Getting FinePrint to work on Vista RC1

Good news for FinePrint owners and lovers. The v5.55 build mostly works under Vista with the caveat that it doesn't print under IE7 Protected Mode, but that's coming soon.

Hi Scott, I did some work on Vista support last week.  if you install the latest FinePrint build (v5.55) it should work pretty well.  The "only" problem (which is obviously quite significant) is that it doesn't yet work with IE7 Protected Mode.  everything else should be OK though. I don't know if you are a pdfFactory user, but the same comments apply to pdfFactory--I fixed some Vista-related problems in the latest build (v3.02).

Here are direct download links for FinePrint 5.55. You may have the Print Spooler Service shut down during the installation but you should be cool after that.

As with all things on this blog, YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary). Enjoy
