Q. How can I cause the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer to print from the command-line?

I have scripted PrtWinPicFax.bat to cause the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer to print a file that you specify to a printer that you specify, from the command line. No GUI or popup is displayed.

The syntax for using PrtWinPicFax.bat is:

PrtWinPicFax File Printer

Where:

File    is the fully qualified file name that contains the image you wish to print.

Printer is the printer that will render the image, like any of the following:
                      "HP Officejet 6200 series"
                      \\JSI001\HP2250 
                      "\\JSI001.JSIINC.COM\HP Business Inkjet 2250 (PCL5C)"
PrtWinPicFax.bat contains:
@echo off
if \{%2\}==\{\} @echo Syntax: PrtWinPicFax File Printer&goto :EOF
rundll32.exe %SystemRoot%\System32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_PrintTo /pt %1 %2
