I extracted the files in the setup64.exe file and found a file called string.txt that had the prompts in it. I wasn't able to find a way to run it from the extracted files. The setup file is probably referring to that string.txt for instructions, but I don't know how to modify it.

Try this: "%PROGRAMFILES%\Acro Software\CutePDF Writer\uninscpw.exe" -s

  • There is no "uninscpw.exe" only setup64.exe
  • The Edit Software Detail in KACE shows that this is the path for the uninstall, but like he said, it does not exist.

Install works fine. Looking for Uninstall cmd. Has anyone tried to create an msi? I get a CutePDF printer but looks like its disabled. And when i try to print to it, its not offering to save  a pdf as a vendor install does.

  • Yes we can create msi.Look for printter option setting to enable the printer or you might be deleting the files which are required for the printer.

Has anyone created an msi for version 2.8? I am getting an icon in Printers but its telling me that the driver is missing. After taking a shapshot.

  • Check the MSI and make sure the full set of files from [systemfolder]\spool\drivers\w32x86\ and [systemfolder]\spool\drivers\w32x86\3 are in the MSI.
    You'll also need to package GhostScript if you didnt already. I would recommend packaging them separate, so they can be updated independently.
    Then restart spooling service.
    See the notes under research - the info is still applicable for the most part.

I am adding files to [systemfolder]\spool\drivers\x64 and [systemfolder]\spool\drivers\x64\3 folder. I am creating a package on x64 system. GhostScript is packaged as well, and restarting spooler.

The notes are to create an .inf file. And they are for the older version. I tried to follow the logic and created .inf file with cpwmon64.dll as a drive files but getting an error when i try to run:

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