v8.0.906 - HUGE

Postby StephanPaternotte » Mon Apr 28, 2014 9:25 am

doPDF v8 together with the NovaPDF printer driver accounts for a 200MB installation!!!!
doPDF v7 is a modest 13MB.

I used to like doPDF for its simplicity and modest requirements.
You've made PDFCreator an interesting option again.

The total size should be around 40Mb, how did you calculate the 200Mb size?

It was reported by GeekUninstaller.
Possibly an error on its part.
I'll check again using different methods.

Actually, Windows itself (Uninstall Programs) also reports 165MB for doPDF and 35,9MB for the novaPDF driver.
So that makes 201MB.

I installed v8 and thought something was wrong because it was so much larger than v7. I uninstalled it and dropped back to v7 as it worked fine.

The installed size is larger because we will be releasing soon addins for Microsoft Office, meaning you'll be able to create PDFs with one click from Word, Excel, ... without going to Print. That install will be optional.
