Re: Vista Network printer connection
As we know some group policies working for XP may not work for Vista. Do you
use GP to apply the script? Or post the script.

Re: Vista Network printer connection

We were placing the script in the startup folder in windows xp. Where do
I put the script in Group Policy? Can you use group policy only without
Active Directory?
