Installing and Uninstalling Neevia docuPrinter SDK

 

Before installing and/or using this product, please make sure you carefully read the copyright notice and agree to all of its terms. If you have any questions about the licensing agreement, please feel free to call (954) 981.9252 or email sales@neevia.com.

 

If you are using an earlier version of Neevia docuPrinter SDK on your system, it is recommended that you uninstall it before installing Neevia docuPrinter SDK v6.5.

 

To install Neevia docuPrinter SDK:

 

If you already have docuPrinter LT, PRO or TSE installed on your computer:

download and save the http://neevia.com/prods/dpsdk.exe file to your hard disk. After downloading the file, double-click it and follow the instructions. The installation procedure automatically detects your operating system, copies the needed files to your system directory and installs Neevia docuPrinter SDK.

 

If you don’t have docuPrinter LT, PRO or TSE installed on your computer:

download and install one of the above products then download and save the http://neevia.com/prods/dpsdk.exe file to your hard disk. After that double-click on it and follow the instructions. The installation procedure automatically detects your operating system, copies the needed files to your system directory and installs Neevia docuPrinter SDK.

 

Unattended installation:

To perform an unattended (silent) installation launch docuPrinter SDK installer with /sp- /verysilent /norestart command line switches. Here is the full list of supported switches:

 

/SP-

Disables the "This will install... Do you wish to continue?" prompt at the beginning of Setup.

 

/SILENT, /VERYSILENT

Instructs Setup to be silent or very silent. When Setup is silent the wizard and the background window are not displayed but the installation progress window is. When a setup is very silent this installation progress window is not displayed. Everything else is normal so for example error messages during installation are displayed and the startup prompt is (if you haven't disabled it with '/SP-' command line option explained above). If a restart is necessary and the '/NORESTART' command isn't used (see below) and Setup is silent, it will display a “Reboot now?” dialog. If it's very silent it will reboot without asking.

 

/NOCANCEL

Prevents the user from canceling during the installation process, by disabling the Cancel button and ignoring clicks on the close button. Useful along with /SILENT.

 

/NORESTART

Instructs Setup not to reboot even if it's necessary.

 

/DIR="x:\dirname"

Overrides the default directory name displayed on the Select Destination Directory wizard page. A fully qualified pathname must be specified.


/GROUP="folder name"

Overrides the default folder name displayed on the Select Start Menu Folder wizard page.

 

/user="username", /company="company name", /serial="serial number"

Use these switches to pass the registration info (username, company name and serial number) to the installer.


To remove Neevia docuPrinter SDK from your system:

 

1. Select Settings -> Control Panel from the Start menu.

 

2. In the Control Panel click Add/Remove programs and select docuPrinter SDK from the list.

 

3. Click the Add/Remove button to remove the program.

 

A confirmation prompt is displayed.

 

 

Unattended uninstall:

To perform an unattended (silent) uninstall, launch unins000.exe from the folder where docuPrinter SDK has been installed, with /verysilent /norestart command line switches. Here is the full list of supported switches:

 

/SILENT, /VERYSILENT

When specified, the uninstaller will not ask the user for startup confirmation or display a message stating that uninstall is complete. Shared files that are no longer in use are deleted automatically without prompting. Any critical error messages will still be shown on the screen. When '/VERYSILENT' is specified, the uninstallation progress window is not displayed. If a restart is necessary and the '/NORESTART' command isn't used (see below) and '/VERYSILENT' is specified, the uninstaller will reboot without asking.

 

/NORESTART

Instructs the uninstaller not to reboot even if it's necessary.

Syntax

    DPSDK.OptimizePDFfor = value

 

Data type: String

Note: Will have effect only if DocumentOutputFormat="PDF".

For your convenience there are several sets of predefined settings for creating PDF files.

These settings are designed to balance file size with quality, depending on how the PDF file will to be used:

 

• default - is intended to be useful across a wide variety of uses, possibly at the expense of a larger output file. All color and grayscale images are downsampled at 72 dpi, monochrome images at 300 dpi; subsets of all fonts used in the file are embedded; and all information is compressed. PDF files created using this setting are compatible with Acrobat 4.0 (and later).

