I like this, I've been using this for a number of years without problem. The later versions have improved the tool and fixed some GUI bugs which used to cause some usability problems.
An Excellent Alternative To Adobe and it's Free...
I will recommend this software to all my fellow computer friends. Couple it up with a Foxit PDF reader and you have a winner.
Version 2.0 is out on the program home page, but several Win 98 users have reported problems there. Version 1.0 definitely works on Win 98 (1st edition). I downloaded it today, installed it and it works fine with MS Word 97, Excel 97 and Outlook Express 6. I have, however, encountered a problem with a complex html page (Mozilla Firefox 1.0 is my browser) - although the PDF-printed document footer says page 1 of 2, page 2 won't show up on the PDF document.
Before I installed PrimoPDF V. 1.0, I tried two similar free programs. The first one did not work with Excel 97 at all and did not properly reproduce a particular font (Comic Sans MS) of an Outlook Express message - PrimoPDF is having no problem with that font. The second competing program did not work at all (possibly as a result of my selecting insufficient setup components during the installation process).
In short, PrimoPDF has produced the best results by far of the three applications I tested on Windows 98!
I have used PrimoPDF for over a year now and still find it far better than its rivals.
It is particularly good in converting Publisher files without changing the text layout that many other pdf generators do. The only disappointing factor is a request to register details appears after every 30 or so prints.
This is a really wonderful program. Easy install. Easy use. Beats everything else I've tried including Adobe Acrobat because it is 10 times faster. With Adobe, you have to wait for the program to load. With PRIMO it is already loaded, apparently as a printer driver, and BAM you have your pdf to save. Wonderful. Thanks to SnapFiles for bringing this to the world.
