install.exe changes Windows default printer

Post by speedi » Sun Feb 14 2016

Hello,

When I run install.exe for the PDF Converter, the default printer for Windows is changed.
It does not seem to matter what command line parameters are given - even running install.exe with no parameters at all will cause this effect.

Has found a solution to avoid install.exe changing the default printer?

We have our application automatically running install.exe as a silent install and we do not want our users default printer being altered.

Setup:
Windows 10 64bit
PDF Converter (developer) v5.0.1.9

Thanks,
Andrew

To get around this I have our application getting the default printer before running install.exe and then resetting that printer back as the default after the installation completes
