  PRINT ASSOCIATIONS IN WINDOWS - UPDATED 24th August 2003

Batch & Print Enterprise uses windows print associations to automate the printing process by using the associated 3rd party program, e.g. When printing PDF's it uses Acrobat Reader to print the PDF, below is a list of some of the file types we've come across and what's best to use for that file type.

Please checkout our Batch & Print Enterprise Addon's for more integration and more specialized printing options with certain file types.
