Current version: 1.10.58

Raster-XChange Server Version
Raster-XChange Local Version

As with our award winning PDF-XChange PDF software, the latest addition to our product range installs onto your system as a 'Virtual' printer allowing you to 'print' your document/Image from any Windows application to any of the industry standard Raster format's supported (see below) - rather than paper. For example from MS Word - simply create your document, select 'File -> Print -> Select Raster-XChange' printer and adjust the printer options to the desired output format etc (i.e. TIFF) and print - your document will be saved to a fully compatible industry standard CCIT grp 3/4 compressed multi page TIFF file if that is your need, or any other available supported output flavor and format. Raster-XChange is available as a  Local or Server Edition, see features below for details.

This product has been discontinued.

Raster-XChange (Server Edition)

Raster-XChange (Server) offers the same functionality as the 'Local' version - however may be installed locally or as a shared 'Server' device without any installation required on any client PC - simply attached to the shared printer on the server.

* 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.

** Limitations to product support for Windows XP

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.
