  12 February 2017

This latest and the future release versions 6.02++
of AutoPrint now combine the desktop features of the former AutoPrint series 3.20 and the much more powerful print-channel system of our AutoPrint Professional versions into one application.
This allows a much faster adaption of user suggestions and development of future upgraded versions.

Solution: 

 

AutoPrint automatically batch prints nearly any printable file, including many standard bitmap graphic file types, if preferred without any
user interaction.

+ PDF documents are printed without the need of external applications
+ Send BMP, JPG, JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIF, TIFF (including multi-page) bitmap image files to any installed Windows-printer.
+ TXT LOG or similar raw text files are transferred through a Windows canvas.
+ Multiple standard page layout setups can be defined for each printer.
+ After successful output the input print-files are deleted automatically or saved in a user defined folder. 
+ AutoPrint runs as full-size application, minimized to the system tray or as an unattended Windows32 service (Professional license)
+ Optionally add watermarks and header or footer text lines, including page numbers, file names and more.
+ Access any shared printer within your LAN or WAN.
+ Print preview for graphic files including skip options
+ AutoPrint acts as a receiving host system for Android mobile devices.Install our
Photos-On-Air app and there is only one
   click left to show, store or instant-print your photos via WiFi.


How AutoPrint works: 
 
AutoPrint runs in the background on a local computer or on a central Windows server system. On any connected computer one or more special file folders are assigned. Each folder is dedicated as a input file container for one of these printers, multiple folders for one singular printer with different driver settings are also possible. Any of these folders may be defined as public share to make it accessible for file by any operating system within the local or remote network. 
Some user-application now sends a file to be printed (like Invoice.pdf or dosapp.prn) into one or more of these folders. 
AutoPrint will pick up these files and send them to the corresponding printer or screen and finally delete or store them.
If the storing destination leads to another pre-defined folder the files are led to the next printer and so on.

Text-files (*.txt) files are handled by AutoPrint directly.

Image-files (*.bmp, *.jpg, *jpeg, *.tif, *.tiff,  *.gif *.png) are processed and transferred by AutoPrint.

The printout of typical ASCII text-files (like *.bat, *.ini, *log) are printed with a font as choosen by the user. 

PDF-document-files are printed through an internal rendering engine without the need of any external application.

Raw print-files (like *.prn or any other) have to be built for a certain printer type. That means, the generating application has to deal printers internal language first!

There are 3 license options available:

AutoPrint Free

The unregistered version can be used for free without time restrictions. However, it stops its activity after each 25 print-outs, but the program can be started as often you like. Most of the features are enabled, which gives you the opportunety to thoroughly test AutoPrint before possibly upgrading to a higher license type.


AutoPrint Standard License (35 USD)

The program options after registering to the AutoPrint Standard license compare to the former AutoPrint 3.20 and earlier versions.
You will need one license for each computer.










AutoPrint Professional License (89 USD)

The program options after registering to the AutoPrint Professional license compare to the former AutoPrintPro line including an unlimited number of print-channels and the Windows service option..

You will need one license for each computer. If you install AutoPrint Professional on a network server also just one license is necessary.

Latest beta version:
From time to time you may be able to download the latest beta
version here.
If available this link is active and directed either to the ready compiled program file AutoPrint.exe or to a complete installation package. These file(s) may directly be copied over your existing installation. Make sure to have installed the full version first and quit its operation. A possible registration remains as is. Also the setup configuration is unaffected.
Anyway, we can not guaranty that a beta version would work as expected.
You may save the previous AutoPrint.exe-file in case you want to restore the old situation..
