Please note that as of 12th March 2021, this SDK product is no longer available to purchase, and maintenance agreements/product updates for it are expected to cease at the end of 2022. When all maintenance agreements have expired we will no longer be releasing any new SDK updates, although all existing products will continue to operate as normal. We thank you for your interest and use of these products, but they have come to represent a very small fraction of our sales revenue, and it has become clear that our business model should be updated to exclude them. Further information is available here.

The Editor Simple SDK provides developers with a set of functions to view/print PDF files within a window embedded in their software application. The GUI design and the means of employing the functionality is at the discretion of developers, and Tracker Software branding is not present in the developer's product. Note that this product is included in the PDF-XChange Editor SDK and Core API SDK. It is necessary to return a completed License Distribution Agreement (which is included with your installation) to Tracker Software in order to receive your serial key and developer code.

The Editor Simple SDK embeds functionality to view and print PDF files within Windows-based applications.

  • We recommend 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.
  • If you are using Windows 7 then please ensure you have the latest release and all available fixes - otherwise you may encounter issues, as detailed here.

Demo Limits

Evaluation versions of our SDK software are fully functional, and allow the testing and full utilization of all SDK features. Developers should 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:

Tracker Software recommends that you use the evaluation SDKs extensively - prior to purchase - in order to to ensure that you are satisfied with the product, and only purchase when you are ready to recompile your completed application (with your license strings, which will remove the demo watermark restrictions) for distribution to your clients - as we does not offer refunds subsequent to issuing licensing information.

Available only as an MSI installer.
