P2F 64-bit running as 32-bit?

Post by colindean » Mon Oct 05, 2009 11:54 am


Upon further inspection of our issues relating to splwow64 leaking handles, we noticed that Print2Flash--at least the normal GUI and p2fserver.exe--is running as a 32-bit process despite being from the 64-bit package.

We've registered for the 64-bit package and our license key works. We've checked for potential multiple installations, and there are none.

Is a native 64-bit version available?

p2fserver.exe module is actually an OLE automation server which does not process documents and hence is not burdened with heavy workload so it is sufficient for it to be 32 bit without any detrimental effects to performance.

The actual document processing is made in the printer driver DLL which is a 64 bit DLL. If it were not a 64 bit DLL, 64 bit edition of Print2Flash would not work at all as it is a requirement of 64 bit Windows for printer drivers to be 64 bit.
