Free eXPert PDF Pro 6!

Update: This promo seems to be over now. Sorry for those that missed it! Feel free to grab eXPert PDF Pro 5 – it is still available for free.

As I am sure most dotTechies have noticed, eXPert PDF Pro 5 has been a “Best Freebie” on dotTech for a very long time now. Although in the past there was limited success in some people being able to update to eXPert PDF Pro 6, for the most part dotTechies had to stick with eXPert PDF Pro 5. Now, however, everyone can get eXPert PDF Pro 6 (the latest version) for free!

Since eXPert PDF Pro has been featured on dotTech before, I am sure most dotTechies already know it is a fully featured PDF creator and editor; it also supports batch creation, PDF to Word conversions, and watermarking of PDFs. However for those that don’t know, here are all the features of eXPert PDF Pro 6 as per the developer:

Unfortunately I don’t know exactly what are the differences between eXPert PDF Pro 5 and eXPert PDF Pro 6. However, I do know eXPert PDF Pro 6 now supports 64-bit machines (rejoice 64-bit users). That said, to get eXPert PDF Pro 6 for free, follow these simple directions:

Version being given out for free: v6.31

Free updates: Yes! (Probably only minor updates only, though)

Support OS: Windows 2000 and higher (32-bit and 64-bit)

Download size: Two separate downloads of 25 MB and 24 MB each

The registration page is in Italian. If you don’t understand Italian, here is a rough translation:

  • After you have submitted the registration form, your free eXPert PDF Pro 6 license code will be given to you:

Keep this license key in a safe place because you will need it very soon. (It is also e-mailed to you to the e-mail you registered with.)

  • Download both the Italian and English versions (Italian download | English download) of eXPert PDF Pro 6. You need both versions because the license key will only work in the Italian version and non-Italian speaking dotTechies can convert eXPert PDF Pro 6 to English using the English version (after they have installed and registered the Italian version).
  • After the downloads finish, run the Italian version installer (eXPertPDF_V6-ITA.exe) and install eXPert PDF Pro 6. During installation you will be asked to enter the license key you received earlier. If you don’t understand Italian, here is a step-by-step guide on how to install eXPert PDF Pro 6 (just follow the arrows =D):

  • After you have installed the Italian version of eXPert PDF Pro 6, the program should start up automatically and ask for you to check for updates. Click “Cancel”…

…and close any open eXPert PDF Pro 6 windows.

  • Run the English installer (eXPertPDF_V6-ENG.exe). You will be asked to either “Repair” or “Remove” the program. Select “Repair”:

  • Enjoy! You now have a fully functioning, registered copy of eXPert PDF Pro 6 (in English)! (After everything has been installed, be sure to run eXPert PDF Pro Editor, go to “Tools” -> “Check for updates” and download any updates available; there are updates available.)

If you have any trouble getting eXPert PDF Pro 6 for free, post below and I will try to help.

Thanks LizardMan!

    still working!!!

    i followed mike’s (comment # 102) google link to get regn key, downloaded italian version from mediafire, installed it with Ashraf’s directions, downloaded eng version from Ashraf’s link and installed eng version with repair option, and then updated. i am using 6.32 now. yeh!

    now, i am feeling like being a true dottechie…long live free SW…

  5. mike

    Still working if you download the Italian version Expert PDF 6.2 which works with the key from the promo email you received. Your prompted to enter the key during the install(it auto populates “Microsoft” as the user). The newer download ver. 6.3 from the FTP link does not prompt for the license key.

    Then followed http://dottech.org/freebies/17294/comment-page-2#comment-44208
    you don’t need to install the English version to get an English version of expertpdf. All you need to do is to go the program folder and in delete all the files in the Resources sub folder. If you have problems deleting these files. Stop the expert pdf printer from the task manager and then delete the files. After that the program will be in English.

  6. Sub

    I’ve managed to get a registration code today.

    I lost my serial when I re-installed windows, and have successfully downloaded all necessary files, and re-registered. Perhaps they have my details from before?

