Installing Seagull drivers in silent/ automated mode Follow


BarTender Content Team


The Seagull Driver Wizard v7.2 and higher supports a command line interface that allows you to easily install and remove printer drivers via command line parameters.

The Seagull Driver Wizard supports inline commands, as well as batch files with multiple commands.

Tip: Installing Authenticode signature prior to Seagull Driver installation so all drivers signed by Seagull install without the security prompts on any computer on that domain.




DriverWizard.exe install /name:"Printer Name" /model:"Driver Name" /default /share:"Share Name" /port:"LPT1"
DriverWizard.exe install /autodetect


Command Parameters




The name of the printer.  (This is the "friendly" name shown in the Printers Folder.)


The name of the driver.


This will set the printer as the default printer.


This will set the printer as a shared printer with the specified name.


The port the printer is connected to.


DriverWizard will look for any PnP printers that were recently connected and install the driver.





DriverWizard.exe remove /printer:"Name of Printer"
DriverWizard.exe remove /driver:"Name of Driver"
DriverWizard.exe remove /all /driver
DriverWizard.exe remove /all /driver:"Name of Printer Manufacturer"
DriverWizard.exe remove /monitor:"Name of Monitor"

Command Parameters
