Nova OEM - Using Windows Environment Variables

Post by chris.mcl »

When using a typical windows user environment variable with Nova OEM as entry to the application.
For example: `%USER_VARIABLE%/run-me.exe %1 (nova's PDF)`.

sometimes it is able to launch successfully and sometimes not, rebooting the machine after installation works perfectly every time and NOVA that eval the user variable. Without restarting the PC, this is presumably because NOVA starts running before has no context of the newly created USER variable.

The problem is that I do not want to restart the client PC if at all possible. Is there a way in which Nova can be restarted to get the newly added windows environment variable everytime?

I've tried restarting nova-server and the print spooler service, both didn't work.

The environment variable is evaluated in the printer driver modules that are loaded by Print Spooler service (when the Location setting is set to "Server" folders) and the applications that print to novaPDF printer (when the Location settings is set to "Local" folders). Try to restart the printing applications too.
