We are running Automate 7.1.3.0 Professional. I am unable to execute the LPR command from the task builder. I have tried the LPR command on its own as well as by including it in the cmd.exe like cmd /k "LPR -S -P "

None of these work. I have even tried including the LPR in a batch file and executing the batch file.

I am however able to execute LPR from the command prompt.

Operating system is Windows Server 2008 64-bit.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Avtar

Avtar,
is the LPR the only command you cannot run ?
Does it work for other trivial commands like below ?
Notice that the quotes around the multi-word command are not necessary

Jean,

My colleague got it to work finally. We are running a 64-bit OS. We copied LPR.exe from Sustem32 folder to SysWOW64 folder and it works now.

Thanks,
Avtar
