How to locate and view the EasyBadge printer status monitor (Watchman.exe)

Modified on Mon, 01 Mar 2021 at 04:29 PM

You can check the error status of any EasyBadge printer by doing the following.


The EasyBadge printer has a status monitor program called Watchman.exe held in this location on the user’s PC..



C:\EasyBadge Driver\EasyBadge

or this folder if you have an IDP Smart 51 or 31

C:\Program Files (x86)\IDP\Driver\SMART51_x64



When you run it it will appear as a small grey printer icon (shown here bottom left in the  System tray pop up) here..




You can then turn it on by right clicking the icon , going to “display”  setting it to “popup” or “Always” depending if you want it to display all the time or pop up when an error is reported.




Once set this way the printer will tell you the problem it has.
