I added this global.ini file to the same directory where gui.exe are located. Bullzip are then able to output pdf without any dialog.

global.ini
[PDF Printer]
DisableOptionDialog=yes
Output=R:\<basedocname>.pdf
ShowSaveAS=never
ShowSettings=never
ShowPDF=no
ConfirmOverwrite=no

Has anyone been able to get this to work as a shared network printer? I have added the global.ini with the contents:

[PDF Printer]
DisableOptionDialog=yes
Output=c:\PDF\<username>-<basedocname>.pdf
ShowSaveAS=never
ShowSettings=never
ShowPDF=no
ConfirmOverwrite=no

* all users have read/write on c:\pdf

It works as a user who is a member of the administrators group but not standard user. The TEMP directory when printing as a standard user is c:\windows\temp\bullzip\pdf printer. The postscript file is created and the port.log file shows the following:

Any ideas?

Re: Bullzip as shared network printer

Just resolved this issue on a 2003 server printing from a web based application. I copied the global.ini to C:\Documents and Settings\all users\Application Data\PDF Writer\Bullzip PDF Printer\ directory, and to the same directory for the user that submitts the jobs from the application. Not sure why but all users has another folder called Option Sets that I copied the file to as well just to be sure. Also make sure the destination folders rights are set to full for the users or everyone. I noticed on the server with the shared printer that in Task Manager the gui.exe was launching and never closing. Check and make sure you dont have any hung processes from previous jobs before you try again.

It will work as a shared network printer, just go it working this morning. Make sure and copy the global.ini to the all users folder indicated. The application I am using submits all the print jobs under the same username so I copied the global file to that user as well. Check your Task Manager for gui.exe and it will show which user is submitting the jobs, also make sure there are no hung instances of gui.exe. The destination folder needs to have everyone set to full rights, or a least the user that is submitting jobs.

The current version of the printer is not really meant to run as a shared printer. However, it is possible to run it as such. There are limitations in what you can do. You cannot have individual settings for different users, since it cannot read the settings.ini. It has to run with settings from a global.ini and you have to create settings in global.ini that will disable any dialogs.

Re: Bullzip as shared network printer

I suppose these days network printing is fully supported? Having problems though..

I'm trying to create shared pdf printer to server which can be accessed from client computer. Files should be created to specific folder on same server automatically without user interaction. Files are invoices, order confirmations and such.

I have installed bullzip pdf printer to 'server' (one computer in my network acting as file/printer server). Os windows 8 on all computers. I have configured all interaction disabled in settings.
Printing in server (locally) works fine, but when I try to print from client to shared printer, nothing prints out? Everything should be fine, I can open target folder (located on server) in explorer and create files.
I can access all the properties of printer and there is no errors visible.
Sometimes I can see the file printed in local print queue, but in server there is no files to be printed on this pdf printer.

Question about target folder, if you set the folder on shared printer C:\temp\ - would it be local folder on client computer or does it mean the specific folder on machine where printer is installed?
This should be not the problem in my case since all machines have R:\ -letter indicating to same folder, just asking out of curiosity.

I have tried to create this simple function this with other pdf creators with similar problems, any help highly appreciated.
