Here are the converting steps of url to tiff,please pay attention.
Step1.Have cmd.exe program launched.
There are two ways to run cmd.exe program.
Method1.Use the hot key.You can press “Windows”+ “R” combination on your keyboard and input “cmd” in popup dialog box,then click “OK” button.
Metod2.You can also click “start”—“run” showed in Figure1 and input “cmd” in “open” edit box of the popup dialog box,then click “OK” button like Figure2.
Step2.Input command line in cmd.exe dialog box.There is an executable file in software HTML Converter Command Line called htmltools.exe which is the called program in the conversion of url to tiff.It is also the most important part in command line which should contain called program,source file and target file.Please see Figure3.
From Figure3 you can see there is a main structure of the command line:
“htmltools.exe” “www.verypdf.com” output.tiff
htmltoools.exe stands for called program.
www.verypdf.com stands for source file.
output.tiff stands for target file.
The whole commands are "C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe" "www.verypdf.com" verypdf.tiff
"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe" is the path of htmltools.exe.The path seems too long to input.So you can copy the path of the file and right click your mouse in cmd.exe dialog box,which means “paste” to input the directory.Of course for convenience,you can drag the file you need into cmd.exe dialog directly.
www.verypdf.com is the URL of some webpage you want to convert.
verypdf.tiff is the name of target file.
Step3.Find the target file.
The target file will be saved in current directory by default because you didn’t specify the path for target file in command line.Of course you can set a suitable one.
