Use new Ghostscript under old PDFcreator?

I have this running system

  • Windows server 2003, SP2
  • PDF Creator 0.9.6
  • Ghostscript 8.63

I want to update GS to a more current version, e.g. GS9.27W32. Will this be possible?
Can I install the new GS parallel to the old one and switch the settings in PDFCreator?

Thanks and reagrds

No ideas to this question?


I don't think this will be possible, PDFCreator was adjusted to run smoothly with the current Ghostscript release multiple times.

Best regards


Desolé ..

Thanks Robin.

If there is anything we can help you with to get the new PDFCreator version running, just let us know.
I assume you have some application using the old COM interface, or do you need the old PDFCreator version for a different reason?

Best regards



the problem is that GS 8.63 creates the strange (encoded?) metadata in "Author" and other fields, like

I don't want to update the entire system on that old server (Win 2003), and hoped that a simple job like "copy the new GS to a folder and change the settings in PDFCreator" would do it.

But it's not that important to spend a lot of time with it.
