in reply to Printing PDFs as a windows service

stephanm,

The folks at $work tried something similar to this (sans Perl, sadly), and, well, the results left something to be desired. One thing we found (and maybe this is what you're running into), is that the user profile that is going to run Acrobat Reader must have the "LocalLow" ({user-home}\AppData\LocalLow) directory created.

I wonder if something like GhostScript wouldn't work better from a non-interactive standpoint? I haven't tried it, personally.

Best of luck,

[ambrus]: choroba: and for perlmonks (but not for everything2), you don't even need a cookie, you can just send a username and password parameter in every request, and this is even documented in What XML generators are currently available on PerlMonks?
[holli]: i admire you choroba, if i had to work at such a place, i wouldn't last long. as bosses don't like if someone calls them clueless idiots
[ambrus]: (The cookie format is not documented anywhere afaik, but it's trivial to reverse engineer even without being a pmdev.)
[holli]: or "ignorant bricks" (that is not a typo)
[choroba]: holli The money wasn't bad :-)
[choroba]: Discipulus Try changing the URL constants to something else
