Create full-featured Adobe PDF files by printing from within any Windows application on the client side to the shared PDF printer on the server side.

Trial Version: 1.02, Size: 1611KB

Unlike many similar server-based software, Modern PDF Server intercepts documents extremely fast on their way to the printer, creating a version in Adobe's PDF format instead of spitting out a physical piece of paper.

The software installs as a virtual print driver, which means users need only click the print button in any application to create a PDF file. Users can choose the page size and orientation, resolution, and whether a font should be embedded or not. It allows documents to be encrypted, and user permissions to be set. A specific image can be set as a page background to watermark a document. The conversion speed and quality is incredibly high, and generated PDF file is arguably the smallest in the world. With the caveat that there are similar products widely available that offer much the same functionality, we recommend Modern PDF Server software product to you as a high-quality, high-performance, server-based, one-stop solution for deploying PDF creation ability across your organization!

As an alternative PDF server solution to Adobe based PDF converter software, Modern PDF Server uses its own PDF driver on the server side rather than Adobe Distiller.

Additional driver for x86 and x64

Modern PDF Server installs both 64-bit and 32-bit PDF print driver in the Additional Drivers tab. Therefore, any Windows x86 (32-bit) or Windows x64 (64-bit) client can have immediate access to the Modern PDF Server printer without prompting the client user to install the needed PDF printer driver.

Automatic Install of PDF Print Driver

Sure. A Client Install tool is included in this Modern PDF Solutions package. With this tool, you can deploy your PDF printer automatically rather than manually to all your clients from your logon script or environment setup script.

Create PDF on All Client Computers

Modern PDF Server makes the creation of PDF files fairly easy. On the client side, just print any document to the Modern PDF printer as you normally print to an InkJet or LaserJet printer, and you will get the PDF document that you need.
