Re: MSI: group policy deploy - pdf extensions not associated

/me sighs 2.5 years later and the PDF-XChange PRO 6.0.319.0 msi installer still has the same bug. As soon as the msi is deployed as machine installation via group policies, neither the file extensions are in place nor is pdfxchange the pdf application. It's the same for local users, local administra...

Re: custom named printer doesn't get removed on uninstall

I hope that helps. Unfortunately not. I mean, the problem is that a re-installation fails because of an existing pdf printer which wasn't removed during uninstall. Running WMI queries (maybe as custom msi actions) might work but isn't more than I hack. I consider this as an error of the installer. ...

custom named printer doesn't get removed on uninstall

For historical reasons, the pdf printer in our Windows 7 x64 enviroment is named "PDF". Starting with the PDF-XChange PRO 6.0.317 x64 MSI package, a custom named pdf printer doesn't get removed if PDFX gets uninstalled. It works fine with the PDF-XChange PRO 5.5.315 x64 MSI package. This is especial...

Re: garbled characters when printing pdfs with embedded font

Hi Will, thanks again for your reply. The Text Rendering Mode: Outline for Embedded Fonts is the default for PDF-XChange Editor 6.0.317. Switching the Text Rendering Mode back to "auto" fixed the issue for me. Each other option, results in garbled characters with 5.5.315 as well as 6.0.317. Strange!...

Re: garbled characters when printing pdfs with embedded font

Hi Will, thanks for your reply. Albeit the issue described in the linked thread sounds similar to my issue, I'm somehow in doubt that it's directly related. In my case only PDF-XChange PRO 6.0.317 is affected. I'm not able to reproduce the issue with PDF-XChange PRO 5.5.315. Furthermore my issue is ...

Re: How to set a default printer profile

Everything is fine!

It looks like that only my test user had a mysterious registry value set. After removing HKCU\Printers\DevModePerUser\PDF my "standard" printer profile is selected by default.

Sorry for the noise

Re: MSI installation error

That one is quite easy to answer. DDEFLANGID & PDEFLANGID have to be numerical values.

For german use 1031, for "Use Users Regional Settings" set the value to 0.
