doPDF installs as a virtual PDF printer driver so there is no exe file to run in order to convert your documents into PDF files.

To create PDF files, you just have to print your documents to the doPDF Printer, like you would print to a normal printer. Below are some examples on how to create PDF files from various programs (the principle is the same, File->Print and select doPDF as the printer).

How to create PDF files from Microsoft Word:

Open the Word document that you want to convert to a PDF file.
Go to File->Print and select doPDF from the Printers combo-box.
Click on Ok and choose a location for your PDF file.

How to create PDF files from Microsoft WordPad:

Open the document that you want to convert to a PDF file.
Go to File->Print and select doPDF from the Printers list.
Click on Print and choose a location for the PDF.

How to create PDF files from NotePad:

Open the NotePad document that you want to convert to a PDF file.
Go to File->Print and select doPDF from the Printers list.
Click on Print and choose a location for the PDF.

Starting with version 7, doPDF now has an exe file too, so if you go to Start->Programs->doPDF you'll be able to open doPDF.exe - this will let you browse for a file that needs to be converted and then create the PDF out of it.


If you want to get more details on how to create a PDF file, you can download the doPDF manual here: doPDF Manual.

Do you have to use Microsoft Outlook only. I am a farmers agent and we have our own email service. Can i use it with it.

@paulamann - no, you can use dopdf in conjunction with every program that supports printing.
