pushing out settings to users

Post by ketter » Wed Sep 19, 2018 5:04 pm

So we recently found out that we need to have the "Embed All Used Fonts" option checked due to some issues with a new plotter we purchased. We are running PDF-XChange Standard Version 7.0 Build 325.1. An earlier version of the PDF driver stored everything in the registry and I could just push out some registry settings to users and solve this type of problem quite simply. Where is this information stored in Version 7? Thanks!

Ken

Hello Ken,

The current settings for the V7 printer profile are now stored in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\DevModePerUser
and
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\DevModes2

So please try copying those registry keys and distribute them to other users!

Cheers,
Stefan

So everything is just stored all together in a single binary called PDF-XChange Standard? Guess I'll have to do a little testing. Wish it was still individual strings like previous versions.

Hello ketter,

The DevMode structure is the 'standard' way for printers to store their settings and that's why we have implemented this approach for ours as well.
Yes it is harder to copy just a single setting, but it has it's advantages as well.

Regards,
Stefan
