Print From Windows Services!
New Auto-print API, Improved PDF Printing and improved Redirect printing!
Black Ice Software has released the OEM Printer Driver version 13.98 with the API/Resource Toolkit. The updated Auto-print API enable developers to print MS Office Documents from Windows services. The Auto-print API can be executed under Windows 2012/2008 R2/ 2008 services to convert MS Office documents and Image file format such as TIFF, JPEG, PNG, etc.
The Auto-print service can run under the "Administrator" account instead of under a particular user or System Account. This allows the Auto-print service to continue the document conversion even after the current user is logs off in unattended mode. The base requirement is for MS Office 2013, 2010, or 2007 to be installed on the server.
