Programmer’s Guide
The Noritsu Hot Folder is a software application that allows printing to QSS-28 series digital
printers (and above) from networked computers using the Noritsu NetOrder API. It is designed
for high production labs that do not wish to allocate resources in programming the NetOrder API.
Because the Hot Folder is script driven, programming is accomplished without the need for
extensive software development.
It is your responsibility to develop the necessary scripts to drive the Noritsu Hot Folder
application. the function of this guide is to give you the necessary information on what needs to
be included in the script, not how to create the script.

While the Noritsu Hot Folder application can handle images of any size up to the limitations of
the RAM and free HDD space on the server, each QSS printer has a maximum size limitations.
Sending an image file to a QSS printer that exceeds the printers capacity will cause errors.
Note:
Some QSS printers have additional restrictions. See “Restrictions” on page 24.

Software Installation and Configuration
Note:
At least ONE printer, other than a QSS printer, must be installed on the server before installing the Noritsu
Hot Folder application. The printer does not need to be physically present. Failure to have a printer listed will
cause the Noritsu Hot Folder to malfunction.
Software installation is accomplished by running Setup on the CD and following the screen
prompts. We suggest that you accept the default directory for the install. Once the software is
installed, you need to configure the application.
Noritsu Hot Folder License Authorization

are left for trial period.
Note: If you remove and re-install
Noritsu Hot Folder during the
trial period you will loose any
remaining days for that trail
period.
Noritsu Hot Folder must have an authorized licensed with Noritsu America Corporation in
order to work past the trial period.
When you are ready to purchase the application, contact the Noritsu America Corporation Hotline
then start Noritsu Hot Folder. When you see the message above, press the ENTER key and read
the Site Code to the technician. The technician will generate your Site Key and read it back to you.

Noritsu Hot Folder Configuration
Note:
Make sure that your network is up and all QSS printers you will use with Noritsu Hot Folder are on and
connected to the network before proceeding
1. Create a hot folder on the Server for each QSS printer that will receive images through Noritsu
Hot Folder.
Ex: C:\QSS29
2. Start the Noritsu Hot Folder application.
3. Click on Tools > Options and verify that the server card’s IP adapter address is present.
Note:
To check the IP address, click the Windows Start button, select Run then enter CMD. In the DOS
window enter ipconfig. Use the IP address for the adaptor that is connected to the QSS printer.
4. Click on File > Add Hot Folder to set up a tab (page) for the printer.
Note:
If this is the first printer you are setting up, you can skip step 4.
5. Click the Browse button next to the IP Address text box, select the QSS printer from the
Printer IP Address list and click OK. When you click OK, the printer tab on the main screen
shows the name of the printer.
Click Browse
Click Printer

Software Operation
The following steps describe what needs to be done for the Noritsu Hot Folder application to
operate.
Note:
Items 1 through 3 should be driven by a script or program. If you have more than one QSS printer listed in the
Noritsu Hot Folder application, the sub folder listed in step 1 below needs to be created in the appropriate
Noritsu Hot Folder.
Remember, each hot folder is specific to a particular QSS printer.
1. Create a sub folder under the hot folder with the extension .n (n = not ready for processing).
Ex: 1234.n
2. Create a text file named command.nhf (nhf = Noritsu Hot Folder) and place it plus the images
it references into the sub folder created in step 1. see “Command File” on page 13.
3. When step 2 completes, change the extension of the sub folder to .r (r = ready for processing).
Ex: 1234.r
Note:
The following items are automatically handled by the Noritsu Hot Folder application
4. The Noritsu Hot Folder application watches for .r folders in its registered hot folders. When it
sees a .r folder, it automatically starts processing the command file and sends the data to the
appropriate QSS printer.
5. After the data is sent to the QSS printer and the Noritsu Hot Folder application completes the
command file, the extension of the sub folder is changed to .q (q = queued in printer).
Ex: 1234.q

Reference
Command File
The command file is a plain-text files that contain information about the images you want to send
to the Noritsu printer. The command file structure follows the standard Windows .ini format and
contains two sections. Both sections begin with a section name enclosed in brackets [section name]
followed by keyname entries.
Note:
The command file MUST end with a blank line.
The command file is normally created at the originating workstation and sent to the appropriate
hot folder on the server. You can include comments in the file by preceding comments with a
semicolon (;).
Note:
Each image requires its own [Frame] section in the command file. For example, if a work order contains 4
images, there would be four [Frame] entries.
The format of the file is:
[Order]
keyname=value
keyname=value
keyname=value
[Frame]
keyname=value
keyname=value
keyname=value
[Frame]
keyname=value

BackPrint keynames (shown in the Command File and Image Setting tables below) can contain
codes to print specific information. For specific information on the codes and what they print on
the back of the prints, see “Back Print Codes” on page 17.

Response File
The response file, named result.log, is generated by Noritsu Hot Folder when it finishes
processing an order. If no location is specified in the command.nhf, the result.log is placed in the
same folder as the command.nhf file giving you results for each QSS printer. The result.log
contains the following:
First Line:
OrderNo= #
Order Number for the images processed through the command.nhf.
Second Line:
RefID= #
Reference Identification for the order.
Next Line(s):
FrameNo: # - Filename - Transmission Status
One line for each Image in the order. Contains the Image Frame Number, File
Name and the result of the transmission
• Success
• Partial (success)
• Failure
Next Line:
RefID: # - Set Order Status
QSS Set Order result that contains the Reference ID and the result of the Set
Order
Last Line:
RefID: # - Order State
Order state contains the Reference ID and the result of the Get Order State.
The get order state is displayed in both numeric value and text description
Note:
When no location is specified in the command.nhf, a result.log is overwritten when an order is sent to the same
QSS printer.
When a common location is specified in the command.nhf, the result.log is overwritten each time an order is sent
to any QSS printer.
Sample result.log
This sample result.log includes typical responses for three images:

Restrictions
dDP-411
1. The dDP-411 does not support paper fitting. This means images are printed at actual size only.
Example:
An image 1440 pixels wide (4 inches wide at 360 pixels per inch) is sent to the dDP-411. The
Command File specifies that the image should print 5 inches wide on the 5 inch wide paper.
However, because the image only prints at actual size, the image prints 4 inches wide on 5 inch
wide paper regardless of how paper fitting is specified in the command file (Crop, Shrink or
Real).
2. The dDP-411 can switch paper size regardless of the specified paper size in the Command File.
Example 1:
An image 2160 pixels wide (6 inches wide at 360 pixels per inch) is sent to the dDP-411 loaded
with both 5 and 12 inch paper. The Command File specifies that the image should print on the
5 inch wide paper. However, because the image only prints at actual size and the dDP-411 can
switch paper sizes, the image prints 6 inches wide on the 12 inch paper.
Example 2:
An image 1440 pixels wide (4 inches wide at 360 pixels per inch) is sent to the dDP-411 loaded
with both 5 and 12 inch paper. The Command File specifies that the image should print on the
12 inch wide paper. However, because the image only prints at actual size and the dDP-411 can
switch paper sizes, the image prints 4 inches wide on the 5 inch paper.
3. BMP files with a color depth of 24 bits are the only files the dDP-411 can print.
