Hi sherif60,
> photoed.exe
7th April 2002
Jpeg files never print
Microsoft's Photo Editor is the default associated program for printing JPEG files by default, but with some versions of windows it hangs when you right click on a file and click print, Batch & Print Pro uses the associated program to print in a controlled manner, to resolve this do the following:
In My Computer click Tools --> Folder Options --> File Types
look for JPEG, then click Advanced button, select the "Print" Action and click edit button.
it will probably read: "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\PhotoEd\PHOTOED.EXE" /p "%1"
if you are using NT then change that line to: "C:\WINNT\System32\mspaint.exe" /p "%1"
if you are not using NT then you will have to browse for the path to find mspaint on your system.
