Find Default printer and Script icapture command

Hi,

Does anyone know how to find the default printer on a machine and then use
the result in a scripted icapture command (capture lpt1)?

The whole process needs to be automated.

The PCs are windows 2000 pro sp4, NW Client 4.90 sp1, iprint client 4.05

Cheers

Gareth

Re: Find Default printer and Script icapture command

You should look at the Microsoft Web Site. They have a webm type interface
(search for "scriptomatic" on the MS site). This will show you how to use
the WMI interface that is available on all Win2, and XP machines to query
the system for information such as this. After doing the query, you can
get the info you need and pass it to an icapture command...

It is possible....