• screen - is for PDF files that will be displayed on the World Wide Web or an intranet, or that will be distributed through an e-mail system for on-screen viewing. This set of options uses compression, downsampling, and a relatively low resolution; converts all colors to RGB; maintains compatibility with Acrobat 3.0; to create a PDF file that is as small as possible.

 

• printer - is for PDF files that are intended for desktop printers, digital copiers, publishing on a CD-ROM, or to send to a client as a publishing proof. In this set of options, file size is still important, but it is not the only objective. This set of options uses compression and downsampling to keep the file size down, tags everything for color management, and prints to a medium resolution to create a reasonably accurate rendition of the original document.

 

• prepress - is for PDF files that will be printed as high-quality final output to an imagesetter or platesetter, for example. In this case, file size is not a consideration. The objective is to maintain all the information in a PDF file that a commercial printer or service bureau will need to print the document correctly. This set of options downsamples color and grayscale images at 300 dpi, monochrome images at 1200 dpi, embeds subsets of all fonts used in the file, prints to a higher resolution, and uses other settings to preserve the maximum amount of information about the original document.

 

 

PDFLinearized

MaxInlineImageSize

Specifies the maximum size of an inline image in bytes.

Default value: 4000

 

Syntax

   DPSDK.MaxInlineImageSize = value

 

Data type: Integer

For images larger than this size, docuPrinter will create a XObject instead of embedding the image into the context stream. Note that redundant inline images must be embedded each time they occur in the document, while multiple references can be made to a single XObject image. Therefore it may be advantageous to set a small or zero value if the source document is expected to contain multiple identical images, reducing the size of the generated PDF.


ColorImageDownsampleType

Sets the color images downsample algorithm.

Possible values: "Bicubic", "Average", "Subsample".

 

Syntax

    DPSDK.ColorImageDownsampleType = value

 

Data type: String

Note: Will have effect only if DocumentOutputFormat="PDF" and DownsampleColorImages=true.

To resample color, grayscale, or monochrome images, docuPrinter combines pixels in a sample area to make one larger pixel.

 

You provide the resolution of your output device in dots per inch (dpi) and select the resample algorithm: 

 

Average Downsample – this algorithm averages the pixels in a sample area and replaces the entire area with the average pixel color at the specified resolution.

 

Subsample – this algorithm chooses a pixel in the center of the sample area and replaces the entire area with that pixel at the specified resolution. Subsample significantly reduces the conversion time compared with downsampling but results in images that are less smooth and continuous.

 

Bicubic Downsample – this algorithm uses a weighted average to determine pixel color and usually yields better results than the simple averaging method of downsampling. Bicubic is the slowest but most precise method, resulting in the smoothest tonal gradations.

 

 

GrayImageDownsampleType

Sets the gray images downsample algorithm.

Possible values: "Bicubic", "Average", "Subsample".

 

Syntax

    DPSDK.GrayImageDownsampleType = value

 

Data type: String

Note: Will have effect only if DocumentOutputFormat="PDF" and DownsampleGrayImages=true.

 

 

MonoImageDownsampleType

Sets the monochrome images downsample algorithm.

Possible values: "Bicubic", "Average", "Subsample".

 

Syntax

    DPSDK.MonoImageDownsampleType = value

 

Data type: String

Note: Will have effect only if DocumentOutputFormat="PDF" and DownsampleMonoImages=true.

 

Resampling monochrome images can have unexpected viewing results, such as no image display. If this happens, turn off resampling and convert the file again. This problem is most likely to occur with subsample and least likely with bicubic downsample algorithm.

Data type: String


JPEGImageQuality

Sets the output document (JPEG) quality.

Possible values: 0 .. 100   (75 is recommended)

 

Syntax

   DPSDK.JPEGImageQuality = value

 

Data type: Long

Note: Will have effect only if DocumentOutputFormat="JPG" and will work with docuPrinter Pro and TSE.

