Re: How to use printbrm.exe to migrate individual printers ?
PrintBrm.exe or the Printer Migration tool is seen as a printer admin type
of tool. As such it won't be installed on any Home SKUs. That said it can
target home machines that have shared printers both for export & import.
As to the core of your question, there is currently no way to select
individual printers / drivers / etc. We are *talking* about it for Windows
7, but I wouldn't hold your breath.
P.S. You may want to take a look at using the PrintBrmUI.exe--this is a
simple wizard that simplifies the core uses of the printbrm.exe.
