Printing Integrated Labels

I am currently try to print Thermal shipping labels on a ZD420. I have been trying to get the “Printing Integrated Shipping Labels With a Thermal Printer” option set up in Oracle, but have been hitting a road block. I have completely followed the instructions, but can only get the labels to print if I open the download folder and “drag and drop” the generated file onto the Bat file I was instructed to create. Printer is currently hooked up via USB, firewalls and antivirus have been shut off, and I get the same results in any kind of web browser. Any advice on what I can try to make them print once the file finishes downloading? Thanks

I use a third-party application called Folder Mill.

A lot of the other methods to get the .ZPL/ .EPL /etc. labels to print don’t always work.

The free version of FolderMill isn’t the best since it forces a cover page with their logo to print, however, it has made life much easier for printing out thermal printer labels.

Setting a default program to open the batch file

Select one of the following methods to open EPL2 or ZPL files from your desktop.

Method 1

  1. Save the EPL2 or ZPL file to your desktop.
  2. Right-click the saved file.
  3. Click Open With and then Choose default program.
  4. Click Browse and then locate the label.bat file.
  5. Click Open.
  6. Check the Always use the selected to open this kind of file box.
  7. Click OK.

Method 2

  1. Right-click the saved EPL2 or ZPL file.
  2. Select Properties
  3. In the General tab, click Change.
  4. Select a program from the list or click Browse to select the label.bat file you saved earlier.

Chrome – Option to automatically open files of this type:

Start download, when Chrome asks for a folder to store it, just specify one and let it download. Then, you’ll find the file in the download bar. Click the Up-Arrow next to the file name. There I found the “open always” menu entry. Chrome launched the file and launches other downloads now automatically.

If you do not get the option, you can reset Chrome to prompt – Settings – Advanced – Downloads – Open certain file types automatically after downloading – Clear
