Printing PDFs as a windows serviceby stephanm (Sexton)
|on Jun 23, 2010 at 13:56 UTC||Need Help??|
stephanm has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to run a service on Vista that prints any pdf file dropped into a directory. The program works when started by hand.
When installed as service the print does not happen. I can see that AcroRd32 gets started but then hangs.
I assume that is because a GUI program cannot be run as service.
I also tried a printing alternativ found on this site:
Same problem - works when started manually - hangs when started as service.
Does anyone known a way to print PDFs w/o having to start any type of GUI application?
