Dear Client,

I'm pleased to announce to you the new Printfil 5.28 release.

What's new:

  • Added support for Windows 11 and Windows Server 2022 Terminal Server

  • Better creation of the "Printfil" virtual printer to export DOS prints as PDF files. Solved a problem recently caused by a Microsoft update; in addition, now it can be used by different Windows users even on client Windows systems, including Windows 11

  • Enhanced the PS printing engine. Printing PostScript jobs is faster and the "Printfil" virtual printer is no more needed to preview them on the screen

  • Enhanced the PCL printing engine. Print preview no more requires the "Printfil" virtual printer

  • When merging a PDF file as the background of a DOS print by the GDI printing engine, now you can use even long file names with embedded spaces

  • The recent Microsoft 2021-12 Cumulative Update caused the "Printfil" virtual printer to stop working on Windows Terminal Servers. Please see the yellow note in the article at

  • Some other minor improvements

Important: we have a new code signing certificate that may cause a Microsoft Defender SmartScreen warning on download until the new certificate gains sufficient reputation.
If so, please choose Run anyway: the file doesn't contain any malware as you can see in this VirusTotal check.

If you're currently using a previous 5.x version, the previous license codes are still valid even for the new version. 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 instead you are still using a very old 4.3 version, purchased up to 23 Apr 2006, the license codes need to be upgraded to the 5.x version. Simply right-click the Printfil's trayed icon, choose "Search for updates" and the AutoUpdate program will guide you further.

If you've questions, comments, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to get back to me.

Kind regards,

Davide Guolo
