We have a batch reporting software (Visual Cut) that can be used to generate a report on demand to a PDF file. It runs on a single server.
I don't want to have to install the software on every person's computer than might need to generate the PDF because the individual report configuration options would have to be set up on each machine separately. I change these options periodically multiplied by the number of machines would get annoying quickly.
The software can be triggered from a simple command line.
How can a user on their machine start this command line process on the server?
It not something that needs to be run on a schedule, it's ad-hoc as needed. Final note: both systems are Windows.
