Installing Postscript printer using existing port programatically RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have installer (vbs) which installs custom postscript printer. We have below components:

    1. Inf file

    2. Ppd file

    -Installer installs PortMonitor and port as first step (Working fine)

    - Uses rundll32.exe to install printer ( using printui.dll,PrintUIEntry) using existing port created in step1. This is working fine on all the English OS versions.

    However, on French OS printer does not get installed. Port gets created perfectly fine. If I manually install the printer using Inf file then works fine.

    Any idea on this issue? Please let me know.

  • HI,
    I found the issue. It was due to parameter /v[version] of rundll32.exe is in French language. Instead of "Type 3 - User Mode" it is "Type 3 - Mode utilisateur".On changing this driver got installed.

    Hope this helps to others who face similar issue.
