Suppressing .msg & .cfg file


Recommended Posts

I am using a hotfolder based workflow where when I Compose, the output files are being saved to my printers hotfolder (as PDF). Is there anyway to suppress the .msg & .cfg file or otherwise save them to a different location than the output files? My printer is seeing them as print jobs and running them in line with the output files.

If you're running FusionPro VDP Producer API (FP Server), then you can set the "PrinterHotFolder" setting in the CFG file, and the output will be copied to the specified folder, without the .msg file.


If you're running FusionPro VDP Producer (FP Direct), then you can set the Printer Hot Folder in the FusionPro VDP Producer Configuration app.


If you're running Fusion Pro VDP Creator (FP Desktop), and just composing directly in Acrobat, then you can't automate this process, but you can call FusionPro.Composition.OpenNewOutputFile with a new path in OnJobStart or OnRecordStart to redirect the output file to a different folder than the base output location where the .msg file is written.
