Running PDFCreator in multiple threads/processes


We create a lot of big PDF's (lots of pictures) on machines with multiple CPUs. But PDFCreator doesn't take advantage of more than one CPU. Any solution to this?

Now we run in this configuration (on 4 PCs in parallel):

  • 4 instances of our custom made application run per PC to create print jobs
  • 4 PDFCreator printers are created. Each has its own printer port, without windows queu so windows would't write the .ps file of on average 250MB as well as PDFCreator to save on disk accesses (was our previous bottleneck).

So our current bottleneck is PDFCreator only running in one thread/process to "move" jobs from its spool directory to PDF...

Any ideas?
