      This is for a vpn user. Usually I remote to pc and login as self w win10 machines to install software. This doensn't work w VPN user though because it breaks their vpn when I try to log in. 
      Currently they are on on the network but I ran the cmd and it says it was successful. Did I do this right for a printer driver? Or is a batch needed for the gui install of driver too? Thanks
