Running PDFCreator in Batch Mode - Scheduled task (not logged)


I’m trying to run pdf creator in batch mode, creating a scheduled task with the “run whether or not logged in” option checked. It works fine when I uncheck that option, but doesn’t work when checking this option. As this will be run in a server it doesn’t make sense to be logged on all the time.

After a lot of research I’ve come to this old thread (Scheduled task Windows 2008 R2) so it seems it’s a known problem, and I would like to know if:

A: We can expect this to work in the near future
B: There is any other solution to make this option work (maybe registered version?)

Thanks very much for your help.

Kind Regards.

Sorry, I forgot to add that I’m running it on Windows 2008 R2, and the batch is DOS based.

Thanks again for any help you can provide.


all versions of PDFCreator except PDFCreator Server always require a logged on user.
