To install novaPDF OEM on your computer you need to have administrative rights. The installation process does not take much time. All you need to do is follow the instructions of the "novaPDF OEM" wizard.
There is no need to reboot at the end of the setup; you can print to novaPDF OEM right after it is installed on your machine. If you have already installed an older version of novaPDF OEM, you can install the new version on top of the older one, without uninstalling it. Your existing option profiles will be preserved when installing a new version.

Network install
novaPDF OEM can be installed on a central computer and used by any computer in the network. This is what you have to do:
Choose a computer in the network that will be the "print server". Install novaPDF OEM on it, as described in the Install section.
If you will be connecting to novaPDF OEM using Remote Desktop, Terminal Services or Citrix sessions then you do not need to share and install on the client computers anything.
If you are not using Remote Desktop, Terminal Services or Citrix you have to share the novaPDF OEM printer. From any workstation ("client computer") in the network, connect to the shared novaPDF OEM printer. You can connect to a shared network printer in several ways. Here are two of them:
  • from Windows Start menu, Settings, open Printers and Faxes. Select Add Printer and choose the novaPDF OEM server you shared on the "print server".
  • in Windows Explorer, go to the "print server", open Printers and Faxes, select novaPDF OEM server and from the pop-up menu choose Connect
After a connection was made to the novaPDF OEM, you can see it in your list of printers on the workstation ("client computer"). You can go to any application and print to it.

You can uninstall the application from Add or Remove programs from the Control Panel.

Network uninstall
On the workstations ("client computers") go to the Windows Start menu, Settings, open Printers and Faxes. Select the novaPDF OEM printer and delete it. On the "print server" you can uninstall the application using the Add/Remove programs icon from the Control Panel.
