Dear Client,

we're pleased to announce the new Printfil 5.22 release.

What's new:

  • Added integration with the vDos emulator. If Printfil is running in evaluation mode, when selecting a LPT or COM port to capture at Configuration -> Standard, Printfil detects if vDos is installed on the system (provided it has been installed in the c:\vDos default path) and it asks if you want to automatically configure it to capture the same COM / LPT port.
    Just like the other DOSBox variants already supported by Printfil, vDos may be useful to use a DOS program on a 64 bit Windows OS without having to use a virtualization software like VMWare or VirtualBox.
    Please find more info at
  • New DosPrint utility available. The freeware DosPrint.exe program checks the Windows machine first (32/64 bits, eventually installed DOS emulators, etc), then it can automatically download, install and configure both your preferred DOSBox variant and Printfil to have everything up and running with just a couple of clicks, including the capture of COM and LPT ports for printing.
    DosPrint is freely available at
  • If you need to use Printfil just for a few months, or occasionaly over the year, now you purchase the new Montly Licenses, that work just like the Standard ones, but they cost a tenth and last 30 days.
    This way you can use Printfil for a few cents per day. If you consider the cost of a printed sheet, rather than printing to a PDF (for example), this makes Printfil's cost near to Zero (or you could even save money).
    Please find more info and the complete price table, including quantity discounts at
  • Some other minor improvements

The upgrade is free for all the Customers who are using the 5.x version, by using the same license codes. You just need to download and install the new Printfil setup program (or leave the AutoUpdate program doing it automatically) without uninstalling the current version first.

If you are still using an old 4.3 version, purchased since 7 Nov 2005 (date of its release), you've right to the free upgrade too, but even your license codes needs to be upgraded (Printfil 5 uses different codes than Printfil 4). The AutoUpdate program will guide you through the update process and will automatically update everything that is needed. If the automatic check has been disabled, simply right-click the Printfil's trayed icon and choose "Search for updates".

If you've purchased previous 4.x licenses from 2003 to 2005, for a limited time only, you can still upgrade them to the newest version simply by purchasing Printfil Upgrade licenses at discounted prices. Don't miss this opportunity! it will expire soon!

If you've questions, comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,
