    If a user navigates to the printers on a domain controller, they can
    double click on the Printer Icon and it will install the printer on
    their machine. That's great as long as the user knows what server the
    printer server is. I have imbed a floor map on a page and I'd like to
    put hyperlinks to the appropriate printer on the Print Server. This
    way as long as a user can get to my site, they can map their own
    printers without having to get a member of IT to do it for them. I've
    tried the traditional URL's and they don't work. ie \\DC01\HPPrinter.
    Initially, so as to get this going, I've put an IFrame on the page,
    mapping to the Printers. The problem with this is that the view
    depends on whether or not their Explorer view is set to Common Tasks in
    Folders or Classic Folders. Although this works, the prefered view is
    Hyperlinks without the IFrame.

    How can I set a Hyperlink to install the Printers?