    I’m now running eXPert PDF Pro v6.31, after updates.
     

  7. Mike

    @ami: Actually, the original promotion was not a waste, it just ended relatively quickly, without notice (at least to us here).  I grabbed the program in time and it installed just fine on my Win7 64-bit system, including with Ashraf’s hacks.
     
    Sorry that you missed it–

  8. RobCr

    @Carol:
    Perhaps a PDF printer (app that sends your prints to PDF file, instead of a printer) would do the trick ?
    I have DoPDF as my default printer, and it can ‘print’ an excel file to a PDF file.
    If you don’t wish to install that program, just to try it out, you could email me an Excel file, and I will convert it, and send it back to you, for your perusal.
    My email is –
    BobbyScotland  AT  gmail  DOT  com
    The highest (most recent) version of Excel that I can run is 2002, so if your file is more recent, can you save it as an earlier version.
     

  9. ami

    What a waste of time and bandwith,this promotion was.first, version 6 was not available for various reasons, now version 5 cant register.Please take it off.When it works bring it back.

  10. RobCr

    @Trev:
    Wouldn’t it be great if we could persuade Ashraf to have a Members page, only accessible by other members.
    In there we could store some details about ourselves, and for those that choose, they could also store their email addresses.
    Or we could have a feature to send private messages, like some forums. Probably that would be harder than my first suggestion, so I would go for the first.

  11. Trev

    @RobCr: Of course, thanks for reminding me.

    Yes the Italian version is now v6.3 instead of v6.2,, so it looks like the install over will not work now.
    I tried googling for Italian v6.2 but no luck.
    The English version is still 6.2.

  12. John Wehlitz

    Installed and activated the Italian version with no problem, but when I ran the English installer and chose repair, it said that the license number had already been registered; and left me with no version installed. It doesn’t even show up in add/remove programs.
    Tried running the Italian installer again, but got the same error (although in Italian) and still not even a program to uninstall.

  13. Trev

    @Taz: …The only problem is the IT version installer was 6.30..

    Hey Asraf has the Italian version changed?

    I got the Reg Key early.
    Just downloaded the 2 programs, but thery are not telling me fully which vesions they are only v6, not even at the beginning of install.
    I dont want to install them all the way to find out if its not going to work.
    Maybe i will have to.

  14. Doru

    All is in english.Nothing in italian.Version 6.31 is not a trial version.Is a free update.For me everythink work Ok.Update will be make,only after replace italian version with english version.You must to not accept something when you install italian version.

  15. Taz

    Well….That didn’t work so hot. When I started  the program it updated automatically from 6.30 to 6.31. What I wound up with is a 6.31 TRIAL version with some stuff in EN and some in IT!!
    I think I’ll just bag it and go back to Version 5. This isn’t worth the hassle. Besides, I’m a little uncomfortable with the whole ethics issue anyway. If you decide to try it, I hope your luck is better than mine!!
    Taz
     

  16. Taz

    OK…Uh…Well I downloaded the 2 installs, one Italian the other English from the links I found. The only problem is the IT version installer was 6.30 and the EN version was 6.20, so the EN install crapped out. So….now I’ll try Mohamed Hassan’s idea to convert the IT version and start searching for an EN version of the help file. I’ll post later how that works out.

  17. Taz

    Looks like the Pro 6 free deal expired. I found the links and serial number on other sites, but I’m not comfortable listing them here since it may be unethical. There are still links for Pro 5 available. Also it seems there is either a new release in the U.S. called Lightning PDF Professional or they just renamed it. Elsewhere it’s still eXPert PDF Pro. Don’t be fooled by a product called Lighting PDF Printer which is a completely different product.

  18. Guy

    The link to the Italian verson has been taken down from the FTP site.  Can someone pls post a working link to the Italian version installer.  Or, if you already downloaded it, pls send it via email?

