  • How is uninstall taken care? until printer is uninstalled, Redmon is not getting uninstalled .
    Deleted printer related registeries under :
    HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print

    -Forms

    -Printers

    -Monitors

    -Environments


    also have a look at keys under

    HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion-PrinterPorts

    -Devices

    REBOOT required.

    Printer uninstalls.

    But if we now try to uninstall REDMon, it prompts a dialog box telling it is not installed. But we can still see the ARP entry of this product.

    Any suggestions?

Note
If you want to create a MSI package of FreePDF and don't know how to add the printer then use Process Monitor and look for registry keys located under
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print
-Forms
-Printers
-Monitors
-Environments

also have a look at keys under
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion-PrinterPorts
-Devices

If you include all necessary keys regarding the FreePDF printer then your MSI should create the printer and you should be able to use all functions of FreePDF. Perhaps a restart of the system is needed but I haven't tested it yet.
