This tutorial explains how to use novaPDF (along with other useful tips) to optimize your PDF file for search engines. With the novaPDF printer driver you can generate PDF files and perform SEO from any Windows application that supports printing.
novaPDF SDK sends a request to create the PDF files to the printer driver that gets installed with the package, novaPDF for SDK. By default, if novaPDF SDK is unregistered, each page from the generated PDF file will contain a footer notice (that says the application is not registered). After you purchase a license and register novaPDF SDK, that footer notice won't be included in the generated PDF files.
After you install novaPDF it is recommended to restart your computer if the final window of the installation wizard tells you so. If novaPDF does not appear in your Printers and Faxes list after installation (or you get Printer not installed when trying to create PDFs), it means something went wrong with the installation.
The page related settings have a different behavior than the other settings (save, compression, fonts, security,...). While the last are specific to the novaPDF printer driver, the page related settings are used for all printer drivers and can be set by system calls (check the DEVMODE Windows structure).
If you want to reinstall novaPDF Server from the client computers and from the server itself too, there are a couple of steps you should follow to make sure you succeed with the reinstallations, including making sure you first remove all the previous installations / versions completely.
When integrating novaPDF SDK in a 32bit application that will be distributed on Windows x64 systems too, you have to take into account some aspects regarding the default behavior of our installer. One of these is the novaPDF installer that contains both 32 bit and 64 bit versions of the novaPDF driver and of the COM interface. Because of its built-in automatic detection, when installing novaPDF on Windows x64 computers (via your application), the 64bit version of the driver and COM interface are installed (and not the 32bit version).
