What is PrimoPDF?

PrimoPDF is a freeware program that creates a PDF file from Microsoft Windows documents. It works as a virtual printer. It does not present the user with advertisements. PrimoPDF is developed by the same company that develops the commercial Nitro PDF software. When the program runs, it tries to download automatic updates from www.primopdf.com each time it prints. This feature can be disabled within the program settings. It uses the Ghostscript file format converter and RedMon printer redirection software.

Some versions use the OpenCandy software library to bundle potentially unwanted software offers during installation.
