Print DWF files from Windows Explorer

Do you want to print DWF files from Windows Explorer or be able to print using DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) from a document handling system?

I have made a simple freeware application that uses Autodesk DWF Viewer to do this and that can be used as a DDE Application. Select the DWF's you want to print, right click and select Print DWF. That's it. I hope it is useful for you.
You can download the setup file here.
The stability and functionality is as it is. It works good enough for me even though I cannot say that it will work for you. I have not added subclassing to the application. So if you select multiple DWF's, one instance of the program will be started for each DWF.
For the latest version see

    I am trying to automate the process of creating a PDF file from a DWF and sending it as an attachment. At the moment I'm working with your DWF Print and PDFCreator with the autosave option on(no user interaction).

    My project is in VB6.0, I was wondering if you had any advise knew of any other way of accomplishing this task?

    Hello, I have a question on your DWF Print application. First some background info. When you print from the DWF Viewer, there is an option to force geometry to black. when this option is selected, sometimes regions of the print are filled with black. When using your utility, the "black fill" anomaly ocurrs. Is there any way to get the source code or pass additional parameters to eliminate this "feature"? Thanks!
