Mapped printers not taking settings across
I have an issue with the printers taking settings for double sided and default to black and white...
The printer is shared on a server 2008R2 server, it's not deployed via GPO at the moment due to the XP machines onthe network + not able to be 100% sure if they all have the GP extentions addon intalled but anyway...
The printers are mapped by batch file with the following code:
@Echo Mapping Printers
\\archway.local\netlogon\machine\chres 1440 900 32 60
\\archway.local\netlogon\machine\con2prt /c "\\printsrv\library"
First line changes the computer resolution to that of the PCs in the library, second line i can't remember what /f does, 3rd line adds the shared printer
On XP machines that always worked fine, on windows 7 everything sets to default as though you've just manually installed the printer on that machine locally, any ideas of how i go about sorting this?

I use this -
It adds the printer with /in then /q is for silent install then the second run sets it as default with /y
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /q /n\\server\SHARPBWCopier
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /q /n\\server\SHARPBWCopier /y
Full list of commands is here - Command Line Printer Control
Hope this helps?
