Spyontech review about Foxtab PDF Converter

The Bad:
1. Foxtab PDF Converter is a virtual printer only, so you should open and print your documents with Foxtab PDF Virtual printer to convert your printable document into a PDF format. There is no instant converter feature like Sonic PDF Creator has.
2. If you choose “Quick Installation” option when installing Foxtab PDF Converter, it will install Babylon toolbar and make Babylon search engine as your browser’s homepage. So, ensure you follow the step by step installation above (step 3b) to install Foxtab PDF Converter correctly.
3. There are no additional features such as set password, merge PDF pages, etc.

The Good:
1. It’s completely FREE, no hidden cost.
2. It’s support to convert all of printable files and documents.
3. It’s easy and simple to use.

Final Verdict
Take a look at Sonic PDF Creator giveaway first BEFORE install this software. If you find that Sonic PDF Creator still available for free, use it instead of Foxtab PDF Converter. But if Sonic PDF Creator Giveaway was expired, Foxtab PDF Converter is my RECOMMENDED alternative software for you to convert any printable files and documents for FREE!

    Installing PDF Converter I get the message: “Printer installation error -2003 (0). Running Windows 7 64bits. Adding printer is no option under Win7 because “Active Directory Domains Services are currentle not running”.
    Do you have a solution?

    Thanks in advance, Zwapan

  • Chris Febian

    @ Zwapan : hmmm..i’m not testing it yet on windows 7 64 machine..i guess that it’s a bug of sonic PDF Creator. I will contact the developer and forward the solution to you :)
