Windows - get a screen capture ?

Windows - get a screen capture ?


Is there a way to get a Windows screen captured from command line ? Possibly like activating an escape secuence <cntl>+<print Screen> ?

Even better if I can get the final result in jpg format ...
Appreciate help.

Long live king Moshiach !

RE: Windows - get a screen capture ?

Somebody may have written a command line screen capture tool (try searching Google), but I'm pretty sure there isn't one that comes with Windows.

I'm not a graphics programmer, but if writing one yourself, you might want to take a look at GetRegionData() or other GDI functions.  From the description, it sounds like it should capture screen data.  What you do with that raw data afterwards though, I'm not really sure...

RE: Windows - get a screen capture ?

Well, i am not quite sure but i think you could try aca capture pro.
