Thank you Andrea, but that is not what I'm looking for. I don't want
to use Open Office and having a virtual printer is a client
requirement. I want to use a virtual printer that anyone in the
network can configure and print to a number or formats. For the time
my virtual printer only prints PDF, but i would like to have more file

Kind regards,
Joana Botto
