Enterprise Deployment Utility




Our PDFs need to conform to PDF/A-1b standard. By default Nitro PDF Creator driver does not have this option enabled. It would be really helpful if the driver's default settings could be controlled via Deployment Utility too.

There's no really good way to do this- the registry key that would control this (and presumably all of the other settings of the PDF printer itself) stores the values as a giant binary registry type- it's one giant blob of hex pairs. (This appears to be a Windows thing, not a Nitro thing).

There's a version of the key in HKLM and in HKCU.

The HKCU location is: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\DevModePerUser

If you've set something different than the printer defaults, a value will show up here- otherwise, nothing is present.  Nitro PDF Creator (Pro 12) is the key name.

The HKLM location is either HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Printers\Nitro PDF Creator (Pro 12)\PrinterDriverData\PrinterData or HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers\Nitro PDF Creator (Pro 12)

The key is "Default DevMode".

Good luck, and let me know if you do end up trying this- I'd be curious how it works out and if you find a better way, let me know.
