Yes, NPrinting 17.x generates zip files that contain the HTML file. In my testing so far, this is a single HTML file that has all images etc. embedded
One workaround could be to use a tool like 7-zip. You can create a batch file and schedule it to periodically check for zipped files in your NPrinting destination folder and unzip them into a temporary holding folder from where the MOVE command can be used to move & rename the extracted HTML file to your final destination folder.
Let's say you want the html file to always have the name Result.html. Here is my sample batch file which is self explanatory:
SET "srcdir=C:\Temp\FromDir" REM Source folder (NPrinting destination folder)
SET "tgtdir=C:\Temp\ToDir" REM Target folder (Final destination folder)
SET "tmpdir=C:\Temp\extracted-tmp" REM Temporary holding folder
REM empties the temporary holding folder
DEL /q "%tmpdir%\*"
REM although the temporary holding folder should have only one .zip file
REM I still use a loop as I don't know the name of the .zip file
REM You could remove the loop and hard code the name in place of "%%Z"
REM We will never know the name of the extracted HTML file hence the second
REM FOR loop
FOR %%Z IN ("%srcdir%\*.zip") DO (
"C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" e "%%Z" -o"%tmpdir%"
FOR %%I IN ("%tmpdir%\*") DO MOVE "%%I" "%tgtdir%\Result.html"

Hi Daniel, Thank you for this workaround.
This can solve the problem, however it is not possible to create what i wanted to straight from NPrinting.
There is also another thing i noticed. In NPrinting Help:
it says that Qlik Entity report can be created from QlikView & Qlik Sense documents. I wanted to check with you whether this is true as i was not able to create Entity report from Qlik Sense. I am using ver 184.108.40.206. When i try to create such a report qlik sense connection is not available.
could you please comment on that?
