Go to the Control Panel > Devices and Printers > right-click on the Black Ice Printer Driver > Printing Preferences > File Formats tab > Enable the Generate output in memory option.
Use the “Generate output in memory” option to generate a PDF file in memory instead of creating a file on the disk. The printer driver creates the file in memory and then passes the data to an application, through the messaging interface, which can save the PDF in a database or process the PDF in memory. To capture the generated output file in memory, one can use the Print to Memory Samples in the Printer Driver Resource Toolkit.
