Click Export to export selected profiles. Exported profiles save as (*.pxppp) files that can be uploaded to other installations of PDF-XChange Standard via the Import feature detailed below.

Click Import to import settings that the Export feature has been used to export. Alternatively, rundll32 can be used to install profiles, as detailed below. Further information on rundll32 is available here.






There is also a rundll32 option for profiles:


rundll32 "C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Standard\drvui.x64.dll",DUI30_Command [/InstallProfile:"<fullpathtoprofile>" | /SetDefProfile:"<profile_name>"] [/PrinterName:"PDF-XChange Standard"] [/AsDefault] [/ForUser]


Note that the drvui.x64.dll, as detailed above, should be used for 64-bit systems. If a 32-bit system is being used, then the drvui.x86.dll should be used instead.


Use the Export feature detailed in (figure 3) to export profiles for use in conjunction with the rundll32 option.


The rundll32 contains the following parameters:


/InstallProfile:"<fullpathtoprofile>" installs a profile from the path specified. If /AsDefault is specified then the profile will be set as the default profile.

/AsDefault sets the new profile as the default profile.

/SetDefProfile:"<profile_name>" sets the specified profile as the default profile. For example: /SetDefProfile:"Current".

/PrinterName specifies the printer to which changes are made. If no printer is specified then the default printer is used.

/ForUser changes the profile for only the current user. If this parameter is not specified then the profile is changed for all users.




The following command line installs an exported profile to the printer 'PDF-XChange Standard':


C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange Standard\drvui.x64.dll",DUI30_Command /InstallProfile:"C:<path to profile>\ProfileName.pxpp" /PrinterName:"PDF-XChange Standard"
