If you are automating the printing process using the script file it is a good practice to use a copy of the printer for your automation process to use. This  allows you to automate and not interfere with the regular use of the printer. This also protects your automation process from other programs and process who may be using this printer as well.

It is also good practice to associate a unique script file with each printer. See the next section for details on how to do this.

1.From the Start menu use go to Programs - Raster Image Printer 11.0 - Copy Printer…

2.Type in a name for your new printer instance and click OK.

To create a copy of the printer programmatically, you can call PNCopyPrinter11.exe from the command line as shown:


C:\Program Files\Raster Image Printer 11.0\Setups\PNCopyPrinter11.exe "Raster Image Printer 11.0" "My New Printer"



Uninstalling the printer driver through Add/Remove Programs will remove all instances of the printer from your computer. Deleting a printer from the Printers and Faxes windows does not remove the printer driver, just the printer icon from the Printers and Faxes window.