  19. Doru

    Ashraf,please tell me ,when i will know if i win licence for Snowfox dvd ripper&converter?.I’m boring to waiting so much.Also for Al Zip 8 i”m waiting and i”m waiting and nothing.I like expert pdf pro 6 because is working from more days.Version 5 it was working only 1 day and stopped.Now i have a good program.Thank.

  20. mukhi

    @RobCr:
    thanks for your effort. well, i like openoffice (in my ubuntu) and yes, it has built-in PDF feature, however, OO is still not as good as MS office just like other PDF makers are not as good as adobe’s. if you would be in academic environment like me, you would know what i am saying! so far MSO and adobe PDF give the best results in creating a report containing pics, tables, figs, etc. sometime other companies offer more features (like nitro PDF pro offers some features not offered by adobe), but the problem is they fail at some critical point which is disappointing.
    for example, foxit reader is faster than adobePDF  reader, but foxit fails to display some PDF properly.
    these two free office products, say, OO and google docs are really nice, but still they have long way to go.

  21. AlanR

    I have documents that were “red-lined” with extensive text correction mark-ups and comments etc. originally from a genuine Adobe product. These edits are correctly revealed when viewed using the free Adobe Reader.
    Regrettably, cannot say the same for eXPert PDF which, accordingly only gets a 1/5 provisional rating from me.
    The whole feel just does not seem right compared to the (expensive) Adobe suite. Even alternatives like Foxonic Pro (sometimes available as a giveaway) and PDF995 seem more comfortable to use IMHO.
    Sadly then, a thumbs down from me for this one. :(

  22. Chet

    I could not get the registration page to load.  It keeps bringing me to the United States home page. I have tried both IE and FF.

    Visit the Avanquest eXPert PDF Pro 6 promotion page and register:

    http://register.avanquest.com/ABSOFT/produits/Promotion/enregistrement_presse/register_cov_gd.cfm?idcgd=487

    I have the program downloaded in Italian and English. I just can’t register. Can someone post a working registration link or let me know where I can get a serial.

    Thank you.

  23. V. C. Mac

    @Mohamed Hassan: I am a Mac use running Microsoft XP on my PowerBook.  I am still having problems deleting these files. Could you please show me how to “Stop the expert pdf printer from the task manager and then delete the files”.  Thanks a million!

  24. Mike

    @Mary:  The instructions/tweaks as to how to avoid eXPert PDF always being and staying on worked just fine on my Win7 64-bit system. 

    First, just use a program start-up manager (such as AnVir or Soluto) and turn eXPert PDF off–that is, prevent it from starting up when you start Windows.

    Second, you need to edit your Windows Registry so that the specified eXPert PDF file does not turn on and stay around when you exit the eXPert PDF program.  Although editing the Registry can seem scary, this was very easy to do.  Again, I think that the instructions are pretty complete as to this.

    Perhaps try again?  Good luck–

  25. Vivek Krishnan

    There should be a slight change in the instructions in the article.
    As noted by Mr. Hassan, removing the Resources subfolder from the Program installed location, will revert the application to English. But the help file will still be in Italian! This can be a hiccup for newbies.
    So, I would recommend installation of the English version (on top of the Italian version, which works with the Italian-version serial key as described in the article).
    When we finish the installation of the Italian version, it will prompt to run the program and add a desktop shortcut. This will be immediately followed by a LiveUpdate, which upgraded the application to version 6.31 (as of now).
    DO NOT DO THE LIVEUPDATE!
    When you try to install the English version later, it will fail, as that installer contains the 6.20 version, which cannot overwrite the higher version.
    Instead, cancel the LiveUpdate after installing the Italian version. Then install the English version (so you get the English help files etc.) and you can later do a LiveUpdate at your convenience.
    Happy PDFing ! Thanks to Ashraf for this wonderful find. :-)

    @mukhi:
    I have posted a reply for you, but it may take some time to appear, as it contained a link, which usually triggers the post being held back until it can be moderated.
    So in case you are in a hurry, I am posting this, without a link.
    Instead of the link do a Google for –
    dime to get the feature, just download OpenOffice
    And it should be the top hit.
    Here is what I posted to you (but is awaiting moderation) –
    I Googled, and found this web page where someone asked if there was a MS Add In for Word 2003 –
    This was one response –
    You won’t find MS adding any features to Office 2003, but you don’t have to spend a dime to get the feature, just download OpenOffice.org and you’ll have it. I started off running both just for that feature in OOo, but now at home I just run OpenOffice.

