Exact file naming, Conversion Profiles, Environment Variables, Auto save and more!

Black Ice Software has released the Auto-print SDK 14.16 including dozens of great new features and improvements!

Also included in the Auto-print SDK samples, users can specify the directories by using environment variables.
