"C:\Program Files\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" –i C:\TEST.odt –o C:\test.pcx

–i C:\TEST.odt is the path of source file.
–o C:\test.pcx is the path of target file.
Please don’t forget to add “-i” and “-o” before the source file path and target file path. If you don’t want to input the long file path into MS-DOS prompt window, you can drag the file into the window directly. But you have to specify the output file path yourself.
