  • FIXED: "Invalid Treenode" error when opening a PDF which had page 1 extracted from the original PDF.
  • FIXED: Bug that showed an error message when Command Line contained a filename exactly 3 letters long.
  • FIXED: Minor typo in French language file.
  • FIXED: Upgrade not running automatically after download is completed.
  • IMPROVED: Updated the Portuguese-BR language file (thanks to Luciano K).
  • IMPROVED: Made default the "Overwrite Existing File (Give Warning)" setting for new installations.
  • DOCUMENTATION: Added instructions for IT Administrators for network/server installation.
  • DOCUMENTATION: Mentioned  that silent "/S" install switch must be capitalized instructions in the help file.

It's very comfortable when sending documents to others using e-mail or via the web, sometimes users do not know how to choose the appropriate format. If you convert levitra to PDF, the document will not be changed easily and retain the original format on the recipient computer. PDF Redirect rather quickly create PDF files from any printable document on your PC.

It is really good to know that the PDF redirect Pro version 2.5.2 is now available for download. One of the significant features that I like about the new update is that it has added the function where by which users can email straightaway from Main save button. Does it work like . Also, the Invalid Treenode error has also been fixed.

Please let me know when Vietnamese support will be available. I like the software but it's difficult because of the language. I wait for a new version from you. Thank!
