PDFCreator 5.2.1 - Maintenance Release


We are excited to announce the latest update of PDFCreator, designed to streamline your PDF creation process and provide a more seamless user experience.

Apart from performance improvements and fixing reported bugs, one of the notable changes in this update is the introduction of the /DeferLicensingServiceStart setup command line parameter for PDFCreator Terminal Server. With this parameter, the licensing service does not immediately start upon software installation, but rather requires a manual start or system restart. This update offers users more control over the licensing process in deployment scenarios (e.g., creating a golden image without using up a license activation). 

With these enhancements, we aim to provide users with a more efficient, reliable, and user-friendly PDF creation experience. We value your feedback and continuously strive to improve PDFCreator to meet your evolving needs.

For more information on the parameter and a complete overview of the changes, please refer to the user guide.
