Printix Configurator for Windows version 1.3.1202 or later can use a CSV file with computers and print queues to add print queues to computers. Only if Printix Administrator has a matching Hostname of a computer and a matching print queue name, will the computer have the print queue added. Uppercase and lowercase letters are treated the same. The adding of the print queue is done as a task. If a computer is offline, it will pick up on the tasks once it comes online.
