As of now I have this in my Execute Process task Command section to print a list of text files in a directory.

Get-ChildItem -path $Directory -recurse -include *.txt | ForEach-Object {Start-Process -FilePath $_.fullname -Verb Print -PassThru | %{sleep 5;$_} | kill }
I believe it goes to the locally configured printer.
How do I make these files print to a specific network printer.
Thanks

You can print to a specified printer using the Output-Printer cmdlet e.g.

Get-Process | Output-Printer "IT Department Printer"

Can I do something like this ?

Get-ChildItem -path $Directory -recurse -include *.txt | ForEach-Object {Start-Process -FilePath $_.fullname -Verb Print -PassThru | %{sleep 5;$_} | kill }
Get-Process | Output-Printer "\\Print1\ABC01"
where ABC01 is the name of the printer.

or

Get-ChildItem -path $Directory -recurse -include *.txt | ForEach-Object {Start-Process -FilePath $_.fullname -Verb Print -PassThru | %{sleep 5;$_} | kill }
Get-Process | Output-Printer "ipaddress"

I believe so, by what you have posted. If I were you I would test that the printing is working first then build it up.
