Providing a wide range of features and functions such as PDF creation and editing, searching, rendering and printing, importing and exporting PDF documents, decoding, viewing and saving images - the possibilities are almost endless and limited only by the developers imagination and creativity.

  • We recommended that users install the latest Microsoft Windows service packs and updates before using our products, as doing so will ensure the greatest possible performance of the software.
  • Our products - in particular the printer drivers that PDF-XChange Standard and PDF-XChange Lite utilize - are not designed to work in virtualized environments such as the XenApp software.
  • *There are some limitations to product support for Windows XP and Windows Vista as Microsoft have stopped supporting them. Further information about this issue is available here.

Demo Limits

Evaluation versions of our SDK software are fully functional, allowing the testing and full utilization of all SDK features, Developers need to be aware that any test documents will have a demo watermark placed on every page of any PDF created or modified with the evaluation versions.
