Foxit Reader - PDF viewer

#1 Post by thm » Thu Oct 11, 2007 7:45 am

[Moderator note: this is the primary Foxit program thread. View database entry]

Unless I'm mistaken, Foxit Reader 2.2 now appears to be payware,
at least it now has a "register" option...

If you register Foxit Reader, you get the Foxit Reader Pro Pack :wink:
Don't register and you can continue to use the freeware version

But you can also choose to download an older version of Foxit Reader:

Foxit portable pdf reader & url of huge portable fw data

I found this while looking for the portable version of Foxit PDF reader, a PDF reader that is much better than Adobe. Foxit opens a pdf file very quickly and doesn't slow the pc down while you're using it. After I tried Foxit, I installed it on all my pcs and I hope I never have to use Adobe's reader again!

This site has Foxit portable version PDF reader on it, and so much more

This link is to the Foxit PDF reader.

I think it's the same like this one, which is already in the database.

No it doesn't. Saves as a local INI file.

Foxit or the launcher?

Foxit most certainly does.

@Local: Foxit V3 no longer writes settings to the registry but to a local INI file, so it doesn't require the launcher any more. I have previously updated the database entry to reflect this change.

Ahh, my mistake, I didn't look for the settings themselves.
I assumed the registry keys contained them, they're just empty keys now.

The latest version still writes to the registry @