    Just downloaded again for my laptop and went through the registration process again…I have two totally different Serial numbers…looks like they changed things up – good for them

  29. Clodmore

    Ashraf,

    Thanks for letting us know about this offer and for the detailed instructions.  I had tried to install Version 5 on my main computer a number of times, but the install would always fail.  When Version 6 encountered a similar problem, I finally realized it had to be my system.  I deleted most pdf print drivers and programs, etc. and all eXpert PDF links and files, cleaned the registry with JV Powertools (another dotTech gift) and installed Version 6 easily.  Not only did it install, the program works and the upgrade worked as well!

    Thank you so much for this gift!

  30. Jeanjean

    Hi,

    I had the same problem that David (post 35) on XP sp3.
    I followed the procedure of Mohamed Hassan (post 52) and everything works perfectly in English (after an update for V 6.31 in Italian).
    Thanks to all for sharing this.

  31. mukhi

    how does it compare to adobe pdf in terms of creating a good PDF from MS word? i find many free pdf creators including dopdf is not good for making pdf of complex word files (having picture, complex tables, etc).

  32. Mohamed Hassan

    Thanks for let us know this great offer.
    By the way you don’t need to install the English version to get an English version of expertpdf. All you need to do is to go the program folder and in delete all the files in the Resources sub folder. If you have problems deleting these files. Stop the expert pdf printer from the task manager and then delete the files. After that the program will be in English.
    Enjoy…

  33. RobCr

    @janet:
    Thanks for that.
    I too have settled on that scenario.
     
    The authors of PDF software (all the ones that I have tried) default to open with the hand mouse cursor. Which then moves the document when you try to do something.
    Can I mumble/mutter about that.

  34. janet

    @RobCr:

    I keep PDF-XChange viewer as my default viewer AND much prefer it for markups/and highlighting because I find it much more aesthetic for these functions. I use eXPert PDF for editing and batch creation, which PDF-XChange viewer does not do.

  35. Mary

    ASHRAF,
    I’m also very annoy at this program starting up on boot.  I know you mention you have a 32 bit, however, I’m wondering if you or this community can tell me how to turn off eXPert PDF from starting at boot for 64 bit.  I using Windows Vista.  Please help if you can. 
    I read below and follow instruction but was not the same steps. 

    How To: Fix some eXPert PDF Pro annoyances (prevent PDF Printer from starting on boot and turn it off automatically when you are done using it) to make a few tweaks to eXPert PDF Pro.

  36. John

    @Home User: Many thanks for that suggestion and help, I’m now able to say that after following your instructions I’m the proud owner of eXPert PDF Pro 6. The programme downloaded without a hitch.


    @Ashraf: Hi Ashraf, whatever problems I had yesterday with admin rights and not being able to delete folders etc, today on boot up I was able to delete the original folder and start again without any of yesterdays problems. Who knows maybe it’s an XP thing, but after following Home Users suggestion it downloaded without yesterdays problems, so again thanks for the opportunity to own this programme Ashraf.
     
    Cheers
    John

  37. DrLongBear

    Ashraf, it is wonderful to have a community full of ideas for exchanging…IE 8 would not work on my rig, FF would, also. Got the key and I want to thank you for sharing this giveaway with us…

  38. Mike

    Many thanks for the software offer!  And finally, the software works on 64-bit systems–so nice to see and have!
     
    The only glitches I had with the install:
     
    — The registration sign-up link was not working on IE for me; ran fine on FF, though.
     
    —  The install reset the default for my pdf files (don’t you just hate when misbehaving programs do that?!?).  Humorously, it reset the default to Nitro PDF Professional (which I have), not to itself.  Easily reversed.

