Does anyone know of a script command which will install a network printer for all users on a PC?

As you are probably aware by default it will only install the printer for the person logged on at the time.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I assume your talking about network shared printers.

In order to do this, log on as a user, then add the network share printer. Log off, and then on as administrator, then copy the contents of the users profile to the default user profile. This will add the shared printer to anyone who logs on.

This is according to this article anyway.

Also this one with registry edits that supposedly allows a permanent change to allow all shared printers added to be available for all users.
