When creating a PDF file, I'm asked to disable the spooler for the Printfil printer

When creating a PDF file with Printfil, if the computer or the source DOS program is particularly slow, sometimes Printfil may show an alert message suggesting to disable the spooler for the Printfil virtual printer.

This video shows how to do it in Windows 10, but the process is very similar in earlier Windows versions.

Let's go:

  • Go to Start -> Settings
  • Click Devices -> Printers and Scanners
  • Manage the Printfil virtual printer
  • In Printer properties -> Advanced ...
  • ... select: Print directly to the printer (if available)
    or at least: Start printing immediately