  39. david

    Does uninstalling and reinstalling possibly work?
    There were some additional components it asked about installing in the Italian version and I chose to install which I figured may have been needed.

  40. david

    Followed directions installed italian and got key to work but upon trying to install english it tells me I have another earlier version if I remember right that needs uninstalled. I do not get the repair screen option.

    Win 7 64 bit

  41. Mr.Dave

    Thanks very much for this upgrade to version 6.  I used version5 almost every day to save web pages as .Pdf files for later use.  I really like how I can print a bunch of different things and save them all as one file.  I haven’t used the editor much, but it seemed to be an easy way to delete things that aren’t needed and add markups, great for deleting the “empty” pages you often get when printing from the web!
    Anyway, looking forward to using version 6.  It installed and “repaired” to the English version.  I was worried that the icons in the upper-right corner were not visible – I could hover the mouse in that area and see a tool-tip for “Save to PDF”, “Add Watermark”, etc., but that was annoying and some of these do NOT appear in the menus for some reason….  Anyway, running the update to get from 6.20 to 6.30 fixed all that.  I’m happy!  I also used your suggestions to remove it from startup and shut it down when finished – if it takes too long to print now I can always reverse these steps.  So thanks for getting my Sunday off to a great start!

  42. RobCr

    @sam:
    It is interesting that you posted your serial number.
    Because it is also my serial number.
    I bet we all have the same Serial number.
     
    Did you remember to paste that into the Italian program, before installing the English one ?

  43. janet

    1. If you do the Quick Install, IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY INSTALL ON C DRIVE!!!!!! Use CUSTOM if you want it on a different drive!

    2. If you have WinPatrol or AnVir TaskManager, they will give you the option to opt out of the background issue and the startup issue during installation.

  44. PapyLuc

    Everything is perfect (thanks to your explanation of A to Z).
    +(prevent PDF Printer from starting on boot and turn it off automatically when you are done using it)
    Bravo & Merci.
     

  45. RobCr

    @Derek: and others,
    I am trying the program in Windows 7

    If you wish an easy (but not as permanent) way, you could run msconfig, and untick the entry called  vspdfprsrv.exe
    You can jump over the next paragraph, as it is just me ranting about MS again.

    <Rant begins>
    First you go to the Run box (oops, sorry MS got rid of that).
    Then you type msconfig and run it (oops, MS does not call it that anymore)
    Then after using the Help System (which has changed, and is not as good as it was), you then work out that it is called ‘System Configuration’.
    After you find that(good luck) in the Start Menu, in Administrative Tools, you may be tempted to drag that to the Desktop, for future easy access ?
    Don’t do that with the Left mouse button, as Win7 will not let you put it back.
    Presumably if I had used the Right mouse button, then mine would be in two places, instead of only one place (my desktop), mutter, mutter.
    <Rant ends>

    In ‘System Configuration’ Startup Tab, you can untick vspdfprsrv.exe
    I have done that, and restarted Win7, and it is still unticked.

    If you then take actions that reset that to auto start, then you can use the desktop shortcut to easily, untick it.
    (I will have to read Ashraf’s earlier article, to judge how often, the unticking would be required.)

    Rob
     

  46. Derek

    Hi Ashraf, thanks for great article and programme. Installed and working on my Win7 64bit system but when I try to mod the registry for the ‘ Fix some eXPert PDF Pro annoyances’ there are no entries under PDFprinter\Options other than (Default). Any advice would be most welcome.

  47. RobCr

    PS While I am whinging.
    MS should be shot for introducing the ‘Ribbon’
    eXPert PDF (and many others), have copied the concept.
    It is occupying one third of my vertical viewing area, and there appears to be no way to hide it, nor to revert to Classic menus.
    If I am correct, and it cannot be hidden, then no one has to answer my questions, regarding using it as a viewer, as I definitely won’t be.
    Some might say, Rob, you can use the F11 key
    I always use ‘fit to width’, and the F11 mode reverts to normal width.
    A pox upon MS, for starting that arrogant, inconsiderate trend.

