Windows scripts can't print
I've spent over a week on 7 different forums, including Microsoft's own VBScript forum, trying to find someone who can help me write a simple script that downloads a page from a specific URL and automatically print it on a secondary printer (not the default). After all that, I found out vbscript can only print on the default. I might be able to change the default, then print, but that would conflict with other software.
Someone wrote one for me (I don't know vbscript) but it only prints on the default. I'd bet I can get this to work on fbsd with 10 lines or so of bash but I'm being told to get a Windows box, download the .NET platform, learn it all, then write my own. Those who are more helpful give me pointers on where to look in the docs but it either doesn't do what I want or is far more involved than I care for.
If someone here knows of a simpler way to do this, I'd appreciate it, but
For all the hype of .NET and Windows tools, and how many people act like they know so much about all that and how wonderful it all is....well....you know how I feel.
