Perhaps just don't exist an alternative for windows 98, like dopdf or tinypdf on 2000 and next?
Thanks you.

I think this was discussed in Printing with KernelEx 4.5.1. Try seaching the forums for "print to pdf".

It may now be possible to run dopdf or tinypdf in 9x with the help of KernelEx and Kexstubs.
Design feedback requested:
KernelEx 4.5.2015
IHAtool - IpHlpApi tester; call various functions and report results
--status-> framework is solid; 22 api's fully supported; preview release coming soon
Future projects: Kexter - IP40+Ktree+Kexstubs

Hi all!
I have found a partial (poor) solution for the pdf printer.

Unfortunately, it's relevant only for only text documents, but in this case it works fine.

No KernelEx needed. What is needed is Adobe PDFWriter, which actually does not work on the NT-family OSes, just on 9x/ME.

As everything from Adobe, though, it's a non-redistributable, so it cannot be attached to MSFN, in case someone still has it.

Thanks Dencorso.
Actually an old Acrobat's cd with Pdfwriter would be ideal.
However, to my current need the plain text solution is sufficient ...i hope ;)

Ah, many good wishes for Christmas for you and all

I think (but I may be wrong at it) that the very last version of PDFWriter came with Adobe Acrobat 5.0, but it was standalone, as it always was and did not require Acrobat's Licence Key to be installed or run, since it is unredistributable but freeware, IIRR.
