iPrint Client Install w/Login Script

Dumb question maybe, but how do you install the iPrint client with a
login script?

I have found the iprintcmd.exe printer install, but not the client itself.

thanks

you must have rights to install the client. So you would need to be an
administrator for the client to install. You just put the nipp.exe in the
script and it would run

Re: iPrint Client Install w/Login Script

Like iprint said in his message, you need administrator rights to install
the iPrint client.
If your users have administrator rights or you have a way to run a program
with admin rights, then you can use any of the variations of the iPrint
client that suits you. You find the different versions in this archive:

nipp.exe is the only that prompts the user for install.
nipp-s.exe is the "silent" version that doesn't require user interaction.
It's not really silent as it still shows installation progress. It's my
personal favourite because users have no chance to screw the installation.
nipp-sr.exe is similar but also does a reboot. This is only needed if you
use icapture and want to update your client.

If your workstations are members of a M$ domain, the iPrint client can be
copied to and installed from it using a script. Using a domain admin
level account to launch the script will take care of it. Use the runas
command.

You can also use a program called SANUR which you can obtain by a simple
google search. What I have done in the past is create a batch file that
copies the sanur.exe file down to the workstation then have the batch
file run the iPrint client install using the SANUR and runas command.
The sanur utility allows you to pass on the password credentials needed
for the proper rights. The only problem is that it isn't encrypted.
