DWG TrueView batch plotting to PDF using Scripts

                Some advice please. I have a script that we use for batch plotting to PDF. I then have a shortcut that opens DWGTrueView and runs the script, opening all the drawings in turn and printing to PDF. This has been working successfully for the past week and I have created thousands with no bother. However, yesterday TrueView decided that  it no longer recognizes the switches as part of the shortcut. A window appears upon actioning the shortcut. It opens TrueView then stops at this point.


Ignoring unknown switches: /p <<ACADMPP>>:  Improper drawing name. Regenerating model.






The target for the shortcut is as below;

"C:\Program Files\Autodesk\DWG TrueView 2012\dwgviewr.exe" /p <<ACADMPP>> /b "C:\Users\user directory\Documents\PDF TrueView.scr"


As mentioned, I haven't amended this, it was working successfully, now it is not. I have tried to re-install TrueView, when this made no difference, I uninstalled and re-installed and still no success.


I wondered whether TrueView uses different profiles to normal AutoCAD, but as I mentioned this was working before!


Any help would be much appreciated.


Thanks in advance.
