How to hook the printed data from windows printer and add our company logo as watermark to printout?

Hi Support

Good Morning.

I'm looking on your product if this can help us on one of our current use case.

Does the verypdf supports hooking of printed data from windows printer or print to file outputs and send data output into a virtual serial port, from which we can stream for reading and adding watermark for print commands to a special printers devices?

We will do the translation of data to known language of the end print devices. We just need to know if the software will help us read/hook data so that we can stream, read and translate it.

If yes, I would like to buy this product if you can help us on this issue we have.

Kind Regards,
Customer

docPrint 8.0 Converter with Hookprint does not work after I logged out the system. How to make a Virtual Printer Router?

I am running Doc Convert Pro on a Server with hook print.

When I am logged in it works, but when the server is running and none logged in it does not work.

How can I solve this issue?

Customer
------------------------------------------

Thanks for your message, when you logged out the system, the docPrint Pro software does stop working, so the HookPrinter Layer does stop working too.

This is because docPrint Pro and HookPrinter Layer are work as normal Windows application, they are not Windows Service.

If you wish docPrint Pro and HookPrinter to work continue after you logged out the system, you may login your system from Remote Desktop, run HookPrinter Layer from docPrint Pro software, and close Remote Desktop, leave this user logged in, when someone print a document to Windows Printer in this system, HookPrinter will capture the print jobs and save to PDF or Text files automatically.

VeryPDF

Remark: VeryPDF has two technologies to capture print jobs and save to PDF, Text and Image files.

1. HookPrinter technology: This technology will install a Hook Layer into Spooling system, when you print a document to a Windows Printer, Hook Layer will capture the print jobs and save to PDF, Text and Image files, the spooling data format is depend on original hooked printer driver, the spooling data format may be Postscript, PCL, PDF, XPS, EPS, EMF-SPL, PRN, RAW, etc. formats.

Please refer to more articles about HookPrinter technology from VeryPDF Knowledge Base,

http://www.verypdf.com/wordpress/?s=hookprinter

2. Virtual Printer Router technology: This technology will install a virtual printer into your system, you may make a connection between this virtual printer to another Windows Printer, such as Printer B, when you print a document to this virtual printer, this virtual printer will save the print jobs to PDF, Text and Image files, at same time, it will forward the print jobs to another Windows Printer continue, this virtual printer is a Virtual Printer Router, it's a bridge to connect this virtual printer with another Windows Printer.

You can use EMF/PDF/Image Virtual Printer Driver SDK for Windows to implement a Virtual Printer Router easily,

I want to merge some billing PDF files together and format the output PDF files to PDF/A files

I have some pre-purchase questions, please. I need to know about your product. I would like to purchase today if possible. Could I get someone to contact me by phone?

Sample questions:

I am going to write a command line utility to merge some billing files together. This will be running on a Terminal Server (and on my PC for development and testing purposes). There are usually 2 people performing billing functions. I want anyone on the terminal server to be able to use the utility (since we may cross train people later).

  1. Is the output file formatted as a PDF/A?
  2. Are there any limitations for file size (This should not be a problem / I'm just curious)

Thanks.

I want to monitor a printer, I need to print from 2 computers to that printer with hookprinter to create PDF and Text files

I want to run Docprint Converter on a shared printer. Need to print from 2 computers to that printer with hookprinter to create a pdf and text. What version do I need?

Thanks for your message, yes, you can use docPrint Pro v8.0 to hook printers to create PDF files and text files, you may download docPrint Pro v8.0 from this web page to try,

http://www.verypdf.com/app/document-converter/try-and-buy.html#buy_pro

http://www.verypdf.com/artprint/docprint_pro_setup.exe

docPrint Pro v8.0 does support VM (VMWare) system, so you can install it to a vmware system to hook printers properly.

Please notice, the HookPrinter Layer does support capture all print jobs which sent from local system, it can't capture the print jobs which outside this system, for example, if you print a document from another Windows System to another network printer, the HookPrinter Layer in current system can't capture anything, because those print jobs are not go through current system at all.

After you install docPrint Pro v8.0, you can run following command line to configure hookprinter layer,

"C:\Program Files (x86)\docPrint Pro v8.0\artprint.exe" -hookprinter

You can set the output folder for captured PDF and Text files, after you install the HookPrinter Layer, the HookPrinter Layer will be run at background, when you print a document to arbitrary printer, the captured PDF and Text files will be created in the predefined folder.
