PDF Xchange4.0 and "Click to buy now" watermark

Post by hector g pabon » Mon Feb 27, 2012 12:33 am

Hi,

My PDF Xchange 4.0 Printer Driver still print the demo watermark on a
test page. I have already entered developer license key in the "about" tab.

The license key also embed into the .lic file.

Thanks for any help.

Have you compiled a sample app and tried using that or are you tring to print to the driver from a 3rd party application such as MS Office directly to the print driver - if the latter - you CANNOT do that...

The license only allows to to create applications using our products and if clarion either our templates/classes etc - you cannot print directly to the driver from any app you have not created.
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.

Best regards

Hello Hector,

Please make sure that both the License Key and the Dev Code are entered in the .lic file as appropriate, and if you are still having troubles - please write to support@tracker-software.com with your order number or license key - and we will check if it's correct and whether it's not e.g. for a different SDK product.

Best,
Stefan

Hi Hector,

which demo app are you compiling and trying?

If you simply use the printers test page option directly - YOU WILL get demo watermarks as this is direct access to the printer - not enabled via a compiled app that has your license info embedded and the printer will function in trial mode - not licensed mode - as explained any direct access to the printer not passed through an app you create/compile - will result in watermarks on the PDF's created/modified.?
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.

Hi,

I just simply use the printers test page.

Other than that, no demo watermark appear.

Hector - if you have a developer license - your serial number is NOT VALID to be used directly in the driver and therefore any attempt to print to or from the driver directly WILL result in the trial stamps on ALL output - this includes using the 'Test Page' option !

Your developer license ONLY allows you to generate PDF files from controlled by or within an Application you have coded - you cannot use the driver any other way - see the example applications that come with the developer SDK - recompile a developers SDK example from Clarion having installed your serial number and devcode in the TSPLICS.INC file and then compile an example - you will see no trial watermarks when using this way - YOU MUST NOT enter your serial number in the end user application interface - AT ALL

Please read the doc's and see the examples !

Hi,

Thanks for the info. I'm New to this tools and I'm reading documentation, practicing, learning,
compiling, developing for customers all at the same time.

So, when doubts comes to my mind, I will surely fire a question here. Even if its a dump question as I know I can count on your excellent support.

Regards

Hi Hector!

No problem! :)

One thing to keep in mind - even if you post a question in the forums, if we request that you send us a generated CLW file or sample output, I recommend that you EMAIL the code or sample to me, instead of posting it in the forum. I will still respond in the forum, but it keeps information that might be either confidential or a "trade secret" private.
