In the conversion from, you need to finish three steps.
1. For Miniprint.exe is a MS-DOS oriented application, so to convert the document of txt to emf image with this command line application, you can need to open the MS-DOS prompt window at first for inputting your commands.
There are two ways to open MS-DOS prompt window offered in this article. The first one is to click “Start”— “Run” and input “cmd” in “Open” combo box. Then please click “OK” button to launch the command line window. The second way is to use the hot key “Window”+ “R” to open “Run” dialog box in which you should do the same work mentioned in the first method.
2. For converting txt to emf, you need to input the related commands in to MS-DOS prompt window to realize the function. The command line contains three parts—called program, source file and target file. Please see the following command line template.
miniprint.exe C:\in.txt C:\out.emf
miniprint.exe stands for the called program MiniPrint.exe.
C:\in.txt stands for the source file TXT document.
C:\out.emf stands for the target file EMF image file.
