Uninstall PDF-XChange Lite v8 Virtual Printer

Post by lmacri » Thu Dec 05, 2019 12:28 am

I'd like to uninstall the PDF-XChange Lite v8 virtual printer that came bundled with the free version of PDF XChange Editor v8.0.333 since there doesn't seem to be any way to remove the obtrusive "Click to buy NOW!" watermarks at the top of each .PDF document it generates.

Will I remove all traces of PDF-XChange Lite if I choose "Remove Device" for this printer at Settings | Devices | Printers & Scanners on my Win 10 machine? I can't see any entry for this program in Settings | Apps & Features or Control Panel | Programs | Programs & Features that I can use to uninstall this software.

Hello lmacri,

If the printer was installed along with another product it cannot be fully removed without removing the base product that installed it. you can certainly use "remove device" for now to take it our of your device listing, and when you later uninstall the Editor the printer will be fully uninstalled along with it.

If you explicitly want to remove the printer from your machine, you will need to uninstall all of our products, then reinstall the ones you would like, and perform a "custom installation" so that you can prevent the lite printer from being installed in the first place.

I hope this helps!
