comments: Windows NT, it is possible to bring up a predefined Windows Dialog box for
            connecting to a network printer - the ConnectToPrinterDlg API. However, this dialog is not accessible by Visual Basic programs
            running under Windows 95. Therefore, you must use a Command line equivalent statement to invoke the "Add Printer
            Wizard" under Windows 95 as detailed above. (KB article Q154007)
