SOLscript Test File Criteria

To demonstrate the capabilities, speed, and accuracy of Solimar solutions, customer application testing is available. Solimar technicians will test compatibility, examine the fidelity of the output, and incorporate specific printing requirements into the final product. A test result summary will be provided, including viewable PDF files.

Sending VIPP

When sending VIPP test files, please include sample data along with all of the necessary electronic printer resources that are called by the file. Also, please include all VIPP core files and system files that may have been changed. These files are typically located in the /usr/xgf/src/ directory on UNIX systems or the \xgf\src\ directory on DOS systems.

Necessary Information to Include

  • Complete company name, address, telephone number, and email address
  • Name and title of main contact
  • Description of host systems, printers, and existing connectivity
  • Name of software programs and printer driver(s) used to create test files
  • Detail desired changes to printing environment and workflow
  • Any existing printing challenges with the files
  • Desired media for returning test results
  • Sample hardcopy output from the test data provided, produced on the current printer.

Media Guidelines

To assist with test file reliability, please submit the files in Windows readable format (floppy disk, CD-ROM, ZIP disk, etc.). Files with the necessary test information can be submitted via FTP, email, courier, or regular mail. When sending electronically, attach compressed, self-executable files that include the data and printer resources. For sending files via mail or courier, include the data and resources on CD, diskette, 9-track tape, ¼” tape, 3480/3490 cartridge, or Zip disk.

Please complete the SOLscript Test File Checklist to make sure you have supplied all the crucial information regarding your sample data. For testing reports with sensitive information, clients should generate fictitious data to assure the security of the transmitted information. File testing is performed daily, but allow up to 10 business days for results due to high demand peaks.
