your local KIP companies web site if this CD is not available, Please ensure Installer version is correct
for your KIP IPS system!)
System Requirements
Workstation operation systems can be:
Windows XP
Windows Vista
Windows 7
Administrator access is also required to install the software.

CD Installation
1. Locate the KIP Software CD and place in disk drive.
2. Browse CD for INSTALLATION and KIP Request.
3. Follow the prompts and select all defaults settings for easy of configuration.
First Time Run
After the software installation is complete, the application can be run from the
Desktop (icon shown) or from the “Start,” then “All Programs,” then “KIP
Programs,” KIP Request. It may take several minutes for the first time launch as it
attempts to find configured KIP devices. (see Connection to KIP Printers)
WINDOWS VISTA NOTE: In order for the KIP Request to work properly on Windows
Vista you need to install the KIP Request software as Admin. To do so right click
on the Request.exe and select Install as Admin. After it installs you MUST run it the first time as Admin
(right click on the Shortcut created and choose Run as Admin) this sets up the proper pathing. You
should then be able to use the software without issues.
If you are still having issues try turning off User Account Control (UAC). This is done in Control Pane
under User Accounts there you will find Turn Account Control on or off.
Windows 7 Note: In order for the KIP Request to work properly on Windows 7 it will need to be
installed as an Admin and compatibility mode will have to be set to “Run this program as and
administrator”. If there are still issues running KIP software, User Account Control (UAC) may have to
be adjusted.
Master Password
Upon starting Request for the first time it will ask for a MASTER PASSWORD. This password allows
access to the Prompt Settings (accounting) configurations. This password will be used by the
department manager or network administrator. Please key in a password noting that it will be
required in the future. Once set the password cannot be changed.

Printing DWF files
DWF (Design Web Format™) files offer a simple, secure way to share design data from AutoDesk.
Developed specifically for engineering design data, the DWF format is the best way to share 2D and 3D
design information, because the file size is smaller and faster to transmit than either native design file
formats or other alternatives. DWF files are print ready and maintain absolute data fidelity.
How are DWF’s created?
•
If you’re using AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, or other Autodesk applications, you can create DWF
files directly from the built-in “Publish” command within the application.
•
DWF files can also be created from any application using the Autodesk DWF Writer that ships with
Autodesk DWF Composer. Autodesk DWF Writer software enables you to publish to DWF format
from CAD applications that do not offer built-in DWF publishing, such as Bentley Microstation or

Dassault’s Solidworks software. Autodesk DWF Writer is a certified Microsoft Windows system
printer driver that enables you to quickly and easily convert files to DWF format.
•
If you’re NOT using AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, or other Autodesk applications, the Autodesk
DWG Viewer component that ships with DWF Composer allows for the full publishing capabilities
that are in AutoCAD 2006. This includes the ability to batch convert DWG files to DWF. Users simply
need to add DWG files in the Publish menu before Publishing the sheet set to a single DWF file
NOTE: Some DWF files created prior to 2004 may not be compatible.

Push File to IPS
This has been incorporated for ease of use for making file updates to the KIP internal controller. This
feature works with IP based printers only. Upon clicking this feature, the user is prompted with an
explorer window to choose and pick a file meant to be placed on the KIP controller. For example, if
the user was making an update to the IPS software with a new executable, one would select the file
at the ‘Requester’ workstation. Upon selecting and clicking ok, the new executable would be
copied into ‘C:\Monpath1\Installers on the KIP IPS. An administrator would then use the
management capability of Request to open up the print queue. Upon opening Windows explorer
on the KIP IPS, the administrator could browse to the C:\Monpath1\Installers folder and perform the
required upgrade. This function has mainly been established for ease of use by any administrator to
make software upgrades.
Print Reports
This feature will allow the user to print reports with information from the KIP Printer to be used for
accounting purposes (see Creating Productivity Reports).

