If you mean the "virtual" printer in Snagit...then yes you can do it.

A normal printer uses the command line

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry [options]

You can check this out further here.


Adding the virtual printer in Snagit is not the same from memory and you can look here for details.


Try doing a capture and once your happy you have a clean msi just add a stop and start to the Spooler service to install the printer.

ps....Make sure your capture detects Hardware settings changes to get the printer install correct
