KB Home | Using the Card Wizard on a Mac or Linux network
Q Do you have a version of the card wizard that will operate on the Mac or Linux?
The card wizard at the current time is a Windows-Only program. This is because it uses Microsoft Word and its Macro language (VBScript) to perform a Mail Merge. Card generation is a once-off procedure and Windows is not required to actually use or operate cards. Administrators running PaperCut on a Mac or Linux server can use any Windows system to generate their cards, and once the cards are printed and the numbers imported, Windows is no longer required. The card wizard can easily be downloaded onto any Windows system via PaperCut NG’s web browser interface.
One idea that has been brought up is a web based version of the card wizard, so that cards can be created and printed from any platform. If you are interested in seeing this please let us know!
This release contains an updated Java version which no longer supports 32-bit workstations. If you have any 32-bit users launching the User Client or Release Station from a network share, see this Knowledge Base article for more information.
