Windows 7: VBS Script for adding network printer not working on Win7

VBS Script for adding network printer not working on Win7

I am using the below script to install a network printer. For XP, the script is working fine but when I tried to run it on a Windows 7 machine. It gives me an error. Can help to check it out? The driver is found on a network drive.

I also need this to work with only user access rights.

PathToDLL = "\\..\Command\PRNADMIN.DLL"
portloc = "10...."
DriverName = "FX DocuCentre-IV C4470 PCL 6"
PrintQueueName = "FX DocuCentre-IV C4470 PCL 6"

set wshshell = wscript.createobject("")
set fso = createobject("scripting.filesystemobject")

fso.copyfile PathToDLL, "\\..\Command\PRNADMIN.DLL", True "regsvr32 /s ""\\...\selfhelp\Command\PRNADMIN.DLL""", , True
wscript.sleep 1000

dim oPort
dim oMaster
set oPort = CreateObject("Port.Port.1")
set oMaster = CreateObject("PrintMaster.PrintMaster.1")

portinput = "IP_" & portloc
oPort.ServerName = ""

sPortExist = False
for each oPort in oMaster.Ports("")
if oPort.PortName = portinput then
sPortExist = True
End If

If sPortExist = False then

set oPort = CreateObject("Port.Port.1")
oPort.PortName = portinput
oPort.PortType = 2
oPort.HostAddress = portloc
oPort.PortNumber = 9100
oPort.QueueName = "lp"
oPort.DoubleSpool = true
oPort.SNMP = false
oMaster.PortAdd oPort
if Err <> 0 then
msgbox "an error occurred"
end if

End If

dim oPrinter
set oPrinter = CreateObject("Printer.Printer.1")

oPrinter.DriverPath = "\\...\FX DocuCentre-IV C4470\Win2000_XP"
oPrinter.InfFile = "\\...\FX6KYAL.inf"

oPrinter.ServerName = ""
oPrinter.PrinterName = PrintQueueName
oPrinter.DriverName = DriverName
oPrinter.PortName = portinput
oMaster.PrinterAdd oPrinter
if Err.number <> 0 then
msgbox "an error occurred"
msgbox "Printer Installed Successfully"
End If

set oport = nothing
set oPrinter = nothing
set oMaster = nothing

set wshshell = nothing
set fso = nothing
