Hi Gerald,

	Thanks a lot for the update. I shall explain the scenario in
which I have asked this. May be you can help me in a better way.

	I work on a printer with VxWorks as OS. We have ported Samba on
to it. Now I have to create Point and Print binary file. For that I have
to get the ntdrivers.tdb file. I am currently working on automating the
process. If I can create the ntdrivers tdb file without installing the
drivers,  then it would help in my automation process. Can you please
guide me regarding this?

	Thanking you and expecting a reply from you.

Thanks and Regards,

Sure.  You just have to create the correct data blobs. It's
not recommended though since we can change the storage format
from time to time.  That's why we don't provide the appropriate
functions externally.
