PDF-XChange Viewer - Download Notes

Please note that, in order to keep the size of the installer files as small as possible, the PDF-XChange Viewer manual comes as a separate download from the product installer. The PDF-XChange Viewer manual is available here.

Additionally, please note that the PDF-XChange Viewer is not designed to create new PDF files from third-party document formats. If you want to create PDF files from other Windows applications that can print to paper, then you should use the free PDF-XChange Lite virtual printer. You can use PDF-XChange Viewer to convert scanned paper documents into PDF format, and to view, edit and annotate PDF documents.

If you are unsure of which download is applicable to you, then you should use the zip installer as it will identify the version of Windows that you are using and download the correct installer for you. Note that this installer is a .exe file wrapped in a zip file, which is a necessary step as some download management software blocks .exe files. Alternatively, you can use the .msi installer - but in that case it is necessary to download and install the correct version for your operating system.

Virtual Print Drivers

PDF-XChange Lite (this product is now free for non-commercial use, and included for commercial use with PDF-XChange Editor/Editor Plus and PDF-Tools).

PDF-XChange Standard

PDF-XChange PRO (includes PDF-XChange Editor).

MSI Installer Options
These installers are designed for corporate-level system administrators, as opposed to general users. If you are unsure of how to approach installation then you should use the default .zip installer instead of the .msi installer.

FREE OCR Support

The new OCR functionality is available at no extra charge in both the free and licensed version of PDF-XChange Viewer - but please note that it requires build 200 or later. The default installation supports four languages (English, French, German and Spanish). Additional language extension packages are available here. If PDF-XChange Viewer (build 200 or later) has been installed without the OCR base languages support, then it is necessary to download and install the base language pack prior to any of the other available language packs.
