Printing using a DOS command.

Post by simon.spellman »


I'm trying to set up bullzip so that I can run print process from a doss command that can be executed by another application.

I've had relative success in that i have mapped the printer to lpt1 and it will try to print useing the print dos command.
Problem is it starts to glitch when it trys to print and the job just gets stuck in the print queue.

Is this something that might be possible to achieve with this programm? It's exactly the kind of thing we need but without its own shell command to print I can't think of another way than to run as a dos print command.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

I also cannot print to the Bullzip printer from the command line.

I'm using this syntax

print "c:\1.txt" /d:"Bullzip PDF Printer"

I receive the error;

Unable to initialize device Bullzip PDF Printer

I can print from notepad to Bullzip and also from bat files with no problem.
e.g. in a .bat file

notepad.exe /pt "c:\1.txt" "Bullzip PDF Printer"

Can anybody offer any help with printing from a command line?
