Daniel,
Thanks. You are correct, for prior installs I used the "pro" install. Not sure how I missed that. Time to do clean up now.

wrong printer driver installing with 7.0.328.2?

I am licensed for PDF-XChange PRO. I install using the EditorV7.x64.msi file. My most recent setup used version 7.0.328.2 and my previous install was 7.0.327.0. I never noticed this before, but for some reason I now see two printers: PDF-XChange Lite and PDF-XChange Standard. This is a standard inst...
