windows 7 batch file error 0x00000c

Posted 11 January 2012 - 11:56 AM

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /if /b "NWEmbosser" /f %windir%\inf\ntprint.inf /r "lpt1:" /m "Generic / Text Only"
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /Sr /n NWEmbosser /a "%userprofile%\My Documents\Nemeth Worksheets\paper.dat"
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /Sr /n NWEmbosser /a "%userprofile%\My Documents\Nemeth Worksheets\port.dat"

This batch file is to run in combination with an installer for one of my programs to creates a generic printer called NWEmbosser. for the first line

second line loads a .dat file that changes the paper length

Third line is .dat file that changes the spooler

This works on windows xp and the only issue was a timing issue on windows xp

windows 7 gives error message 0x0000c can not find exe and it still make the generic printer before error message

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Are those the correct paths to paper.dat and port.dat?

Also, you are missing a flag after the .dat files. When you use the /Sr it requires a flag so the OS knows what to change, use one of the following letters/numbers.


c Color Profile
d PrinterData
s Security descriptor
g Global DevMode
m Minimal settings
u User DevMode
r Resolve name conflicts
f Force name
p Resolve port

If this still does not work, remember, Windows 6 is NOT like XP, try running the batch file as Admin, since normal users cannot add devices.
