EndPrint has two major features:
- The ability to alert you when the Print Manager
is finished printing
- The ability to close the Print Manager when it
is finished printing
- Version 1.00 [February 1, 1992]
To install EndPrint, you must run the EndPrint Setup program,
prsetup.exe. EndPrint Setup renames printman.exe file that comes
with Windows to p.exe and writes a new printman.exe to your Windows
Windows will run the new printman.exe instead of the old one.
When the new printman.exe is run, it will automatically run the
Windows Print Manager (now p.exe); when the Windows Print Manager
is finished, depending on the options you have selected,
EndPrint will close the Print Manager and/or beep to alert you
that the Print Manager has finished printing. EndPrint will then
close itself, so that it will not use up memory.
Note that EndPrint does not replace the Print Manager.
The files must be kept in the Windows directory or in your PATH,
otherwise Windows will not be able to find them correctly.
After the setup program has installed EndPrint, it will bring up
EndPrint's Configuration dialog box, allowing you to specify
whether you want the program to close the Print Manager when it
has finished printing and/or beep to alert you that it has finished.
Running the Windows Print Manager
If you want to run the Windows Print Manager directly after
EndPrint has been installed, you have several options:
- From the Program Manager, select File... Run... and type
in P.EXE and select OK.
- From the Program Manager, select the Print Manager icon.
Select File... Properties.... Select Run Minimized. Select OK.
Double click (or press Enter) on the Print Manager icon in
the Program Manager.
EndPrint may be given to others as long as all of its files
