Lost Nitro Printer in V8 during re-install

Recommended Posts


Hi. We have an old version of Nitro - V8.0 (operating system Windows 7 Professional).

Due to a disk failure, we had to reinstall Nitro, but can get the Nitro Pro Printer set up - keeps failing. I noticed that someone else had the same problem with a later version of Nitro & needed to download the full installer. Is there somewhere I can download the Nitro Pro V8 installer?

Hello Strine,

Thanks for posting here!

You can find the installers here:

Unfortunately Microsoft has changed the way the 'Print Spooler' works in Windows.
Because of this Nitro Pro 8 cannot be supported on Windows.

The PDF Creator built into Nitro Pro 8 will not work properly.
Though other functions should remain usable.

You have three options from here:

1. You could upgrade to Nitro Pro 12.

2. You could install Nitro Pro 12 as a trial (alongside your current installation), just to use the PDF creator.
The Creator will remain after the trial has finished.

3. You could install our alternative PDF creator, PrimoPDF: http://www.primopdf.com/

Hope that helps!
