Chgprint.exe is included in Supplement 4 for the NT Server Resource Kit.

This tool assists networkadministrators in managing printer shares.

When an administrator adds or removes a print server, changes a print server's name, or consolidates print queus, the printer connections must be changed manually on every affected desktop.

With Change Printer Utility installed on those desktops, the administrator can simply instruct users to run the tool after changes in print servers. Change Printer changes, adds or removes printer connections. If a replaced printer had been the default printer on a particular computer, the tool makes the replacement printer the default printer.

The utility can be run from a share, from your intranet, or in a batch. Chgprint.exe runs on Windows NT.
