Free eXPert PDF 5 Pro!

Some time ago I posted about how you can get eXPert PDF 4 Pro for free [1]. Then I posted about how you can upgrade to eXPert PDF 6 Pro for free [2]. However the upgrade to eXPert PDF 6 Pro was kind of tricky and many people are unable to do it properly. Well for the people who are unable to get eXPert PDF 6 Pro for free, you can now grab eXPert PDF 5 Pro (for free of course… duh =D). Unlike the procedure to get eXPert PDF 6 Pro, the procedure to get eXPert PDF 5 Pro is simple, straightforward and guaranteed to work (or your money back).

For those that don’t know what eXPert PDF 5 Pro is, here is a quick description of what eXPert PDF 5 Pro can do:

So how to get eXPert PDF 5 Pro?

NOTE: eXPert PDF 5 Pro is not supported on 64-bit machines. Sorry!

UPDATE 8/9/09: There is now a direct English version of eXPert PDF 5 Pro. Therefore you don’t need to follow any of the directions below since they are about how to get the German version and turn it in to English. Just download the English version from the promotion page [5] (click here [5]). You will need to register if you don’t have an Avanquest account already.

After you have eXPert PDF consider reading 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). [6]




Highlight and copy the serial key (it will also be emailed to you) and click on “Downloaden” to start download eXPert PDF 5 Pro.

NOTE: The download for eXPert PDF 5 Pro was extremely slow for me (took about an hour to download) so don’t be surprised if you get a slow download speed.


Click on “eXPert PDF 5 Installieren”

NOTE: If you have a previous version of eXPert PDF installed, you may be asked to uninstall it first. Do so.


You will be asked something like “Are you sure you want to exit?”. Click “Yes”.