  48. Ian

    Ashraf, incredibly useful and helpful.  Thank you so much for sharing this and so much other information.  I love your site and read every review (from you and the other popular contributors, such as Locutus, Giovanni, and others…)  Certainly has inspired me to donate for your excellent efforts and hope it inspires others to do the same.  Thanks again.

  49. Home User

    @Ashraf: Thanks for another great program and all your help!!!
    @John: I am also running XP SP3. Had the same problem with trying to cancel out of the update. Not sure why? What I did was uninstall everything and tried Ashraf’s instructions except for “After you have installed the Italian version of eXPert PDF Pro 6, the program should start up automatically and ask for you to check for updates. Click “Cancel”…” . I unchecked the top box which is to automatically start up the program after install and only checked the lower box to place shortcuts on the desktop. I never ran the Italian version after install. Then I ran the english install for repairs. Then I ran updates. Worked like a charm. Not sure if this will work for you but it did for me. Hope you get it working!

  50. DrLongBear

    I’ve been trying to get onto the registration page since 8:30 PM, Alaska time…page spins out…

    This is a great program and I’ve been looking for a good PDF editor and creator…this would be great. I will keep trying to get onto their web site.

    Thanks Ashraf – yet another good program op…

  51. RobCr

    Thanks Ashraf,
    I have downloaded, translated, and updated.

    Definition for ‘Look a gift horse in the mouth’
    An ungrateful bast..d who takes the gift and then complains about things.
    1) The world should be told to have an ‘English’ button on their web sites.
    (Especially France, as they are too smug about their language.)
    2) The enlargeable images on dotTech, are a bit fiddly for ‘printing’.

    My Printer’s ink, dried up a long time ago, so I just use doPDf instead.
    The ‘start up’ that Ashraf mentions (for turning off), does that do the same thing ?
    Would I be better off using eXPerts instead ?

    I currently use PDF-XChange viewer, and sometimes use it’s markup (highlight) feature.
    Would I be better off, making today’s offering my default viewer ?
    (And I am guessing it would be better at doing my highlighting etc ?)
    Thanks,
    Rob

    The English installer “repaired” my Italian version, but I made sure the first tick on the last installer screen was un-ticked (it’s ‘Run ExpertPDF” or something like that).

    Leave the second tick, it’s the Desktop Icon option…

    @Ashraf: OK I’m still non the wiser, I tried reinstalling the It version and am now getting those same errors.
    I have tried deleting the entire folder “Visagesoft” in my program files where the sub folder eXpert PDF6 was created. Oddly the two files that I’m getting the error messages for are in that sub folder. I have tried deleting them but get the message “access denied” again so therefore cannot delete the folder and start again.
     
    I can remember that when the It version installed and opened automatically and then I tried to close it to run the En version, I had trouble closing the It version. Some message came up which was of course in Italian and I could not read, but eventually closed I got it closed and proceeded with the En installation. Whether I unknowingly did something then I don’t know.
    Cheers

    I will have another go tomorrow after I reboot.

    G’day Ashraf,thanks for a great freebie.The downloads(Italian & English) and the installations went well, as directed BUT instead of version:6.31 as stated I found I had version:6.20.400.0. I followed the directions to the letter, have you any idea what would have caused the version change?

    Hi Ashraf,
    Thanks for all your hard work and great reviews, I don’t download too much without looking for your review first.
    However I have had a problem trying to get this programme up and running in the English version.
    The Italian version downloaded and ran without problem. I followed as per your instructions with the English download but got a couple of errors during the “repair” phase. I hit retry a couple of times but to no avail, and then eventually hit ignore, and the “repair” continued until completion.
    I cannot for whatever reason open the programme and get an error message stating that such and such is missing and access denied.
    I have saved a couple of the images if you want to look at them to get some idea of what it’s telling you. Failing that I could always try reinstalling the It version again and starting from scratch.
    Cheers
    John
