doPDF 8.0 Build 905

doPDF installs itself as a virtual PDF printer driver so after a successful installation will appear in your Printers and Faxes list. To convert to PDF, you just have to print the document to doPDF, the free pdf converter. Open a document (with Microsoft Word, WordPad, NotePad or any other software), choose Print and select doPDF. It will ask you where to save the PDF file and when finished, the PDF file will be automatically opened in your default PDF viewer.

Build 906 is out and is cut back to 2 MB. Still needs to download and install .NET Framework, but I can only guess that in Build 905 Framework was included in the installer. Now it wants to connect to the net for that application. Earlier versions are recommended. This build includes a lot of "extras" but none of them are necessary in producing a PDF document.

Doro PDF installed without any problems. Word to PDF conversion was quick and simple. It did try to connect to the internet at first use, so you have to go into the program settings and uncheck the update box. The resulting PDF document looked really good. Thanks for the suggestion. Always nice to find another useful office utility. Maybe Neowin can do a proper review of the product?

What a piece of crap.
I decided to see what would happen if I let it install (Windows XP).
It accesses the net 3 times during the insallation process. It downloads .NET Framework 4 from MS, then it crashes my computer with a BSOD (no more IRP stack locations).
Then after rebooting my computer does a disk check of all my partitions, and finally a giant green logo in the middle of my screen says that doPDF is installed. Upon checking I find that it was not installed correctly and does not show up under "printers".
I ghosted back my C drive and decided not to use this product as is. It's a lot of grief for a PDF maker that comes with Office 2007/2010/2013 anyway.

On Windows 7, this installer still says that .NET Framework is needed. Not only that, but despite the 39.7 MB size of the installer, it requires an internet connection to download even more files from Microsoft. What is that all about?

Unlike earlier versions, this requires installing .NET Framework. Explains why version 7 is only 4 MB while this new version 8 is 39.7 MB in size! I stay clear of anything that requires .NET Framework. It scatters files and registry entries all over the place.
