Run Program

The Run Program action executes an external program, script or batch file. This is useful if you need some extra functionality that doesn’t exist in Print Distributor.

Run Program Properties

The Program property is the path to the executable, script or batch file. Parameters are the parameters passed to the program.

If you want to pass the raw print file as a parameter to the program then use the template variable PrintFilePath, you will need to surround this with quotations as it will almost certainly contain spaces.

"?? PrintFilePath ??"

Timeout is the number of seconds to wait for the program or script to complete. If you set this to -1 it will wait forever, set it to 0 to not wait at all.

Setting Minimised to true means the program will run in the taskbar but any windows will not be visible.
