How to silently capture what is printed as a PDF file?

Hello,

I am trying docPrint Pro v8 in order to archive the following:

1. Silently capture what is printed as a PDF file.

2. Produce a text file for every page printed.

My question is how I can make docPrint Pro operation silent? That is, I don't want the user to have to click on various dialogs that pop up through the process.

Also, I want the generation of the text file to be silent as well without having the user to start the PDF tools. Are all these possible?

Also, is there a way to capture specific information of the printed page contents in text form, instead of capturing the whole page contents?

Thanks,
Customer

Yes, you can set options in docPrint Pro v8.0 to create PDF files silently, after you install docPrint Pro v8.0 application, please run following command line to configure options for automatic PDF creation,

"C:\Program Files (x86)\docPrint Pro v8.0\artprint.exe" -forward-options

You can choose "Save documents as PDF" option in the setting dialog, check the "Extract to text files" option also, click "Save&Close" button to close the setting dialog.

Now, you can print a document to docPrint printer, you will get PDF file and text file be created in the predefined folder.

You can also run following command line to set options to "docPrint PDF Driver" printer,

"C:\Program Files (x86)\docPrint Pro v8.0\psdriver\pdfconfiggui.exe"

image

In the setting dialog, you can select "Auto Save" options and select a folder for PDF generation, click "Save&Close" button to close the setting dialog. After that, please print a document to "docPrint PDF Driver" printer, you will get PDF file automatically.

HookPrinter couldn't generate FP000XX.SPL files. How to capture print jobs from Windows Printer or Spooling System?

As title, I download free trial version and install it on my windows 10 64bit.
When I print a file, there isn't FP000XX.SPL in temp folder, I only get these logs.

[2019-07-05 11:36:40][PID:22856][WINWORD.EXE] [PrnModule] Callback EndDocCallback, FindAndCopy: C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS\*.shd, found 0 files.
[2019-07-05 11:36:40][PID:22856][WINWORD.EXE] [PrnModule] >

Would you kindly give me some help? I will test it and buy a license later.

BTW, I installed it(install64.bat) with administrator privilege

Both network printer & local [Microsoft Print to PDF] not worked.

Customer
-------------------------------------------------------------------
We suggest you may run MS Word application, open a Word document, print it to a local or network printer to try again, can you see FP000XX.SPL files in temp folder and correct log information?

VeryPDF
-------------------------------------------------------------------
It can't work with network printer.

I tested again with local printer, it works, the SPL files were generated.
BUT, we couldn't convert it into pdf by your spl2pdf.exe.
Attachment is sample.

Customer
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Use VeryPDF Virtual Printer Driver to capture print jobs, save print jobs to database, PDF, JPG, PNG, TIFF, etc. formats, or forward print jobs to other printers automatically.

image

-------------------------------------------------------------------

I have checked your SPL file, this SPL file is the ZIMF format, our spl2pdf.exe doesn't support ZIMF format yet, so it can't convert from ZIMF format to PDF file, sorry for this problem.

btw, may I know your detailed requirements? do you want to install a virtual printer and then capture all printed jobs?

We suggest you may download a "EMF/PDF/Image Virtual Printer Driver SDK for Windows" from this web page to try again,

https://veryutils.com/emf-pdf-image-virtual-printer-driver-sdk
https://veryutils.com/dl.php/PDF-Printer-Driver-x64-Unidrv.zip

With this virtual printer, you will get following functions,

1. You can install a virtual printer into your system first,
2. You can set following options to this virtual printer,
--- Convert all print jobs to PDF files to a predefined folder.
--- Append all print jobs to a PDF file.
--- Forward all print jobs to another Windows Printer automatically.
--- and more functions to process print jobs.
3. You can print a document to this virtual printer, the Virtual Printer will save the print jobs to PDF files or forward them to another Windows Printer according to pre-configured options.

Will this "EMF/PDF/Image Virtual Printer Driver SDK for Windows" reach your requirements?

You may also download the trial version of "EMF/PDF/Image Virtual Printer Driver SDK for Windows" from VeryUtils.com website to try, if you encounter any problem, please feel free to let us know, we are glad to assist you asap.

btw, the HookPrinter SDK does able to hook the Network Printers, because the HookPrinter SDK does hook the entire Spooling System in Windows, so all print jobs which pass through the Windows spooling system will be captured automatically, but the captured SPL formats are controlled by original printer drivers, such as, Postscript printer will create PS SPL format, PCL printer will create PCL SPL format, and so on.

If you will use "EMF/PDF/Image Virtual Printer Driver SDK for Windows" to instead of HookPrinter SDK, you will not worry about unrecognized SPL formats, because "EMF/PDF/Image Virtual Printer Driver SDK for Windows" will save all print jobs to EMF SPL format first and then process them automatically.
