setting default options with a vbscript

Post by ddnwolff » Thu Nov 21 2002

Is their a way to set printing preferences such as resolution, default document folder, and font embedding options with an installation script? We would like to do a silent install with certain options set.

Thanks in advance for your help

Yes you can do this. Mainly you need to call the different functions of CDintf from the VB script.

Here is a pseudocode that may be helpful:

Set cdintf = CreateObject( "cdintf.cdintf" ) 'to create the CDintf object

cdintf.PDFDriverInit ("My PDF Printer") ' to install a new printer

cdintf.DriverInit("My PDF Printer") ' to keep the printer

cdintf.SetResultuion = 600

cdintf.SetDefaultConfig() ' to be called after changing the settings

cdintf.DefaultFileName = "c:\temp\test.pdf"

'Appendix D of the manual "Amyuni PDF Converter.pdf" Contains all the
' options you can set from FileNameOptions.
cdintf.FileNameOptions = 1 + 3

If you need more information about this issue please contact

Hope this is helpful.
