"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe" -bitcount 8 "C:\Program Files\docPrint Pro v5.0\blank.emf" blank.tif

"C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Local Settings\Temp\htmltools\htmltools.exe"  is the path of called program—htmltools.exe.

-bitcount 8  is the value of bit depth.

"C:\Program Files\docPrint Pro v5.0\blank.emf"  is the path of source file.

The paths of called program and source file are a little long to input.You can decrease your operating time by the following two ways.

(1)Copy the path of the file and right click your mouse to paste the path in cmd.exe dialog box.

(2)Drag the file you need into cmd.exe dialog box directly.
