output and one for PS output? The printer will automatically switch depending on
that is sent to it. Maybe additional ones for "draft" and "final" qualities too
Although I'm using my HP printers as an example, the same lack of
information exists for other printers as they have multiple drivers too. There seems little information available as to the effects or the
reasons for selecting one or another if you have the choice.

I am having a problem with adding a network printer to WIN2K computers on a Novell network. The computer sees the printer just fine but it gives the message "Could Not Communicate with Printer" when trying to add it. It is only one printer that is giving problems and other operating systems (XP for example) do not have this problem. I can add the printer by using the IP address of the printer, but this is more of a patch than an actually fix. The computers with the problem are all Compaq Evo P4s running WIN2K. The printer is an HP5Si.
Any ideas what the problem might be?

But what I neglected to test was accessing the NAS box using an account on any of the computers that was different (acct name and password) from the account that set up the share in the first place. So, I recently tried to access the NAS box from another account and could not. I had to log into the share using the original account name and password.

I have a mate who has very poor eyesight and I've just been helping him and his wife set up their new laptop (Windows 7).

However, I found a little utility (multires) that I can call via a .bat file stored in the respective Startup folder to set the resolution when they log on but now i am looking for a way of re-setting when they switch users as opposed to logging on but can't find a way to do this.

I need a script/batch file that I can click to quickly

enable/disable a user.

How can I do this?

A:Script to disable/enable a user

A one-liner bat file can do that pretty easy. This will do the trick:

To enable a user:

net user username /active:yes
To disable it:

net user username /active:no
Where username is the username to enable/disable.
This requires administrator permission to succeed.

Some reference can be found here:
Enable or Disable user account from command line (CMD)

Hello all, I'm trying to find a script that will allow me to create new users in a new AD including assign them to OU/groups and, if possible, assign permissions to specific shares using a flat file. Has anyone seen something or can help me piece something together?

I've got over 70 users in approximately 15 different groups that I need to add to a new domain and well over 40 shares.

Thank you

A:add new user script w/flat file

I have only seen one that would add new users over at www.swynk.com.

What I have seen is in the 2000 Server Resource kit are a few utilities that can do most of this. The ADDUSERS.EXE utility and the USRTOGRP.EXE utility.

The first adds users based on a comma seperated file and the other uses a file to add users to groups.

The third utility is called RMTSHARE.EXE. It can be used to add, delete or modify a share, including setting permissions.

I can find hp network printer on 3 of my computers but not the 4th one. comes up searching and finds nothing. Why?

A:adding wireless HP printer.

Any chance of wiring that printer to the network? You don't carry it around, do you? I found the HP wireless capability less than 100% reliable. I tried it just to see how it worked, and I was not impressed. My HP C7280 wired to the network has been rock solid.

I'm new to networking but just set up a home network with a wireless D-Link DI-524 a friend gave me. I have a wired desktop and a wireless laptop set up now. My internet connection is DSL and both are running XP. I've configured the router and set up WPA security and everything seems fine. Both can access the web no problem. I have an older HP deskjet 5550 wired to the desktop that I'd like the laptop to print on. Everyone says just click on "sharing" on the printer properties from the desktop and then just add the printer from the laptop. Problem is I can't find the printer anywhere from the laptop. I click on "add network printer or printer hooked up to another computer" and it's not there. I tried "local printer" and nothing. I try to browse for it and nothing. Is there anything else I need to do to get the network to recognize this printer? Sorry for this very amateur question.

Check for firewalls i.e. Windows, Norton, or McAfee. These have most likely been the culprit for me in the past.

Okay, we've got five printers in the office here, and they're all networked and every time I add a computer to the network because of a new hire, I just manually add all of the printers for them.

We just got a new printer and added it to the network.

Question: Is there a way to add this new printer to every computer in the network at once, or do I need to manually go to each computer and add that printer? Your help is greatly appreciated, as always.

A:Adding a printer to the Network

sorry, to my understanding, the client must add the network printer him/herself.
