Printing should be one click away. but there are so many problems which make printing difficult if not impossible. RPM Remote Print Manager (RPM) has grown through the years from all the print problems our customers have brought to us. We are here to help you solve your printing problems.
RPM is our virtual printer product. Our customers have been using RPM for 20 years!
RPM as virtual printer
RPM does what you expect a virtual PDF printer to do, and more:
convert incoming print jobs to other formats, such as PDF, TIFF and PCL
save multiple documents into a single document
print the same job to multiple printers
in one pass, send to a printer and save to disk
print the same job multiple times, using separate paper trays
RPM as print server
RPM is implemented as a Windows print server. Its core capabilities include:
managing your print workflow
send print jobs to any Windows printer
send print jobs to any printer on your network using core Windows print protocols, or LPR, or direct with port 9100
archive print jobs to local folders, shared folders, or anywhere via FTP
run any local application on your print job
send your print job via email as an attachment or in the message body
RPM also provides extensive data editing, manipulation and translation.
Windows version support
RPM 6.1 supports these versions of Windows: Vista, 7, Server 2008 (including R2), Windows 8 and 8.1, Server 2012 (including R2), and Windows 10. Support for Windows XP and Server 2003 has been dropped, so we no longer test new RPM versions on these older versions of Windows.
Resolved string translation issue introduced in build 504 which causes a parsing issue if a backslash is found in search or replace strings, which is nearly everyone using regex.
Added additional diagnostic logging to dbpipe due to a customer having issues with it not starting.
Raw printing to printer setups using a class driver now works.
The RPM and QueueFolders diagnostic logs accumulated over time due to the same case sensitive glitch fixed in 220.127.116.118
If you have critical events when the UI starts, the form now appears automatically.
A customer reported that the copy to queue action failed if there was a data extraction transform in the same queue. This has been fixed.
We extensively refactored the way we add jobs to the database, and sped that process up considerably.
RPM now generates a critical event every 100,000 jobs.
Added exception handling to the device tester
Improved device tester log messages by adding the device ID
Resolved Text Markup to PDF issue where Windows 10 reports 'file not found' accessing the HKey_Current_User registry hive
Resolved issue parsing code page aliases
Fixed positional data extractions; empty lines in the source file was throwing off the line number logic
Text print logging now includes the printer name, which in some instances it did not
The device tester now includes a device name or path in more logs
Added database logic to remove devices, queues and such from the priorities table when they are removed in their respective tables
Corrected 'data size' in the new LPD module to be 'bytes expected' in most instances, since often we get extras
Fixed an impressive slowdown when trying to resolve a hostname from a computer which is not in DNS
New filtering functionality for the jobs list, user interface improvements, better file collision handling, and better filter program handling.
The latest update for RPM Remote Print Manager adds 2 new features, the Data Extraction Transform, and Dynamic Routing for Copy to Queue. The new features are only available in RPM Remote Print Manager Elite.
