Installing a network printer

Recommended Posts

We're trying to setup the network printer (which is actually a network printer with an IP address.

How would I go about setting it up to install during the unattended install Of XP Pro.

I've slipstreamed the driver (and sp2) and I saw in the setupmgr a place for printers but from what I could tell it required a share.

The printer is an hp lazerjet 4200 if that makes a difference.

I did a search and found a couple post about doing it but I'm rather new to unattended and it was over my head.

Attaching Network printers unattended during installation is not easy.

I'll use this to install the driver:

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ia /K /m "Samsung ML-1200 Series" /h "Windows NT x86" /v 3 /f %cdrom%\Install\Samsung\SSGS1.inf

and this after it to add the printer to the system:

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /n\\PC\ML1210 /q /u

where %cdrom%\Install\Samsung\SSGS1.inf is the path to the driver inf and \\PC\ML1210 is the path of the Networkshare.


rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /?

for more information / switches
