VeryPDF docPrint Pro supports all Windows OS. Taking Windows XP as an example, you can open the command prompt window as follows: click on the button Start > select Run from the Start menu, > type “cmd” in the Run dialog box> and click on the button OK.
2. Type a command line
In the command prompt window that pops out, please type a command line in it. You may need to refer to the following basic usage of the main executable file named doc2pdf.exe in the default folder named doc2pdf on your computer:
doc2pdf [options] <-i Document Files> [-o Output files]
Taking the following command line as an example, it can be used to convert a single Word file in the format DOC to a WMF file.
“C:\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe” -i C:\in.doc -o D:\out.wmf
If you are careful, you must have noticed that the first directory is enclosed by a pair of quotation marks. This is because there are some gaps in the directory. “C:\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf” is the directory of the executable file. C:\in.doc is the directory of the input file. Preceding the directory, -i stands for input. D:\out.wmf is the directory of the output file. Before the directory, -o stands for output. Don’t forget to press Enter after you type a command line according to your priority. You can also use VeryPDF docPrint Pro to convert multiple Word to WMF in batch. Just use an asterisk * to represents all the files in a folder, like d:\*.doc.
