As a universal format, the PDF document is the best way to share information in a way that anyone can view without fear of distorted fonts or layouts. But you may have come across Windows applications that don’t have an option of printing as PDF. Well, that’s no longer a problem with today’s discount software promotion, PDF Writer!

PDF Writer lets you create PDF documents from any Windows program that has a print function. With PDF Writer, you’ll be able to build PDF output files from Microsoft Office, or any application, yielding 100% industry-standard files viewable across all platforms. What’s more, you can use PDF Writer to fill out forms in PDF format, sign them with digital signatures, and even restrict editing, printing, or even access if you lock it down with a password!

Need to create multiple PDF files? Not a problem when you use PDF Writer, which offers a convenient batch processing feature. You can even annotate PDF files, add highlights, and search for specific text within the document!

Please note folks, the application can merge and split PDF files and it can also add text or images as watermarks.

Dominik Holenstein Many thanks for this great offer!

I have just ordered one licence of PDF Writer and tried to install it but it fails with this error message "Redistributable was not installed!". The only option provided is "Cancel Installation".

What can I do?

Thank you.

Constantin Florea @Dominik Holenstein, I have just contacted the vendor regarding the issue you mention.

Idriys User I installed the trial. Got a message that stated a dll was missing so I couldn't run it: MSVCR.dll. Any solutions out there?

PDF Pro 10 Hi Dominik, thank you for your message. I am looking into this right now and will get back to you. The installer does download additional files, so it is possible that either our server connection was lost, or your firewall blocked the download. I will check it and report back to you

PDF Pro 10 I just tried to reinstall PDF Writer again, and it seemed to work for me. Idriys and Dominik, could you either post here or send a support request with the following information?

- where did the error occur (during installation or after the installation)?
- was it possible your firewall blocked the internet connection, or your antivirus deleted a file? What antivirus are you using?

PDF Pro 10 I am running Avira to see if it is flagging anything, and will report back here. Otherwise, I will send this issue to our developers who will respond by tomorrow.

Idriys User Okay. I hope I don't miss the deal.

PDF Pro 10 Don't worry, I will make sure you get the deal if we are able to fix it. Thanks again for understanding!

PDF Pro 10 Hi Idriys,
I ran Avira and it didn't find anything nor did Avira remove any files. Please submit a support request with your email so that we can follow up with you on this issue here. If you can also provide any screenshots and additional information (operating system etc.), this will help our developers troubleshoot:

Randal H. I also tried to install PDF Writer; received the same error message as
Idriys User, that is msvcr120.dll missing. Did a search on my system for that file and found it is part of several different programs. Copied it from another folder (couple of different ones) to PDF Writer folder, PDF Writer stilll didn't start but gave a different error message. I don't know if all msvcr120.dll files contain the same info.
Tried the installer from the website, got same error message. Tried the installer for PDF Writer Pro; it installed and started up just fine.
And I turned off my firewall for the install. : )

PDF Pro 10 Hi Randal, thanks for the feedback. Just for a bit more information: we actually have 2 separate builds of PDF Writer on the website. the one on the homepage is a white label software that we have licensed from a different publisher. The one on this promotion is an application that we developed in-house.

The main advantage is that we will be actively supporting bug fixes and new feature development based on feedback we receive from reviews like the one you've sent, which is not possible with our former build. We just launched the new application a few days ago and are still ironing out a few bugs. If you could submit a support request with screenshots and information on your system, this will help us identify the problem and follow up with your case directly.


Thanks for your patience!

Randal H. Hello. I decided to follow through on your request and performed install of PDF Writer similar to what I did originally. I was collecting screen captures from the time install completed, got the same "missing MSVCR120.dll" message. Took a snip of PDF Writer install folder, no "MSVCR120.dll" present in the folder (I assumed that that is where it should be, not knowing for sure). I fired up "Search Everything" for existing "MSVCR120.dll" and copied the one with the newest date (which is part of EssentialPIM) into the PDF Writer program folder in Program Files (X86). Seems to have been a better choice as PDF Writer now works. Seems your program download is just missing the noted library file.

PDF Pro 10 Hi Randal, thanks for the heads up and all the help! I have passed along your comments and I think we should have a new build out within 1-2 days. If you send over the screenshots / os info, I'll make sure to pass along this additional information to our developers in case it helps them.

Chris Deal Breaker: Online license activation is required with a hardware footprint, and 1 installation per footprint.
May 10 2017 at 12:22am Copy Link
PDF Pro 10 Hi Chris,
If you change computers, we reset the hardware footprint, so you don't need a separate key if you change hard disks or computers, for instance.

In terms of how many computers the software will work on concurrently, we started off with 1. If others feel strongly about this, we can up it to 2 or 3 if you guys think it would be more fair.

Randal H. * The fine print says "Each license allows installation on a single computer and a laptop.
* Transfer of a license to another owned computer is allowed.
* Online license activation is required with a hardware footprint, and 1 installation per footprint"

These appear to conflict. : )

PDF Pro 10 Hi Randal,

The way we do this is if you want to want to transfer to another computer, our customer support "resets" the license key so that it can be reused on a different machine instead of having to send a separate key.

That said, we'll make sure a license key can be activated on 2 machines at the same time, in the future (might take a few days to implement this change).

Philippe Yeung Why the website for PDF writer is non-existent?

PDF Pro 10 Hi Philippe,
the website is up?

or the link to this particular build:

han tuah I try to purchase the PDF writer. the price is printed RM38. i do not want the CD backup. WHen i want to pay by credit card, the price has gone up to RM129 not RM38 I try to add the CD backup which is RM59 still it cannot add up to RM129. Your system will not change though i only want the program for RM38. it insists to charge me RM129. I am from Malaysia. With the exchange rate it still cannot add up to RM129 for US8.99
this is a rip off

PDF Pro 10 Hi Han,

You should have the option to deselect the CD backup on the checkout. I think almost all of the orders that came in from this promotion do not include the CD backup in the order. Kindly let me know if you're still having trouble and send a support request, I can then send a custom order without the CD on it for you

Jim Willis I just completed my order & tried to install this & I got a message 'server down - try again later'.
Is this server only available from 8am to 5pm?
Or is it 9 to 4?
You really have to get your act together!
Pretty LAME & i am NOT HAPPY!

PDF Pro 10 Hi Jim, We'll look into this to figure out what's going on. Thanks for bringing it to our attention
PDF Pro Limited - May 11 2017 at 8:38am Copy Link
Jim Willis Hi PDF Pro 10 - thanks for the reply.
To anyone reading these comments, PDF Pro sent me an email to follow-up
on my install problem, and they sent it within about 16 hrs. of my posting my
comment here.
That's the good news.
Unfortunately, they're going on holiday & won't be back until
the 15th.
Oh well, hopefully they can get things fixed then.
