I would like to do either by a batch file or a vb script.

When you say autoprinting, do you mean "single click" automate, "scheduler" automate, "login" automate, or just print something when a user does something.


Yes a scheduler automate, the file will be on a server so I can setup a schedule task. I woukld like the rtf file to be printed at a set time to the default printer. Thanks.
If the printer is the default, then you can setup this command in the scheduler.  Wordpad will print any file, even if it's not associated with it.

WORDPAD /P <fname>.rtf
