Depends on installed software

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to Windows XP Batch script f ...

You will probbaly have to buy some.

If you are using acrobat reader for instance, you can call it with a file and a /p parameter. Unfortunately those nice people at adobe realised no one was paying for their stuff, so the stopped it from closing at the end of the print run. You can get round that but it's messy.

A linux box would do it easy, AcroBat Pro would, people like AmyUni (they sell a pdf printer driver), or you could write a program to do it.

In short yes but no but.

I have Acrobat Reader 9.0

by Bizzo In reply to Windows XP Batch script f ...

The command line to print using Acrobat Reader 9.0 is:

"c:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" /p /h "filename.pdf"

If you have a different version, or if it's installed in a different location, the commandline will be different.
