I'm posting this here as it seems to be the right place. The printer is meant
to be shared and installed via IP, and I couldn't find anywhere better to
post this....

Hello, I'm new to WSH programming, and I got a lil' problem that I can't seem
to fix at all.

I'm trying to make a scritp to install a printer via IP on the computer
(trying to do this, to upgrade it later to install multiple printers instead
of just one... if someone got a tutorial on this second part too, I'd be
really happy if you link it to me please).

The problem is... Here is the script: (I'm running this on Windows Vista)

' Script Start

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
objWMIService.Security_.Privileges.AddAsString "SeLoadDriverPrivilege", True

Set objDriver = objWMIService.Get("Win32_PrinterDriver")

objDriver.Name = "Xerox WorkCentre 7665 rev2 PCL6"
objDriver.SupportedPlatform = "Windows NT x86"
objDriver.Version = "3"
objDriver.DriverPath = "C:\Teste\Driver WC7665\xpdprint.dll"
objDriver.Infname = "C:\Teste\Driver WC7665\XLX75XL.inf"
intResult = objDriver.AddPrinterDriver(objDriver)

Set objPrinter = objWMIService.Get("Win32_Printer").SpawnInstance_

objPrinter.DriverName = "IMPAPEX###"
objPrinter.PortName = "IP_10.0.1.72"
objPrinter.DeviceID = "Xerox WorkCentre 7665"
objPrinter.Location = "Location of printer"
objPrinter.Network = True
objPrinter.Shared = True

Wscript.Echo "Instalado!"

' Script Ends

If I run the script, I get this error:

Line: 23
Charact: 1
Error: Generic failure
Code: 80041001
Origem: SWbemObjectEx

That line is the objPrinter.Put_ command... ALL scripts I tried were crushed
on that line...

The printer port is already created, the path is correct, I'm doing this
logged as Admin so I have all permissions, I've tried disabling Drivers
signature (it was suggested by someone else) and it didn't work, I have tried
many things, with no progress.

Does anyone around knows what I could do to make it work?
I can't seem to find anything about this error, like a solid solution for it.

Thanks a lot in advance,

Alexandre Taitson Moreira
