V2.0.0 and UseAutoSave in W7 registry

I recently upgraded from 1.7.x to 2.0.0 and did tests on my program settings of PDFCreator

registry values and calls. PDFCreator does not behave as before. PDFCreator 1.7.x did recognize

and use HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PDFCreator\Program\UseAutosave value 0 or 1 as per

documentation. After the install of 2.0.0 the residual values of 1.7.x exist within \Program\

as usual. However, is the 2.0.0 program reading this area? After setting \Program\UseAutosave=1

in my program, the 2.0.0 program call produced a PDFCreator save dialog window which to me

should not occur based on 1.7.x behavior. Also, I found a PDFCreator.net key branch which is

new. Is there something different going on in the registry in regards to these and other

“Auto…” values in 2.0.0?


yes it has all changed quite a bit due to rewriting it in C# for .NET completely. Please have a look at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PDFCreator.net to see how the settings are now stored. The old branch should have been deleted during the 1.7.3 uninstall, we will check this for possible errors.

best regards,
