my organization just bought a Kace k2000 and am looking for a way to install our printers via batch or script. Normally I install them by creating a new tcp/ip port and installing the drivers from a location on our network.

For an example:

The ip would be
the printer name is Production and the driver is located at:
the driver is located here: P:\OHS Print Drivers\_Adoption_Production\Production\Win_x86

Some of our printers need me to add the finisher after installation. I'm not sure if there is a way to do this as well but that would be great.

Any help is appreciated, even just pointing me in the right direction would go a long way toward getting the job done.

You could also use the printui.exe. Just type in a cmd windows "printui.exe /?" to get the available switches.
Worked fine for me a couple of times.

i think printui.exe came with vista or 7.
for xp and older you need to use
"rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry"
just enter it in a cmd and it will popup a little readme dialog
