    I still cannot find a solution.

    I've tried the following commands:

    1.) export on the server:
    rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /Ss /n "PRT10" /a "D:\support\prt10.dat"

    2.) import on a client:
    rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /Sr /n "PRT10" /a "S:\prt10.dat"

    but get this error by importing on a client computer:

    "OPERATION COULD NOT BE COMPLETED (ERROR 0X00000709).
    DOUBLE CHECK THE PRINTER NAME AND MAKE SURE THE PRINTER IS CONNECTED TO THE NETWORK.
    "

    BTW The printer is connected to the network, I can add it using GPO without any problems and is printing from this client computer.

    My problem are the settings, because GPO can add a printer to a client, without specific printer settings.
