How to get control of a printer driven by an executable program
Posted on 2004-08-12
An application (executable file) allows printing the results of user input. However, the app seems to use a temporary print file that doesn't get deleted after printing (and the next user gets the print from the original user.) We can make this work by manually deleting the printfile after each user but seems like a clumsy way to do things.
The printer is BJC 4400--looking at the manual I don't see any printer control codes available.
The app also uses Irfanview viewer (not embedded in the app so we could set some options there I think--but don't think this has anything to do with the printing).
Is there some way to start a batch file after each print to delete the temp print file? (I don't have access to the source code for the app.)
Or some other way to get this job done?
