That makes using PDFCreator Server very easy for your users: they can just print to a shared printer. No installation, no configuration, no user interaction required. The server will convert the printed file using the settings defined for the printer and store it in the defined location.
And because several users can share the same printer and through that the same configuration, once your configuration needs to change for all users there is only one place where you need to adjust it.
An admin can use the included GUI application to configure and start the service. He can create printers and assign queues to them. Each queue uses a different set of settings, similar to the profiles in PDFCreator.
It is also possible to adjust the amount of threads the service uses to convert files. The use of multiple threads enables PDFCreator Server to convert more than one file at the same time.
On starting the service, it is initialized with the defined queues and creates a thread pool containing the set number of threads. When a user prints using a PDFCreator Server printer that was shared in the network, the service is notified about the new print job. The job is then stored in the queue assigned to the printer.
