Tutorials and Howtos should only relate to Pale Moon, and not to third party applications. e.g.: Don't post a Howto for configuring your firewall.
If you have a question how to do something, you should use one of the support boards, not this board. It is meant for people to document and post instructions.

Hello Moonchild,

thank you very much for providing the Sumatra PDF package. This version works as expected in Pale Moon 25.6.0.

Installation is quite simple, either. I just had to unpack all the files into the plugins sub-folder of my profile directory and then set PDFs to be displayed with Sumatra PDF.

Great! Thank you once again!

Kind regards,

Free PDF-XChange VIewer with PMx64

Post by bawldiggle » 2016-08-20, 08:46

Have been using FREE PDF-XChange Viewer (install) since December-2013 (v2.5.214.0) on Win7 PRO 64bit desktop -- never a problem.
Developers TrackerSoftware have released many upgrades since 2013 -- most recent is v2.5.316.0 dated 11-Jan-2016
Free - PDF-XChange Viewer download page
Download page states "Viewer" has been replaced by "Editor" -- which is true ie, Viewer is maintained but not developed, Editor is the flagship product (commercial)
The only thing that keeps this Pale Moon Project afloat is $$$$$$ ... spelt "m-o-n-e-y" everything else is just talk
Donate to the Pale Moon project here

Built with x64+release, and zipped up all resulting dll and exe files (including the np*.dll plugin). No installer since building the installer is a pain and the build scripts don't cater to x64 on Windows.

Download from: The Pale Moon FTP server about 7MB
Since I alternate a lot between palemoon portable in 32 bit and 64 bit, is it possible to compile a 64bit plugin which uses a custom name for SumatraPDF.exe, like SumatraPDF64.exe, so that I can have both the 32bit and 64bit executable in only one folder of plugins ?
I ask because it is how it works for flash players , so I do not need to worry about a lack of plugins when going from 32bit to 64bit palemoon.
