PDF-XChange Drivers API

PDF-XChange Drivers API SDK provides Developers with a comprehensive set of Virtual Drivers to generate Adobe® compatible PDF files from their software applications using our best selling PDF-XChange print drivers for Windows XP & Later (32/64 bit). When using these drivers you can be sure that the files you generate offer the most highly compressed/optimized PDF files available from any general PDF virtual driver - smaller size files generated quickly and efficiently.

Virtually all the functionality of our 'End User' versions of PDF-XChange are controllable by the developer - for more information on what you can do please download the SDK evaluation - Clarion Developers should download the Clarion Evaluation.

We also provide a complete 'slimmed' down Client installers (both 32 & 64 bit Drivers included) for you to provide to your clients - or wrap within your own desired installation process (silent installation supported) - you must use this installer as it contains a mechanism to ensure that unlicensed use is not possible in 'open' mode without generating evaluation PDF's, it also ensures safe and correct installation (silently if required) for Windows XP and later, TS and Citrix Metaframe supported.

Clarion Developers have the choice of using our generic toolkits, or our Clarion specific SDKs which offer Clarion specific Help and Examples, along with comprehensive classes and templates for all versions of Clarion from C5b and up, making its major functions simple to incorporate into their project.

*Each Drivers API SDK License includes 100,000 end user installations royalty-free.

I have tested about 10 other printer drivers and this one is clearly the best. It has all the features I needed and the API is very convenient and well documented. What's more, for the past 2 years I have been using this product, the company has provided excellent and fast support.
