Windows 7 64 Bit Adobe Pdf Printer Driver Install Update
Any suggestion about bit printer driver for use under Windows 7 bit or Vista? I'm always use Scitex Dolev drivers from Windows inf-files, but in bit versions it is not present. Need bit driver for any imagesetter PS3, A0 or A1. Use it for print to file option and making pdf with Distiller. Why are you using 21st century software with a workflow? All Adobe apps create PDFs natively and this is the recommended method.
For some reason files from Distiller smaller then files from direct export. PostScript is generated and automatically passed onto the Distiller for you. You certainly don't want or need to use Neanderthal PostScript device descriptions many for PostScript language level 1 and 2 devices to create an artificial PostScript printer driver instance for this purpose!
Romano, you are not out. Like cloud is'nt enough. And even then, if you absolutely, positively needed to create PDF via distillation of PostScript, if you have Acrobat, the proper Adobe PDF PostScript printer driver instance is automatically setup to automate this process for you. Why in the world would you want ancient Scitex PostScript language level 1 drivers to create PostScript for distillation? First of all, apologies. That is automatically created for you when you install Acrobat.
If you don't have Acrobat installed, Windows isn't going to give you the ability to create such a printer driver instance. Going back to my first "rude" post - i just can't escape the feeling that the industry is telling us - Well, buy new software and everything will be just fine.
This is between you, me and the landpost. Yes, from the perspective of an end-user of software products, it certainly looks like application software vendors are simply trying to get to you to part with additional cash for new versions of these products and using various excuses for same. However, I wish it was that simple.
Unfortunately, that is not the case anymore. And part of the problem are computer vendors who also write the operating system who have actually have a very negative incentive to provide OS version upgrades that are compatible with hardware older than three years and certainly older applications. We simply could not have anticipated those monitors over 10 years ago when CS2 and the version of Acrobat associated with same was developed.
In order to accommodate these monitors, many incompatible changes were made to both Windows 8. In the second case, as part of the transition to 64 bit operating systems and to deal with issues with security, changes were made in how drivers such as the Adobe PDF PostScript printer driver instance install and interface and how applications, especially one with system hooks such as Acrobat, are installed.
And in the third case, Apple made it effectively impossible to have an application that could install and run on any version of MacOS older than two versions due to changes in some and elimination of other OS functions.
For application software developers such as Adobe, it is very difficult and expensive to simultaneously develop new versions with new features and try to upgrade old versions to be fully compatible with and take advantage of features of new operating system versions and features. Such major changes were in fact what went into new versions. If you are a few years back on systems and OS not supported by the latest update, we hold that update for you until you get new hardware and OS versions.
Upgrades are built into the price of the subscription; you don't pay anything extra for the new versions. In fact, some very high end, specialized software including some printer RIPs are licensed in that manner. In fact, that is really just a subscription. If you can't afford those application software upgrades, you can't afford the new computer or OS version.
Please understand that I am not in Adobe marketing or sales, but just a dumb engineer here as well as a major user of software from both Adobe and many other companies as well. In the case of the software I license from other companies, I also need to pay for upgrades and new versions. I simply take such costs as part of the cost of maintaining computers that I replace every three to four years with relatively new OS versions.
I'm was so proud using Distiller, now look's like i'm lag behind the times. Gimme scitex drivers and propper distiller for f Is it so hard to do? Didn't mean any harm. And there it is. And there's the pdf. Each and every print studio was and still is happy with the pdf's i've sent to them. And i was happy with recieved printed materials. Recently i switched to W 8. Now, it's going to take some time for a dinosaur to learn the old dog the new tricks Hope you get the joke.
I don't care for updates for another 7 years. Dear Dov, Thanks for your answer. I do have Acrobat installed. Now i am running win 8. My previous os was xp. And things were fine. Ok, 32 vs 64 bit os is obviosly the problem. Regarding this, there are many issues with fonts also. Both Adobe and Corel programs. There are a few patches and sp-s for cdr. Working better but still CS2 apps are unsupported under Windows 8.

Is this driver free? I would like to get this driver for my home Win 7 system but have not been able to find it. I have found similar drivers from other providers, but not Adobe. Some of these drivers require payment which leads me to believe Adobe does not give this away free. Any info is apprecieated. Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1.
