PCLWorks Updates & Maintenance

A product like PCLWorks requires ongoing development and continual updates in order to keep-up with latest PCL printer drivers. And, PCLWorks also needs to stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in PDF and other new output file formats. Updates within vX.x release level are provided for FREE.

PCLWorks Update Process:

  1. Always check for the latest PCLWorks Release Note (PTRelnote.pdf). It will contain the version number of the latest release available for downloading or purchasing.

    Update Format: v17.45 is an update to v17.4

    If you took our advice in the download and activation instructions email and saved the downloaded zip file for your existing release, it will have the version number of your release in the last three numbers in the filename (ie. PCLWorks_v17x.zip).

    If not, then look inside the PTRelnot.pdf installed with the product. A shortcut to this file is located in the PCLWorks default icon group or go directly to .\program files\pagetech\PCLWorks_17x\PTRelnot.pdf.

  2. If you wish to update your current version of PCLWorks with a newer version. Just install on top of the current release.

    If while running SETUP.exe from the PCLWorks_17x.zip a problem is detected, you will be prompted to exit and uninstall/remove the existing version. Be sure to back-up anything files that you wish to retain in our install folders.

    After you remove the current version and delete any shortcuts created, Run SETUP.exe from the PCLWorks_17x.zip again to install the latest release.
