How do I install multiple copies of PDF-XChange Standard?

Answer:

We have added a command line to PDF-XChange Standard in order to facilitate the installation of multiple copies of the software:

1. Click the Windows start icon in the taskbar.

2. Enter cmd in the text box and press enter:

The Command Prompt will open:

PDF-XChange Standard V6

1. Enter the text cd "C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange 6" and press Enter.

2. Enter the switch pdfSaver6.exe /AddPrinter <PrinterName> [/NoNotify] to create new copies of PDF-XChange Standard in the printers list.

The parameters operate as follows:

<AddPrinter> adds a new printer to the printers list.

<PrinterName> determines the printer name. If the printer name contains spaces then it must be enclosed in quotation marks, for example "Sample Printer ". A name different from those of existing printers must be used.

<NoNotify> is an optional parameter that prevents the sending of information about changes in the printers list to other applications.

For example: pdfSaver6.exe /AddPrinter "New Printer"

3. Press Enter. The new copy of the printer will then be available.

4. Move to the Control Panel and click Devices and Printers to view/use new printers:
