I need your advice!
I want to print a PDF from a SBS2008 periodical once a day.
The PDF is created by another application and saved in a local folder.
This little "printservice" has to run in background with no user activity an also with no user logged into the machine.
I wrote a batchfile and configured the taskplaner to execute it.
but that doesnt work with no user logged into the machine.
so i thought i need a custom service and created one with srvany.exe
i modified the batch to an infinite loop
but that didnt work either.
This is my batchfile:
start runas /profile /savecred /user:email@example.com "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe /p /h c:\test\Test.pdf"
@time /T>> c:\test\test.txt
timeout /T 300
Taskkill /F /IM acrord32.exe /T
I saw, that no printer is given as argument to AcroRd32 /p so i thought it only prints to the default printer. But there is no default printer, when no user is logged in. So I tried runas with no effect.
I googled a bit an read somthing about missing rights. But I dont really understand that.
Can anybody give me an advice?
Thanks in advance
