Setting a default printer for the DEFAULT USER

I have a Vista (enterprise) machine that is joined to a domain.

There are ~8 printers defined.

How do I set which of these printers is the default one selected for a
new user that logs on?


I can do this either from the local group policy, or the registry.

Re: Setting a default printer for the DEFAULT USER
the print scripts in \system32\printing_admin_scripts\en_us use the WMI
interface to make the set_default_printer spooler call


cscript prnmngr.vbs -t -p "printer name"
