I downed the newest Driver from HP.
I tried to install it via the recommended Script prndrvr.vbs
cscript %windir%\system32\prndrvr.vbs -a -m "LJ5100 PCL6 21-7-9" -h
after some search on the net i found that non signed driver fail to install
that way cause they cannot be silenced
The Problem is that this is a signed driver !
Trying it old school :
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ia /m "HP LaserJet 5100 PCL 6" /f
This installs the driver just fine, BUT you can see a copy Box on the Screen.
When i add the quiet switch /q
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /q /ia /m "HP LaserJet 5100 PCL 6" /f
then there is no installation. I need a solution for that, because
installing the driver on older machines will keep the progress bar window
just long enough on the screen for an user to stop it ! ( ItÂ´s not only
As far as I understand MS Policy on signed Drivers they should support the
OS in full ( which includes switches which worked also on older HP Driver ).
Has anybody a solution for that, or is this case at least work in progress
at HP or MS ??
