Not exactly sure what is for that printer in particular but alot of times you can put a /? after the exe at the command line, and it will give you a list of switches. With printers, i have been extracting the files from the .exe using 7zip and then using a script to install the driver. The script looks something like this:


REM Install Printer Driver

cscript C:\Windows\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US\prndrvr.vbs -a -m "Name of Driver" -h "Path to the folder that the .inf file is in"-i "Path to the .inf file (Including the .inf file)"

I copy the folder that the files are in to windows\Temp folder before I run this script. and then delete the folder afterwards.

  • This is for Windows 7. Not exactly sure where the prndrvr.vbs file is for Windows XP, I think it is directly under System32.
  • In Windows 7 the printer control scripts can be found under %WINDIR%\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US\
