AcuToweb Printing on the client

AcuToweb Printing on the client

We are having a difficult time printing to the acutoweb client.  We use the acubench report writer for all our reports. 

We have printed using acuthin, C$copy and acubenchprint.dll.  We really do not want to rewrite all our reports using C$PDF. 

We can use the acutoweb desktop but are having difficulty finding any information on how to print to the client.

Good morning, @tburlingtoon .

In order to print in AcuToWeb mode using acubenchprint.dll, you have to install the ATWDesktop tool on each Windows client.

Then copy your acubenchprint.dll to the tool directory on these clients.

Start ATWDesktop.

On the server, you can remap the CALLs to the print library by adding the following lines to your cblconfi:

AcuBenchPrint.DLL @[DISPLAY]:C:\ACUCOBOL-GT\10.3.0\AcuToWeb_Desktop\AcuBenchPrint.DLL
AcuBenchPrintDummy @[DISPLAY]:AcuBenchPrintDummy
AcuBenchPrintExecWBPreview @[DISPLAY]:AcuBenchPrintExecWBPreview
AcuBenchPrintExecWBPageSetup @[DISPLAY]:AcuBenchPrintExecWBPageSetup
AcuBenchPrintGetMargins @[DISPLAY]:AcuBenchPrintGetMargins
AcuBenchPrintGetPaperSize @[DISPLAY]:AcuBenchPrintGetPaperSize
AcuBenchPrintGetPaperName @[DISPLAY]:AcuBenchPrintGetPaperName
AcuBenchPrintGetOrientation @[DISPLAY]:AcuBenchPrintGetOrientation
AcuBenchPrintGetCopies @[DISPLAY]:AcuBenchPrintGetCopies
AcuBenchPrintGetPrinterName @[DISPLAY]:AcuBenchPrintGetPrinterName
AcuBenchPrintExecWBPrint @[DISPLAY]:AcuBenchPrintExecWBPrint

The print will be generated on the client, so it won't need to be C$COPYied from the server to the user's machine.

If you still have troubles, please contact, remembering to highlight the version of AcuToWeb you are using.

Looking forward for your feedback.

Thank you Claudio, we will give this a try this morning.