Appendix
Technical description
Fold parameters are assigned similar to Stamp (.STP) files and Pen Table (.PEN) files as explained in the
KIP Job Ticket Integration Information. In the job ticket folder, there is a job sub-folder containing text
files that refer to the .STP, .PEN files for stamping and pen tables, there is now a new file referred to as a
.FLD file that contains fold parameters.
In Stamping a particular image, the job sub-folder must contain files such as 0000.SSP which contains the
name of the .STP file associated with stamping the first image in the job. The content of the .SSP file is
actually the name of the .STP file (also in the job sub-folder) to be used by the Unattend program in
stamping a particular image. Subsequent images are stamped by using 0001.SSP, 0002.SSP to stamp
image number 2 and 3 in the job. The numbering refers to the order of the documents in the .KIP ASCII
Job Ticket. This method is duplicated for setting a fold parameter to work with image number 1, using
0000.FLP, then image 2 using 0001.FLD etc.

FolderOriginalOrientation
Defined as landscape =0, portrait=1, reverse landscape=2, reverse portrait=3. Unattend uses this
information combined with “FolderOutputOrientation” to calculate a final rotation parameter used in
creation of the TIF Pack bit file before printing. Note: When using the KIP Folder all images must print in
Portrait mode with title block exiting the printer last in order to fold properly and finish with the title block
showing.

Defined as landscape =0, portrait=1, reverse landscape=2, reverse portrait=3. Unattend uses this
information combined with “FolderOriginalOrientation” to calculate a final rotation parameter used in
creation of the TIF Pack bit file before printing. Note: When using the KIP Folder all images must print in
Portrait mode with title block exiting the printer last in order to fold properly and finish with the title block

FolderRollSize
This is used to lock printing to a specific roll size used in folding this document. Valid values are 0=36” roll,
1=34”, 2=30”, 3=24”, 4=22”, 5=18”, 6=17”, 7=12”, 8=11”, 9=8.5” or the word “Closest”. If using a value 0-9,
the controller will prompt the user for this media size before continuing to print. This will stop the printer
and other jobs from printing until the user inserts this size of media. If “Closest” is used, the Controller will
use the media that fits the image the best after applying the rotation specified. Note: If using Force Size
feature of the Job Ticket you must also use the same Roll Size for Force Size in FolderRollSize of the .FLD
file.
FolderPreset=2
This refers to the preset in the Kipfoldpreset.ini. The settings defining packet size, margin, and fan and
cross fold settings are set in the kipfoldpreset.ini by the technician at the controller. As a feature of
Request 5 SR3, user can display the names of these settings in the new Rotate / Fold menus. The Request
obtains a copy of the kipfoldpreset.ini from the current Log Directory (Log Directory as set in Unattend,
Configuration, Miscellaneous Setup) named “presets.ini”.

The KIP Productivity Reporting Package (PRP) is designed to use information gathered from accounting
fields in KIP Request along with various applications that have been linked to KIP Request such as:
•
KIP Request
•
AutoCAD
•
KIP IPS Software
•
KIP PrintNet
By sharing accounting data generated from KIP Request, users have the ability to link multiple
applications using the same accounting rules. This system allows managers to generate reports that
have valuable accounting information and can be manipulated by the user to get the desired output
including the following:
•
KIP productivity reporting package generates reports of meter readings and accounting data
on a daily, weekly or monthly time cycle.
•
Reports include detailed authorization, accounting and meter information.
•
PRP reports can be opened with Notepad or exported as an ASCII file format.
There are three main accounting fields in the Request software:
Request
1. Requester - This is a field which can be used for accounting.
Information entered is applied to the KIP Job and Print Logs.
2. Job Number - This is a field which can be used for accounting. Information entered is applied to the
KIP Job and Print Logs. This field is tied to ALL Reports!
3. Description - This is a field which can be used for accounting. Information entered is applied to the
KIP Job and Print Logs.
