Managing Printers Low-Level

by Jul 24, 2014

All PowerShell versions

Recent Windows operating systems like Windows 8 and Server 2012 come with great printing support, but if you run older Windows versions, then this call may help:

PS> rundll32.exe PRINTUI.DLL,PrintUIEntry


Note that this call is case-sensitive! Do not add spaces, and do not change casing.

The call opens a help window with a great number of sample calls that illustrate how you can install, remove and copy printer drivers, among other things. This tool will also work remotely, provided you allowed remote access via appropriate group policies.
