Printer Server registry settings
Since Ver. 6.30, eDocPrinter supports a “printer server” mode for accepting printing jobs
from other computers, which may not have eDocPrinter installed. It requires intranet or
internet server license (per-server).
eDocPrinter PDF Pro is a native Windows printer driver with Office-addin support for
creating PDF files on local or network file systems. For fully functioning with support of
prompting UI and Office addin interactions, it is required to install eDocPrinter PDF Pro
driver on necessary machines locally.
The new printer server mode is designed for special purpose usage, which will do the
printing and post-processing in the server. However, under this server mode,
It does NOT support prompting SaveAs dialog or similar UI dialogs.
It does NOT support Office-addins for internal links, cross references, or headings-
It does NOT support launching PDF readers or Email clients in clients.
It does NOT support Drag2PDF.
As a result, it may not be suitable for ordinary customers.
Administrator have to add or set extra printer instances by “PropAdm” or “Add New
Printer” shortcut to enable printer server mode in addition to sharing the printer instance
by printer control panel. These actions will enable “print server” mode for the
eDocPrinter instances (profiles).
Internally, these steps will attach the “eDocPDF” printer processor and add a registry
PrinterServerMode under HKLM\SOFTWARE\ITEKSOFT\eDocPrinter\PDF\5.0\
Profiles\“PrinterName”, where “PrinterName” is the printer profile name. Currently,
mode “1” is available for PrinterSeverMode. Mode “1” representing the printer instance
will work under printer server mode. Printer server mode does not support prompting UI
(e.g. SaveAs dialog) because the printing jobs are processed all in the server side. By
default, it automatically generates the filename and saves the PDF into the user’s My
Documents folder. And it does not launch PDF reader. Usually the user’s context is
determined by the logon session or printer connection session in the active directory.
