What's New:

Our PDFCreator 4.1.3 maintenance release is out and it comes with the following improvements:


  • Thanks to our translation community, we have been able to add a few new and updated languages.
  • The setup displays all languages that are available for the application, even if the setup itself is not translated to this language.

Bugs fixed

  • PDFCreator Terminal Server: The licensing service did not start properly since PDFCreator 4.1.0.
  • PDFCreator Terminal Server: It was not possible to select a local user for the license service.
  • PDFCreator Professional and Terminal Server: Hotfolder and Images2Pdf desktop shortcuts were created, although shortcuts were disabled.
  • PDFCreator Professional and Terminal Server: The creation of PDF/A with grayscale was broken. Temporarily this is fixed by using a RGB ICC profile.

Other changes

  • PDFCreator Professional and Terminal Server: The ReadMe file on how to build the x86 MSI file, is now an executable batch file.
