Printer configuration search path

170 Views, 1 Replies

I need to set the Printer Configuration Search Path and the Plot Style Table Search Path. Currently I am using COM but the issue I have is that I need to run the same application on 2 different machines, one has only Autocad 2010 (xp-32bit), the other has both Autocad 2010 and Autocad 2012(win7-64bit) and I've got some difficulty to have it running.


Can I set those paths without using COM?


Thanks for your help.

you may read the values from the registry (within the active profile).

The other option would be to use COM-access with the reflection-methods as Hallex showed it >>>here<<<, that makes it possible to use COM without need to reference the ActiveX components/interfaces (activation of late-binding is then necessary I think)
