# COMMENT: Simple script to bulk-create printers on a print-server. Printers are imported from a csv-file.
#          Running the script from Windows Server 2003 returns an access denied error, possibly due to the impersonation-model in Windows Server 2003.
#          Created and tested from Windows Server 2008 against a remote Windows Server 2003 print-server.
#          Should work from Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 against remote print-servers (2000/2003/2008/2008 R2)
