BioPDF/BullZip PDF

03/06/2020 381 views

I am trying to figure out vbs function that will prompt the user to type in their name (first /last) on our public computers that uses shared biopdf printer.

Our Public systems autologin to the same username so that would defeat the purpose of using username, we were able to get the computername.

Right now when the pdf is generated - printed the title of document includes the following computername-smarttitle-time -date .

Option is to have vbs function results posted in the title of pdf, just havent figured out how to have the function open on the client prior to printing the document for the user to input their name something like this..

Joe Smoe BR549x1 Testing PDf Printing 11:20:33 03.06.2020 as the title of the pdf printed.

Why do you need the user to enter their name? Why not simply divine it? Any number of options there...getting the USERNAME variable from the environment (simple but nasty) or - better - find the owner of the EXPLORER.EXE process.

  • Hey VBSCab, was meaning to send you this link a life time ago. Its a link to a ancient version of InstallShield Repackager. Thought it might be handy for people you help out in packaging questions that need a alt to AppDeploy Repackager.

    The link is near the text "AdminStudio, team members can download a zero-footprint repackager"


    Hope all is well.


This will help the Customer Service from opening each document and keep the public user from remembering which computer they used.

"username" will be pulled from the computer,  "username" which the same with all public computers.
