Create PDF Files Using a Network Printer (Completely Free)

Michael Khanin Michael Khanin Profile: Michael Khanin

Recently, I needed to find a free solution to creating a PDF file by using virtual network printer. The idea was send the job to the pdf virtual pdf-printer, then the user is prompted to ‘save as’, they select a location and the pdf is created.
After googleng and testing the solution was done.

I’ve used Bullzip to print pdf as a shared network printer. By doing few changes to the global. ini, Bullzip are then able to output pdf without any dialogue.

Here is a changes in the global.ini:

[PDF Printer]
DisableOptionDialog=yes
Output=R:\<basedocname>.pdf
ShowSaveAS=never
ShowSettings=never
ShowPDF=no
ConfirmOverwrite=no
