  • No Virtual Printer since updating

    Foxit Version:
    Windows 10 PC Winver_1909_18363.836

    I went to print a document today in excel. Normally Foxit Reader is listed as one of the printers, but not today.

    There is no Foxit Printer listed.

    I did manage to print using "Microsoft Print to pdf". This saved as a pdf, and opens in Foxit (foxit being my default pdf reader).

    Whilst this is a workround, Im disappointed that Foxit have seen fit to remove the Virtual Printer from their latest update.

    We highly apologize for any hassle and inconvenience this may cause for you.
    Foxit creator component has been removed in Foxit Reader 10 since our product marketing team redefined the purposes of Foxit Reader,it is mainly used to view PDF files,so the creating PDFs feature was deleted,the Foxit Reader 10 release no longer supports the create PDF feature, which includes Foxit Reader PDF Printer, Foxit Creator add-ins for Office, scan to PDF feature.
    If this capability is required for your workflows, may I advise you to try one of the below options?
    1. You can uninstall Foxit Reader V10 and install back Foxit Reader V9.7.2 which is the last version with Foxit
    creator feature contained. Following is link for downloading Foxit Reader V9.7.2:
    2. You can try out Foxit PhantomPDF which has Foxit PhantomPDF printer, it can be downloaded for a free 14 day trail from the Foxit Download Center -
    With PhantomPDF, you will get more features, like PDF editor, protection and so on, more details, you can refer to
    Sorry again, and thank you for choosing Foxit.

        Is the link provided by Foxit? Actually, please just keep with version 9.7.2 to use Foxit PDF printer, thank you.
