Installing PDFCreator

PDFCreator is a very lightweight application. If your machine is able to run a modern Windows OS without troubles, it should be able to run PDFCreator. Find more detailed system requirements and installation guides below.


With the release of PDFCreator 4.0.0, the Setup.exe does not support any command line parameters.
We strongly suggest using the MSI Installer if you’d like to deploy PDFCreator Professional or Terminal Server.
The legacy setup is available until June 2020 in the Download Section on our website.
