    I install network printers, and frequently like to add drivers before the printer is networked due to time constraints. However, when adding a TCP/IP printer on a port that is going unused, Windows takes quite a while as it tries to detect the printer. I'm trying to figure out a way to forgo this waiting process, and force it to just take me directly to the next screen (where I select what type of network card the device has). Using prnport.vbs does not work with this, and it gives an error message, even if it is in administrative mode.
