Adding a printer manually doesn't display the printer name



Hi, I wanted to add a printer programmatically, e.g. "HP Color LaserJet 5M",
so I added it using "Add Printer Wizard" while I monitored all files added
and registry changes. Then I stored those files and reg changes to several
REG files, and deleted the printer immediately from "Printers and Faxes".
Then I ran those REG files but the printer name "HP Color..." didn't appear
under "Printer and Faxes".

So my fundamental question is,
is it possible to add the printer name without "Add Printer Wizard"?
If so, how?
