Installing HP Colour Laserjet c3525n using inf files
I have a networked printer in one of my schools and i am trying to automate the installation of it through a batch file.
I have to install it through it's IP Address (no print servers unfortunately). This is fine i have got a registry key which creates the port:
(i have left the IP address out)
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\Standard TCP/IP Port\Ports\]
the registry is silently imported through the batch file, spooler service is the stopped and restarted to refresh the ports. i then use printui.dll to install the printer. I specified the inf file i used in the add printer wizard and this is where it fails.
When i run the batch file it tells me that it is unable to find a suitable driver. this is the only printer i cannot install through this method.
Does anyone have any ideas?
