PLM Print Batch Utility

I'm struggling to set this up, should be easy right?


Preferences ->Legacy Preferences

General ) So in CATIA I added a new 3DS Virtual Printer for Print to PDF.

General  -> Compatibility ) I set the compatibility Properties and Parameters for PDF

PDF1.6 and All Sheets


Then, from Utilities I launched the PLMPrintBatch set the printer o the new 3DS Virtual printer, selected the files i wanted to print but it wont print


I've noticed the submission scripts wont stay set to default, they want to swap to custom and i dont know why


%CATOUT% does not seem to be set

Runtime Script

rem Default:C:\Users\MARC~1.JEE\AppData\Local\Temp\catout.out
set CATOUT=C:\Users\MARC~1.JEE\AppData\Local\Temp\catout.out


 execution script

rem Default:Microsoft Print to PDF
if exist "%CATOUT%" copy /b %CATOUT% PORTPROMPT:
if not exist "%CATOUT%" echo "The file %CATOUT% doesn't exist."



C:\Users\marc.jeeves\AppData\Local\DassaultSystemes\CATTemp\R422\Nikola\SVE>rem Default:Microsoft Print to PDF

C:\Users\marc.jeeves\AppData\Local\DassaultSystemes\CATTemp\R422\Nikola\SVE>if exist "C:\Users\MARC~1.JEE\AppData\Local\Temp\catout.out" copy /b C:\Users\MARC~1.JEE\AppData\Local\Temp\catout.out PORTPROMPT:
"PORTPROMPT:" is not a recognized device.
The system cannot find the file specified.

C:\Users\marc.jeeves\AppData\Local\DassaultSystemes\CATTemp\R422\Nikola\SVE>if not exist "C:\Users\MARC~1.JEE\AppData\Local\Temp\catout.out" echo "The file C:\Users\MARC~1.JEE\AppData\Local\Temp\catout.out doesn't exist."
CATPrintBatchUtility : PN00551800A.1 active image document printed




I did this so the PLMBatchPrint would not keep asking me for the file name of each pdf its printing


Can anybody help
