Lite Driver Registry

Wed Sep 21, 2016 2:43 pm

For my Lite Driver version 5 install you gave me the following .reg file so that I could set the iRunApp setting to false to False.

Can you provide me with something similar for the Lite Driver version 6 install as well?

Thanks.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite 5\Printers\Profiles]
"SystemProfile"="{079FD97E-8382-482B-9A09-30D25094ABCB}"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite 5\Printers\Profiles\All]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite 5\Printers\Profiles\All\{079FD97E-8382-482B-9A09-30D25094ABCB}\Data]

"i.RunApp"=dword:00000000

Hi Jeff,
It seems to be a bug in the recent version of the driver that breaks this technique. I am working on this issue. We might provide you with a custom build, if unable to find a reliable workaround.

Hi Jeff,
The issue has been fixed. Until it is released please use the following .reg file as a workaround:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\DevModes2]
"PDF-XChange Lite V6"=-
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\DevModePerUser]
"PDF-XChange Lite V6"=-
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite 5\Printers\Profiles]
"SystemProfile"=-

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite 5\Printers\Profiles]
"SystemProfile"="{079FD97E-8382-482B-9A09-30D25094ABCB}"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite 5\Printers\Profiles\All]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite 5\Printers\Profiles\All\{079FD97E-8382-482B-9A09-30D25094ABCB}\Data]

I'm not sure I follow when you say it has been fixed.

I can wait for the fix, but how will it be implemented? Still with a .reg file? Is so, how will the .ref file look with the fix?

Hi Jeff,
The bug was that "SystemProfile" registry value was not updated after the printer settings modification (done by the driver). Therefore when you modify the "system profile" data in the registry, the result will be like your changes are not applied to the printer. Now it has been fixed.

how will it be implemented? Still with a .reg file? Is so, how will the .ref file look with the fix?

You can use the .reg file from my previous post to customize the printer settings 'from scratch' both in the current and the next release of Lite driver.
But if you want to just modify the existing profile registry data you have to wait for the next build.

Please let me know if the proposed solution works for you.

But your previous post references "PDF-XChange Lite 5" for the reg folder. I thought that since this is now version 6 it would be "PDF-XChange Lite 6".

And I thought {079FD97E-8382-482B-9A09-30D25094ABCB} would be different now in version 6.

We left the registry name unchanged for backward compatibility.
Agreed it looks awkward. Like 64-bit kernel32.dll in Windows. :)
And I thought {079FD97E-8382-482B-9A09-30D25094ABCB} would be different now in version 6.

You can use any GUID. It is the identifier of a new printer settings profile you are adding in the registry.

Ok. I see.

So just to confirm, the old .reg file you gave me for version 5 should work just fine in version 6 once you release the fix in the next build. Correct?

If so, I can just wait for the next build and not change any of my registry code.

Unless you want to change the existing (modified by the user) printer settings (i.e. not just setup the settings 'from scratch' (based on the hard-coded printer defaults)), I do recommend using a .reg file with the latest additions from my post above. Because the old .reg file to work correctly must be applied immediately after the printer installation, before any settings modification are done through the printer UI.

Spoke too soon. I'm trying to launch the Lite Driver from my installer program. In the past I just called your exe with the following params

/VERYSILENT /NORESTART /NOICONS /COMPONENTS="pdfSaver,PDFXChangedriver,Help,Languagess" "/Organization:FileCenter" /DIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\FileCenter\Drivers\" /PName="FileCenter PDF Printer 6" /LOG="C:\ProgramData\FileCenter\PDFPrinterLog.txt" "/Key:XYZ

With your Lite Drivers 4 and 5 the above params suppressed your installer dialogs and just did a silent install.

But now when I use these params on your new PDFXLite6.exe, your installer dialogs pop up. Did something change in the params I need to use in version 6 in order to get the silent install I'm looking for? Am I using the right exe?

Thanks.

Hi Jeff,

Looking at our online documentation for the EXE installers, it looks like this may have been changed to just /quiet (perhaps /QUIET). Can you please try that and see if that helps?

Cheers,

Yes, Ivan emailed me directly about this.

I'm just waiting for him to implement the PNAME or PNAMELITE option in the lite exe installer so I can change the name of the driver.

Just installed the new Lite 7 Driver. Everything from 6 seems to work with my 7 installer, with one exception. I need to know the correct registry entry to turn i.RunApp off by default.

Can you help me here? Thanks.

To change printer's option you have to use Control Panel -> Drivers and Printer, or run pdfSaver with command line option /SetOptions (more details you can find on the help site.
For example, i.RunApp can be set using the following command line:

"%ProgramFiles%\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite\pdfSaverL.exe" /SetOptions "Save.RunApp=false" /Printer "PDF-XChange Lite"

This doesn't seem to be working. Here are my exact parameters, but the "Run Application After Printing" option is still checked after the initial install. What am I missing?

/quiet /norestart /SetOptions "Save.RunApp=false" /log "C:\ProgramData\FileCenter\PDFPrinterLog7.txt" PNAME="FileCenter PDF Printer 7" ORGANIZATION="FileCenter" KEYDATA=".."

Again, I'm using the EXE not the MSI installer

Hi Jeff,
You have to correct the pdfSaver command above according to your custom printer name:
"%ProgramFiles%\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite\pdfSaverL.exe" /SetOptions "Save.RunApp=false" /Printer "FileCenter PDF Printer 7"

Re: Lite Driver Registry

Thu Feb 22, 2018 7:52 pm

What about my use of

PNAME="FileCenter PDF Printer 7"

Does this need to come before the use of

/SetOptions "Save.RunApp=false" /Printer "FileCenter PDF Printer 7"

or after.

Isn't PNAME used to change the printer name? And doesn't this need to happen so /Printer has context?

PNAME is an option of the printer installer, while /SetOptions is an option of the printer utility process (pdfSaverL.exe).
To use pdfSaverL.exe you must have the printer installed.

Ok. So how do I know the file path of pdfSaverL.exe once I run the installer.

So what you are saying is run the installer, and then run pdfSaveL.exe

By default (unless you select a custom installation directory) pdfSaverL is located here:
"%ProgramFiles%\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite\pdfSaverL.exe"

Tried this:

and this

"C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite\pdfSaverL.exe" /SetOptions "Save.RunApp=false" /Printer "PDF-XChange Lite"

Neither worked.

Is there something wrong with my syntax still?

Hi Jeff,
It appeared that support for /SetOptions was disabled in the Lite edition of the printer. I was unaware of this, sorry.
The good news is that we have selectively re-enabled this feature in the latest 324.3 build of the Lite printer.
Specifically, Lite edition now supports /SetOptions for the following values:
Save.ShowSaveDialog,
Save.RunApp,
Save.RunCustom,
Save.AppName,
Save.AppParams

Ok. I installed build 324.3 of the Lite driver.

I then ran both of the following, but the RunApp option was still checked.

"C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite\pdfSaverL.exe" /SetOptions "Save.RunApp=false" /Printer "FileCenter PDF Printer 7"

and

"C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Lite\pdfSaverL.exe" /SetOptions "Save.RunApp=false" /Printer "PDF-XChange Lite"

Am I missing a step?

Sorry, Jeff, you have to wait until build 325. This update was not included in the final 324.3 build.
Build 325 is preliminary scheduled for April.
I have just tested the latest build snapshot of the Lite driver - /SetOptions "Save.RunApp=false" works ok.

Hi Jeff,

Yes Roman's post above is a confirmation that it has indeed already been fixed and is working as it should, and the fix will be available in build 325.

Stefan
