Yep...

We followed the KB package number to recapture the whole process.

There are a number of issues with using a repackager to install a print queue, so here was the solution that I have implemented, which you can either integrate into a RIS install or develop an msi to install.

1. Download CuteWriter from www.cutepdf.com.

2. Start the installation to unpack the zipped files.

3. Copy the source files from your temp folder, before the installation.

4. Copy cpwmon2k.dll and cpwsave.exe to %systemroot%\system32.

5. Create the following registry entries.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\CutePDF Writer Monitor]
"Driver"="cpwmon2k.dll"
"CPW2:"="CutePDF Writer"

6. Restart the spool service

NET STOP SPOOLER
NET START SPOOLER

7. Using notepad create a file called cutepdf.inf and add the following entries. This will enable you install the printer via either the command line or the Add/Remote Printer Wizard. Save the file to the 'Driver' folder which was unpacked earlier.

[Version]
Signature="$Windows NT$"
Provider="CutePDF"
ClassGUID={4D36E979-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Class=Printer

[PortMonitors]
"CutePDF Writer Monitor" = CutePDFWriterMonitor

[CutePDFWriterMonitor]
CopyFiles = @CPWMON2K.DLL
PortMonitorDll = CPWMON2K.DLL

[Manufacturer]
"CutePDF"

[CutePDF]
"CutePDF Writer" = CUTEPDF.PPD, Cute_PDF_Writer

[CUTEPDF.PPD]
CopyFiles=@CUTEPDFW.PPD,PSCRIPT
DataSection=PSCRIPT_DATA
DataFile=CUTEPDFW.PPD

[PSCRIPT]
PSCRIPT5.DLL
PS5UI.DLL
PSCRIPT.HLP
PSCRIPT.NTF

[PSCRIPT_DATA]
DriverFile=PSCRIPT5.DLL
ConfigFile=PS5UI.DLL
HelpFile=PSCRIPT.HLP

[DestinationDirs]
DefaultDestDir=66000

[SourceDisksNames.x86]
1 = "CutePDF",,,""

[SourceDisksFiles]
CPWMON2K.DLL = 1
CUTEPDFW.PPD = 1
PS5UI.DLL = 1
PSCRIPT.HLP = 1
PSCRIPT.NTF = 1
PSCRIPT5.DLL = 1

8. Run the following command to automatically install the print queue. The /b parameter can be changed to provide the print queue with a name of your choice. The /f parameter can be configured with a full pathname to the .inf file if the command is run from another directory.

rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /if /b "CutePDF Writer" /f cutepdf.inf /r "CPW2:" /m "CutePDF Writer"

your need to put a IE Task kill to get rid of the IE box that cutepdf launches at the end.

like...

A cleaner way to get rid of the browser popup advert is to use the following taskkill command:

taskkill /FI "WINDOWTITLE eq CutePDF*"

This will leave all existing Explorer/Firefox windows open & only close the popup.

if you have problems give me a shout and I will provide you with a MSI

PDFCreator is a MSI already.

Well everyone to their own.

I thought this was easy to re-package and I am new to it. The guide in the KB Package article is very easy to understand.

Its more fun and you learn more by actually going the harder route.

I am going to check out PDFCreater as well just in case.

Hi all,

Here's a new guy having trouble to get CutePDF Writer 2.8.0 to work after making an msi installation of it.
I have win7 and uses WPS8.
The msi seems to work fine. The printer gets installed but when I send a printjob to it nothing happens.
No error, no PDF file, nothing. Any clues what could be wrong?

Did you stop and restart the Spooler service after installation?

Yes, the spoolerservice is restarted during installation. I have also restarted the computer after installation. Same problem.
