From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

PrimoPDF is a freeware program that creates a PDF file from Microsoft Windows documents. It works by as a printer driver on a Windows system. It does not present the user with advertisements.[1] PrimoPDF is developed by the same company that develops the commercial Nitro PDF software.

PrimoPDF requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. When the program runs, it connects with each time it prints. This can be stopped with a firewall, or by disabling automatic updates within the program settings. It does a good job of creating PDFs, using the Ghostscript file format converter and RedMon (software) printer redirection software.
