Dear Client,

I'm pleased to announce to you the new Printfil 5.29 release.

What's new:

  • Now you can automatically create a PrintWin virtual printer that tries to capture the TEXT of Windows print jobs.
    This is useful to make Printfil capture data from legacy programs that need a Windows printer driver installed in the Control Panel but cannot drive the newest printers (some Terminal Emulator programs for example) or to extract the text from Windows print jobs (statements, invoices, etc.)

  • If DOSBox is installed on the machine, now you can easily configure it to capture all ports (LPT and COM) through Printfil at once.
    You just have to right-click the Printfil trayed icon and choose Configuration -> DOSBox: Capture Port: All

  • Added support for the latest GhostScript/GhostPCL 10 version, for faster creation of PDF files, and faster management of print jobs when the PCL printing engine is used

  • Some other minor improvements

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,

Andrea Guolo
