    Just tried this and I get a normal MSGBOX, not a balloontip like they have at the college.

    I have tried this on two PCs (one with ballontips disabled via GPO, and the other normal) and both just show the msgbox and not a balloontip.

    Is there a way to have this message in a balloon tip? I have had a look on the internet and haven't really found anything useful.

    Thanks

    To get a balloontip which is easily missed anyway I think you need to have something running in the notification area to create it.

    We just use a msgbox.

    Re: Can printer script be applied to a Computer in Group Policy?

    I think using vbscript to create a balloon is going to be a no goer, why not just use:

    Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    x = WshShell.Popup ("Default printer is 06laser01", 5, , 0 + 64)

    That at least times out after 5 seconds and dissappears if they don't click on it.
