CONFIG (console app)
Most printer drivers (for physical and virtual devices) make it rather difficult to change port or "advanced properties" on the fly. If you want to change the Output format from "B/W Group 4-1 Strip" to "24-bit Color Packbits" in our Informatik Image Driver, you have to go to one of the "printer" dialogs and click "Advanced", then set the choosen Format. In order to allow these changes in batch processes (*.CMD samples included in the free download), CONFIG.EXE (a console app) has been developed.
To install: unzip and put in a directory which can be "seen"(compiled as C++ under VS 2008).
REMPRN (GUI NT-2K-2003-XP-VISTA-WINDOWS 7)
When you install a driver, the system saves files to specifical directories and makes new entries in the registry. When using the driver, the registry entries may be modified and the files could be copied to other directories. It is generally assumed that the Delete function in the Printer Control Panel would remove all the files connected with the driver and deletes the registry entries which are no more needed. This is not the case. The Delete option in the Printer Control Panel does not perform a complete "clean up". This is easy to verify. After using the Delete option you will find files and registry entries using the Search functions. The Delete function hence leaves residual files that can potentially impair the proper installation and function of other drivers. It is important that drivers are un-installed in a systematic and meticulous fashion. It is also essential that the system be re-booted after the removal of drivers. The only way to achieve a clean removal of printer drivers, is with Informatik's REMPRN utility. The Remprn utility searches the complete Windows Registry for associated files and properly removes all files and entries that are exclusively used by the driver, leaving you with a clean Windows Registry. When it is necessary, Remprn also prompts you to restart Windows.
