    We use PrimoPDF. It just installs as a printer so you can hit print in most apps and it turns it into a PDF instead of a had copy.

    My vote for PrimoPDF. It's so easy to install, even our teachers can do it, and the results are fine.

    My vote would be SourceForge.net: PDFCreator - just to be different

    Any similar, free, solution for Windows Print Server?

    I think if you install the sourceforge one on your print server it understands that it's a network printer and does the right thing.

    Ahhh that would be clever.

    I tried sharing the PDFCreator installed on my laptop with my technician, that didn't work.

    I'll try installing it on the Print Server

    EDIT: SourceForge.net: - Very Nice

    Latest Version = 0.9.5 (That's an old thread, but still valid)

    PDF Creator for me as well, I must set it up on a server actually as we've been waiting for that, not that putting the MSI out to every PC is hard work really
