Autoit - bulk print pdfs

6 posts in this topic

Hi Guys

I'm trying to workaround a problem by bulk printing a bunch of documents. They are in PDF format and I have managed to dig out a list of them from a database.

Is it possible to automate the printing part using something like pdf creator? If so, any pointers?

Thanks

If you have Acobat Reader installed you can use command line switches to print a file:

"Print a PDF file silently:

AcroRd32.exe /N /T PdfFile PrinterName [ PrinterDriver [ PrinterPort ] ]"

Thanks. This looks useful.

I can do it for a single print but it complains when trying to print via batch file.

AcroRd32.exe /N /T "c:pdfpds1.pdf" myprinter

AcroRd32.exe /N /T "c:pdfpdf2.pdf" myprinter

c:program files.........acrord32.exe is not a valid win32 application.

Using a program with defined parameters shouldn't break it.
