Thin Client/WindX / Re: Printing from Application Server
« on: August 22, 2018, 12:32:33 PM »
James -
Thanks for your prompt reply.
Yes, you are correct.  The App Server IS running under Windows.
But when I tried your suggestion, I got
OPEN (1)"[lcl]*winprnt*"
Error #61: Authorization failure

I tried starting WindX as Administrator, but that didn't change anything.

Also note that the printer I want to use is sitting on my desk (rather than connected to the system that is running App Server (which is in another state.))  Does Providex consider my printer a 'local' printer?  Or are local printers ones that are known to the server running the App Server.

Thanks again for your help.

Thin Client/WindX / Printing from Application Server
« on: August 22, 2018, 12:07:39 PM »
I'm trying to print something on my local printer from a Providex session running under Application Server in a remote location.
I thought I could just
OPEN (1) "*winprt*"
to get a Windows pop up window that would allow me to select a printer known to my Windows system.
But nothing comes up.  It just accepts the command.  If I
it replies "*winprt*"
What am I doing wrong?

I am starting Windx using the following target:
"C:\PVX Plus Technologies\Windx Plugin 2017\pxplus.exe" -mn "*client" -ARG "x.x.x.x" 10020 DMIAPP -ka -ssl

My application works well, except that I need to know how to print.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Programming / Utility to extract text from .rtf files?
« on: July 24, 2018, 12:54:04 PM »
I have a client who is receiving files in .rtf format.  I need to extract the plain text from the file (without any formatting information.)  I found a VERY old (20+ years?) specification of .rtf syntax (Rev 1.5) and tried to use its basic formatting rules to filter out formatting and graphic information, but apparently newer features don't conform to the original syntax.

Does anyone have experience pulling text from .rtf files?  Just a reasonably recent specification of the .rtf format would probably be enough.  Or, if a utility already exists to do what I want, that would be great, too.  My client is running PxPlus under Linux.
