Dear Client,

we're pleased to announce the new Printfil 5.27 release.

What's new:

  • Enhanced support for Windows Server 2016 and 2019 Terminal Server, therefore we've also updated the article at

  • Added integration with the DOSBox-x emulator (the newest DOSBox variant you can find at, designed to run DOS programs on a 64-bit Windows OS without having to use virtual machines through software like XP Mode, VMWare or VirtualBox. Unlike the already supported DosBox MB6 and SVN-Daum variants, DOSBox-x does support up to 9 parallel ports and 9 serial ports, and unlike the vDos and vDosPlus variants, DOSBox-x does support even graphical DOS programs like AutoCAD or Orcad.
    When Printfil is running in evaluation mode and an LPT or COM port is selected for the capture at Configuration -> Standard, Printfil detects if DOSBox-x is present in the computer (provided it has been installed in the c:\dosbox-x default path) and it asks if you want to automatically configure it to capture the same COM / LPT port

  • Enhanced the recognition of captured print jobs containing HP-PCL escape sequences to be managed by the PCL printing engine

  • When creating the "Printfil" virtual printer to export DOS prints as PDF file, or when selecting the PS, PDF, or PCL printing engine, Printfil now checks if GhostScript/GhostPCL is already installed in your system, and eventually, it guides you through the download and installation

  • Added the aSwIt Mono Yuscii True Type PC8 font (including its ND variant) to support legacy programs that were used in Yugoslavia before the widespread use of later DOS OEM Code Page 852 for languages like Serbian, Croatian and Slovenian. Please see

  • 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 have 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!
