Printer Not Seen By Maestro Follow
we are working on a project to manage printing of labels from our homemade labeling management application using BarTender Commander with socket+BTXML. The printing part works great but I cannot manage to have the printer status for the job. I only receive jobCompleted="false" and LastJobStatus="Creating".
I've seen that I must use printer maestro for commander to be able to retrive printer status and send it back through the socket.
So i did it and followed those posts for configuration :
The first problem I have is that I cannot access the status monitoring tool option of the driver when the printer is installed with Ethernet because the button is disabled.
This will be a problem for us because all printers are installed with Ethernet in the factory (we use CUPS and .prn files at the moment)
I tryed to have it work via USB anyway but still I'm having troubles.
With USB I could follow instruction and setup all as required in previous posts but Printer Maestro does not see my printer, then I have no monitoring on it and commander cannot send the job status back.
My configuration is :
- windows 7 enterprise 64 bit
- Bartender full trial suite (we plan on using Enterprise Automation edition) Commander and Maestro are started on the same host the printer is connected to
- printer is a Toshiba B-EV4T
Can you please help me solve this problem ? I must have it work with Ethernet, any workaround allowing to know if the print job completed successfully will be OK.
