Trying to suppress CREATE FILE dialog

Postby szlamany » Thu Mar 01, 2012 1:03 am

I'm using the Bullzip PDF Printer "driver" in .BAT files running an executable that outputs to the printer.

I setup the filename to be fixed at:

D:\ACS Desktop\AWC\reporting\staging\awcOutput.pdf

And to suppress the dialog boxes - calling that OPTION SET "awcReport".

Now when I start one of my .BAT files it runs the executable to create the report - but when it's done it pops up a "Bullzip PDF Printer - Create File" dialog box.

It's got the correct filename that I set as the fixed name - but I do not want this popup.

How do I suppress it??

It looks like this

CD /D C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\AWC\reporting
set path=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\AWC\reporting
amcReport rpt/~sproc=rptMonthly/~output=Bullzip PDF Printer/~cleanup=00000000000000000009/~p1=Sara/~p2=01/01/2012/~p3=/~p4=Y

Simply runs an old VB6 application we created that uses the VB6 PRINTER object set to this printer

Bullzip PDF Printer

Which does it's job of directing the output to Bullzip - but when the vb6 .exe finishes the CREATE FILE dialog pops up.

This pop-up also causes the file to not make it to the OUTPUT folder immediately - and this VB6 app is followed by a cleanup app that wants to move and rename the pdf file

Thanks for your help!

Hi guys,

I'm struggling with the same issue now. I need a way to avoid displaying this "Create File" dialog badly. Settings for PDF Printer don't seem to work at all.
