Autoprinting a PDF


Trying to print a PDF from a batch file using PDF Creator.
I want to choose a profile from PDF creator to pick up the printer stored against it. My batch file is as follows:

Start C:“Program Files”\PDFCreator\PDFCreator.exe /PrintFile=“C:\Users\nick\Desktop\Shelf-01.pdf” /PrinterName=“PDFCreator” /Profile=“Profile1”

Doesn’t seem to work - can anyone see what is wrong?




the /PrintFile parameter relies on finding a correctly registered “print to” shell verb / command for the file type which you’d like to convert from. Please try using /PdfFile instead, this will directly convert the PDF instead of sending it through the virtual printer and doesn’t rely on any Windows registry settings.

Best regards



Hi Robin.
Thanks for your reply and sorry for the delay in replying.
I’ve tried this:
Start C:“Program Files”\PDFCreator\PDFCreator.exe /PdfFile=“y:\Printed\ToPrint.pdf” /PrinterName=“PDFCreator” /Profile=“Shelf01”
(also tried without /PrinterName=“PDFCreator” )
Nothing prints… any thoughts?
