How do I stop PDF-eXPLODE from processing a job? I terminated the PDF-eXPLODE in the Windows Task Manager but every time I start up it resumes

ISSUE:

How do I stop PDF-eXPLODE from processing a job? I terminated the PDF-eXPLODE process in the Windows Task manager but every time I start up PDF-eXPLODE, the job processing resumes.



ANSWER:

The .TMP file is the source output from Windows and if the file is currently in the PDF-eXPLODE print queue, it will continue to attempt to re-print, unless deleted. The file is in the format ~PD999.TMP where '999' is a random 3 digit alpha-numeric or numeric value.  You need to d elete the ."TMP" file from the appropriate location shown below.

PDF-eXPLODE Desktop  (V1/ V2/ V3):

 If your PC is Win XP, Win 2000 / 2003, then the TMP can be found here:
    C:\Documents and Settings\<your account>\Local Settings\Temp\PDFeXplode\<your account>   OR

If your version is Win Vista or Win 7 or Win 2008, then the TMP can be found here:
   C:\Users\<your account>\AppData\Temp\PDFeXPLODE\<your account> 


PDF-eXPLODE Version 3 & 4


If your version of PDf-eXPLODE is V3 or V4 and it is:
   PDF-eXPLODE Print Server, CITRIX/Terminal Server or Report Server V3+  OR 
   PDF-eXPLODE Desktop,  Print Server, CITRIX/Terminal Server or Report Server  V4+

then the TMP file can be found here:
    [PDF-eXPLODE Program folder]\TEMP\<your account>

You should also check the Processes tab in Windows Task Manager and check if pdf-explode.exe*32 and pdfexplodespl.exe*32 are still in memory - if so, please terminate these too.