JPEGImageQuality sets the output quality level according to the widely used IJG quality scale, which balances the extent of compression against the fidelity of the image when reconstituted. Lower values drop more information from the image to achieve higher compression, and therefore have lower quality when reconstituted.

This option controls the use of subsample antialiasing for text content. The subsampling box size should be 4 bits for optimum output, but smaller values can be used for faster rendering.

Possible Values: 0, 1, 2, 4

 

Syntax

   DPSDK.TextAplhaBits = value

 

Data type: Integer

Note: Will work with docuPrinter Pro and TSE.

 

 


GraphicsAplhaBits

This option controls the use of subsample antialiasing for graphics content. The subsampling box size should be 4 bits for optimum output, but smaller values can be used for faster rendering.

Possible Values: 0, 1, 2, 4

 

Syntax

   DPSDK.GraphicsAplhaBits = value

 

Data type: Integer

Note: Will work with docuPrinter Pro and TSE.

Note that because of the way antialiasing blends the edges of shapes into the background when they are drawn some files that rely on joining separate filled polygons together to cover an area may not render as expected with Graphics antialiasing at 2 or 4 bits. If you encounter strange lines within solid areas, try rendering that file again with Graphic antialiasing at 1 bit.

 

 

UseCIEColor

Specifies whether docuPrinter should remap the device-dependent color values through a CIE color space. This can improve the conversion of CMYK documents to RGB.

Possible Values: true, false

 

Syntax

   DPSDK.UseCIEColor = value

 

Data type: Boolean

Note: Will work with docuPrinter Pro and TSE.

 

 

Interpolate

Specifies whether docuPrinter should use image interpolation. Enabling image interpolation will result in higher quality for scaled images at the expense of speed.

Possible Values: true, false

 

Syntax

   DPSDK.Interpolate = value

 

Data type: Boolean

Note: Will work with docuPrinter Pro and TSE.

 

 

UseWTS

Specifies whether Well Tempered Screening algorithm should be used for halftoning.

Possible Values: true, false

 

Syntax

   DPSDK.UseWTS = value

 

Data type: Boolean

Note: Will work with docuPrinter Pro and TSE.

If true, then the Well Tempered Screening algorithm is used for halftoning. Otherwise, a rational tangent algorithm is chosen, which will typically result in significant differences between the screen angle and ruling requested, and actually rendered. Currently, the performance of WTS is reasonably good when rendering to a full page buffer, but not optimized for banded mode.

 

 


FileMask

When printing documents that have more than 1 page, docuPrinter will produce an image file for each page of the original document. The FileMask allows you to control how the single page files will be named - if you set %d docuPrinter will add the page number to the file name. You can also control the number of digits used in the file name by replacing %d with %0Nd where N is the number of digits you want to have, for example %03d will force docuPrinter to produce files with names like this:  'filename001.tif', ... , 'filename010.tif', ...  %04d will produce:  'filename0001.tif', ... , 'filename0010.tif', ...

 

Syntax

   DPSDK.FileMask = value

 

Example

   DPSDK.FileMask = “%d”

 

Data type: String

Note: Will work with docuPrinter Pro and TSE.

    Res = DPSDK.RestoreSettings

 

Remarks

   Res<>0 on error.

 

 

ApplySettings

Applies the settings to the docuPrinter.

 

Syntax

    Res = DPSDK.ApplySettings

 

Remarks

   Res<>0 on error.

 

 

Create

Call this method to create the output document.

 

Syntax

    Res = DPSDK.Create(timeOut)

 

Parameters

    timeOut – Optional. Document creation timeout (in seconds) - if the output document is not created within the specified timeout period, Create will throw an error.

 

Remarks

   Res<>0 on error.

 

 

TrueTypeFontDownloadOption

Sets the docuPrinter TrueType font download option.

Possible values:

0 – default

1 – download as outline
2 – download as bitmap
3 – download as native TrueType

 

Syntax
