'[way][OT] PDF Printer driver'
1998\01\20@152426 by Brian Schousek

picon face
I recently upgraded my machine from '95 to NT. All the data ported over fine
(and so far MPLAB works fine everybody :-) haven't executed code with the
ICEPIC yet, but it passes all self-tests.)

But to continue on the off-topic rant.... one thing I miss from my '95
install was the printer driver which allowed me to print from any program to
a PDF file. It came with some random Adobe Acrobat install from a
manufacturer's data CD-ROM, and I really don't want to install acrobat some
20-40 times just to figure out which one. (This was a free Acrobat reader,
not a purchased full-featured install.) Does this ring a bell with anyone on
the list? Do you remember which manufacturer included it? Thanks...

I believe you do actually need the full Acrobat to get PDF file creation.
The reader doesn 't support this.  I remember an old version of Acrobat
(called back then Exchange) was on the Linear CDROM, but it doesn't work
well with Win95, and there are about a million versions since, and Acrobat,
or whatever they're calling it now, costs $$.  BUT it sure is a useful
feature!

    Yep,
   
    It is linearview CDROM from linear tech. ver1.00 and 2.00 at least. It
    has acrobat exchange on it (ver2.10) - The head guy just smiled when I
    thanked him for putting it on, so I have no idea if it was by accident
    or not. (thou to do it twice....reminds me of some line out of an
    oscar wilde play!)

I never had a problem with mine, and I've been running 95 longer than I've
had the CD.

There's a 'lite' version of the Acrobat distiller that ships with PageMaker.
Perhaps it also ships with other Adobe applications...

Also, the full version has been available to MS Word owners for under $100
lately (from Micro Warehouse), which is about 50% of "normal" cost. It's
capable of converting Word files to PDF.
