A. I created the following script, which you can download here , that makes a WMI call and lists details about the printers known on the system:

                              Option Explicit                              Dim objWMIService, objPrinter, colItems, strComputer                              strComputer ="."                              Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer &                                 "\root\CIMV2")                              Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("SELECT * FROM Win32_Printer")                              ' On Error Resume Next                              For Each objPrinter In colItems                                 Wscript.Echo "DeviceID: " & objPrinter.DeviceID                                  Wscript.Echo "Caption: " & objPrinter.Caption                                  Wscript.Echo "ServerName: " & objPrinter.ServerName                                  Wscript.Echo "ShareName: " & objPrinter.ShareName                                  Wscript.Echo "DriverName: " & objPrinter.DriverName                                  Wscript.Echo "Default: " & objPrinter.Default                              Next                              WScript.Quit                              
Here's an example of the script's output.
