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 about this is available here.

* Note: Though many users have virtualized some of our component products such as the PDF-XChange Viewer and PDF-Tools application using XenApp, we do not support this at this time. Particularly the printer drivers are not designed to work in a virtualized environment.
To experience the best performance of our products on all Windows operating systems, the onus is on users to ensure that they have all the latest available Microsoft Windows Service Packs & Updates installed.
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:
We recommend 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 Tracker Software does not offer refunds subsequent to issuing licensing information.
