I have create a scipt to auto create and install printers for
our XP Deployment. The script works fine but I need to see the preferences
for the printers at least set them to A4 because after I have run my script
every printer defaults to "Letter"

How can I do this. Have searched the Web but can't seem to find out how this
is done.

Also How can I set additional Printer preferences such as what trays to add
etc.

I know when I run rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /? I get help and can
see that /Ss option Store Printer Settings into a file. This sounds like what
I need but what syntax do I put into the file. Do I just put in A4 etc ???

Here is a copy of my script. At the University here we don't use Printer
servers eveywhere we print directly to the IP address and this works okay but
eventually we will use Print Servers much easier I know.
