Can you share the printer?

Post by PdfSnooper » Sun Apr 01, 2012 12:17 am

Can you share this "printer" via the network, so a machine printing somewhere else on the network will produce a PDF file on the "printer" machine?

Hi,

No - to ensure licensing integrity PDF-XChange is designed to act only as a standalone printer and must be installed and licensed on each workstation.

Hope that helps to clarify.

I wanted to use it as a standalone printer.

Don't have any workstations.

But the answer was no, get lost. Got it.

You asked a question and got a perfectly civil and factual reply within 90 minutes on a weekend - but because the answer is one you dont like - abuse is the reponse?

1; Your intention was not to use it as a standalone printer on a single PC - but to share it on a network with other users and a single user license does not allow this. Where's the beef ?

2: You do have 'Pseudo' workstation connections to your PC if the printer is configured to be shared - fact.

Now - you can happily go to another supplier content in the knowledge that despite your question being answered promptly, politely - it was a negative to your desired response and that justifies any ill tempered abusive reply you care to throw back ...

I'd say we will probably both be happier if you took your business elsewhere and we can concentrate on the many millions of users content to receive prompt, factual and knowledgeable replies from a responsive supplier with the only caveat being that we treat each other with civility and respect - something you clearly are incapable of understanding or willing to reciprocate.
