Assigning Printers to Windows Vista Workstations

I have a script that assigns printers to the workstations... it seems to be working fine when connecting printers to windows xp workstations, but not with windows vista.

I've tried a few combination's but either have no connection or it asks to install printer driver at logon but the printer still doesn't appear.

' Read security group membership
adsDomainGroups.Filter = Array("Group")
For Each adsGroup in adsDomainGroups
 Group = UCase(

UserName = UCase(WshNetwork.UserName)
server = "\\server" 'Change to match the users server

 If group = UCASE("staff") Then CheckGroup, Username, home, server & "\staff$\" & UserName, "staff"
' Maps network drives
    WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "x:", server & "\shared"
    WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "s:", server & "\software"
    WshNetwork.MapNetworkDrive "y:", server & "\Childrens Shared"
' Adds classroom printers
        PrinterPath1 = server & "\ICT Suite"
        PrinterDriver1 = "Generic 35C-4 Series PS"
        Wshnetwork.addwindowsprinterconnection Printerpath1, Printerdriver1
        Wshnetwork.setdefaultprinter server & "\ICT Suite"[/B]

are the printer drivers compatible with Vista? Can you add the printers manually while logged in as the user?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
