Script to change Print Processors on WS2008 x64?

    Question

  • We have a host of HP network printers on our print server (Server 2008 r1, 64b) that use the HP Universal Print Driver PCL6.

    Also, we use the WinPrint processor instead of HP's as we find it is far more reliable at our University.

    However, we have noticed that many of the printers are reverting BACK to the default HP Print processor.

    Does anybody have a scripted solution (vbscript) where we can change the Print Processor's back to WinPrint?

     

    Thank You

  • Grab setprinter.exe from the Server 2003 resource kit.  You can use that to change the print processors.
