Excellent PDF Tool

I have been using PDFCreator for some time now and have found it an excellent tool for creating PDF files from any Windows program. It is installed as a printer driver and is easily accessed from the 'Print' option in any program. Several image formats (png, jpg etc) may be created, as well as the standard PDF file. It also incorporates several security features.

Unfortunately, I have not been able to get it working with Windows Vista - despite reports that it will run on Vista in the server mode! Hopefully a 'Vista friendly' version is on the way.

It is not strickly needed when using Open Office which includes its own built in PDF export feature. However these resulting PDF files are much larger than those created with PDFCreator.
