Add a password to Windows Printer, when a print job is submitted from any application, a popup appears asking for a password to continue

Hello,

We need to develop software that does the following:

- On any windows machine that it is installed on, when a print job is submitted from any application, a popup appears asking for a password to continue. If correct password entered, allow job to print. Else raise error message and terminate job.

- For every print job that is submitted, record the details into a database - text content in the print job, date and time of printing etc.

We need this software to support windows 7 upwards, and any type of printer.

Please provide an estimate of time required and cost for the same.

Thanks,
Customer

Hello,

Can you confirm a few things?

- The pop-up to request user login will appear automatically when a print request is filed from any application, right? The user would not have to invoke anything separate manually. Would this be done as a new printer driver that will need to be installed? Would this work with any printer - local or network?

- The file that is being printed will get scanned by the software and any text that can be extracted from the file will get stored in database along with user name, date and time. Correct? Would this use PDF OCR technology?

Please confirm the above and provide some more technical details on what technology components and coding languages will be used for the above.

Thanks,
Customer

>>Can you confirm a few things?
>>- The pop-up to request user login will appear automatically when a print request is filed from any application, right?

Yes, you are right, the login dialog will appear automatically when a user print a document to any Windows Printer.

>>The user would not have to invoke anything separate manually. Would this be done as a new printer driver that will need to be installed? Would this work with any printer - local or network?

The user needn't run anything manually.

No, you needn't install a new Printer Driver.

Yes, it works for any Windows Printer, include local and network printers.

Because all printers are controlled by Windows Spooler System, we will add a hook layer to Windows Spooler System, then we can stop/cancel/resume printer jobs easily.

>>- The file that is being printed will get scanned by the software and any text that can be extracted from the file will get stored in database along with user name, date and time. Correct? Would this use PDF OCR technology?

Yes, this can be done by OCR technology, we have a "PDF to Text OCR Converter Command Line" software, this software can be used to convert any PDF documents to text files, include scanned PDF files and non-scanned PDF files,

A point of sale system is printing a receipt and I want the solution to capture the data, save to PDF and other formats

Hi,

I want to be able to capture all receipts that a point of sale system sends to the printer and send them to an external system. I have seen some limited information on line about the "VeryDOC Printer Capturer" that seems to do the job. Can you send me further information about that?

Customer
----------------------------------------------------------
>>How to get VeryDOC Printer Capturer?

Thanks for your message, we have more types of Printer Capturer software, you can download and test each one from following URLs,

Solution 2. VeryPDF docPrint Printer Capturer

VeryPDF docPrint Printer Capturer is a special version of docPrint which contain two virtual printers and a Printer Capturer module, after you install it, you will see two virtual printers appear in the Printer&Fax folder, after you enable Printer Capturer Module and print a document to docPrint, docPrint Printer Capturer will work by following steps,

1. You enable Printer Capturer Module and print a document to "HP LaserJet Professional P1108" or other printers,
2. Printer Capturer Module will capture this print job, redirect it to docPrint virtual printer,
3. docPrint virtual printer will convert this print job to PDF, PS, EPS, TIF, JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF, etc. formats first, and forward original print job to original printer ("HP LaserJet Professional P1108" or other printers) continue,
4. OK, the original printing process will continue and without any interruption, but you will get PDF, PS, EPS, TIF, JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF, etc. formats during printing.

We have created an evaluation version of docPrint Printer Capturer to you, you may download it from following URL,

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

You need click "Save&Close" button to close this dialog, and print a document to an arbitrary Windows Printer, you will get captured documents appear in predefined folder automatically.

3. OK.

"-hookprinter" option will capture everything that you sent to any Windows Printer. If you want just print a document to docPrint first, and then forward to other printers, you can use "-forward-options" option, for example,

"C:\Program Files (x86)\docPrint Pro v7.0\artprint.exe" -forward-options

After you set the options, click "Save&Close" button to close this dialog, when an user print a document to docPrint, docPrint will redirect the print job to predefined printer properly.

"-hookprinter" and "-forward-options" are two different printer capture and forwarding methods, you can choose either one according to your requirements.

Print a document to a local printer and clone printed data to PDF, JPG, TIFF formats, monitor System Printers and record print logs to database

Hello,

We are a DLP system developer and would like to have a functionality similar to "artprint.exe -hookprinter" in our DLP system.

A typical scenario is the following,

A user prints a document to a regular (local, network, third party virtual, whatever) printer (not to your virtual printer) as usual and the printing should be successful without any sings of the monitoring presence. The monitoring should just clone data the user prints to jpg/tiff/pdf (not important at the moment) files, page by page.

"artprint.exe -hookprinter" works perfectly for that, but it requires docPrint installed.
We would like to have the printer monitoring functionality integrated into our system completely though.

I've found HookPrinter.zip on your site ( http://www.verypdf.com/app/hookprinter/index.html )
that looks as a solution. But I was not able to make it operable standalone (without docPrint installed). Is it expected?
Could you navigate me please?

Also, if I might ask you, please make the developer license complete text available to me.

Thanks in advance,
Customer

Thanks for your message, yes, HookPrinter.zip is a choice to you, you can use HookPrinter.zip to capture printed jobs to SPL files, after that, you can use "VeryPDF SPL to PDF Converter Command Line" to convert from SPL files to PDF, JPG, TIFF, PNG, etc. other formats at later,

http://www.verypdf.com/app/hookprinter/spool-spl-to-pdf-converter.html
http://www.verypdf.com/dl2.php/spl2pdf_cmd.zip

You can use administrator privilege to install "HookPrinter SDK" into your system to try, please refer to user manual from this web page,

http://www.verypdf.com/app/hookprinter/user-guide.html

If you encounter any problem with "HookPrinter SDK", please feel free to let us know, we will provide more assistance to you asap.

  • Built-in font rendering engine.
  • Handles any PDF compression and encryption.
  • Full control over margins and scaling.
  • Advanced rasterization engine for image printing.
  • Works perfectly on any kind of printer.
  • Reduced spool size and faster spooling.
  • Adheres strictly to pdf specification.
  • Standalone solution without outside dependencies.
  • Working with password protected PDF documents.
  • Custom print properties. Set page range, landscape, copies, resolution, scaling, print in color, paper size, source tray, collate, printer name or duplex. The below sample code demonstrates how to set those settings manually through your code.
  • Silent printing enables you to print out documents in the background without user intervention. The below code sample will print out the PDF document to your default printer with default settings.
  • Silent printing with already installed Adobe Reader. In case you would like to print using Adobe Reader for some specific document where our rendering doesn't meet your needs. The below sample code will invoke Adobe Reader in the background without being visible and print out the document.
