Windows 7: Trying to add a networked printer.

Trying to add a networked printer.

Hi,

I am a student worker and I am having a problem with a small project that I'm working on.

I have a user that wants one of our computer labs to have his networked printer added into the list of available printers. The Printer is a Brother HL-5250DN, and I already have the .inf driver. I have written a script but it does not seem to work. I am replacing the printers IP address with a generic loopback for my example.

My Script:

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in 127.0.0.1 /ia /f C:\Brother\BRHL5250\BROHLA5A.inf

I put the script and .inf driver file on the server and sent the job to a computer to test it, and it failed and I am receiving error "0X00000709". Basically the error is saying that the printer cannot be found, but this is the IP address that the faculty member supplied. Any ideas as to what I did wrong, and/or how to improve this script?

Thanks in advance for any help.
