FWIW: there is a nice update the RedMon (v1.7) called RedMon EE (v1.81)
available at http://www.is-foehr.com/ that I have used and like a lot.
From the developers website:
Fixed issues and features [with respect to the orininal RedMon]
* On Windows Terminal Server or Windows XP with fast user switching, the
"Prompt for filename" dialog will appear on the current session.
* "SaveAs" now shows XP style dialogs if running under XP
* Support for PDF Security added - experimental -.
* Support for setting the task priority - experimental -
* Use of file-shares as output
* Environment variables are passed to the AfterWorks Process now.
* Environment variables are replaced in the program arguments. No
workaround is needed.
* RedMon EE comes with an RPC communication feature which could transfer
output-files back to the client starting the print job on a print server.
Error messages will be send to the client.
* Redmon EE may start a process after the print job has finished (After
e.g. starting a presentation program to show the pdf generated by
* additional debug messages may be written for error analysis.
No special debug version is needed.
* user interface has been rewritten. May be it's more friendly.
Added some basic system information which may help if running in failures.
* new feature: running on a print server.
* cleanup of documentnames "Microsoft -"

* RedMon EE does not support for NT 3.5 and Windows 95/98 !
