Windows 10: Nitro Reader 3 Create PDF locks print queues.
Thanks. I see that my default allows Manage this Printer and Print for Everyone, but not Manage Documents. And oddly permissions are different for other Users such as All Application Packages (which doesn't allow Manage this Printer). I am going to set all three to allow for all users and groups. But won't test it soon. I'm tired of uninstalling and installing Office 365 for now.
Is there a way to flush the queue quickly if it hangs again in the future when testing, say be following the same steps you mention and choosing Cancel All Documents?
BTW - the same problems occur when using Nitro Pro to Create from File, which I assume indicates it uses the same drivers/protocol as printing does.
I have installed Nitro Reader 3 and all I need to use it for is to create pdf docs from word files and then save them. It just will not create the pdf which normally opens up on the screen, yet works fine on 2 computers with win 7 and XP - is it a case of the program is just not there yet for win 10?

Tried this but it didn't work, although, this time, after I restarted, the print queues were cleared. I didn't have to do a system restore. Not sure whether that is because of what I was trying to print this time, or whether because of the fix.
Also tried Create from File, and that didn't work either. I get "Server Busy" error, with option to "Switch to..." or Retry. Cannot switch to anything nor cancel the error. Eventually used Process Explorer to kill Nitro Reader. Thereafter, I could not access anything from Devices and Printers (Windows Explorer not responding) .
Have given up with Nitro and moved to Cute PDF works with no issues on win 10. Maybe give Nitro a few months to sort itself out?
I also really like Nitro Reader, but have uninstalled it because of this issue. I hope they sort it out and fix the program, because for me it's the best free pdf reader/creator out there. In the meantime I've installed Primo pdf creator (PDF Converter 1 Free PDF Creator | PrimoPDF), also free and also put out by the Nitro folks. It works great to create pdf's from my applications (I'm using it with MS Word and Publisher), and the reviews say it creates pdf's from all apps although I've only used it for these two. And best of all, no crashing problems. But it's just a creator...no reader...so I've installed Adobe Reader to read pdf's.
When I'm convinced Nitro has this fixed, I plan to go back.
I've tested PrimoPDF with some other apps that the free Nitro Reader did not work with in Win10. It seems to work fine, so I am moving to that as my PDF printer of choice - since it is developed by Nitro anyway! Hopefully, the Nitro folks either 1) release a version of the free reader/printer that incorporates PrimoPDF and, thus, works with Win10, or 2) remove the printing ability in Nitro Reader, and advise all those who use it (the free reader!) as their PDF printer, to replace it with Primo PDF!
Thanks, larryvogel, for advising of the existence of PrimoPDF!
You're very welcome! So glad I could help. These forums have been a lifesaver for me during my transition to Win 10, and it's great to know I've been able to give something back.
The first time I tried to print with Nitro Reader 3, it froze for several minutes. But after the first time, it worked just as it had with Windows 7. I may just be lucky, but I thought I would share the good news.
Enable Port as well as Security Tab
Try going over > control panel > devices and printers > properties (Nitro PDF Creator- Reader5) > P0RTS > enable (tick box with printer name: Nitro PDF Creator (Reader 5) ALSO check SECURITY tab is enabled for print/manage this printer/manage documents. This software excellent for home user--commendations to Nitro outfit for bringing version (updated 2016 64bit) at no cost that does practically all that is required (reader, printer, conversion to text and so on).
I have a Lenovo X1 Carbon (2012 version) with a fingerprint reader. When I want to install the lenovo driver I have a message that said the Windows Biometric Framework need to be activate. I go into gpedit.msc and active the service, reboot...
Hey guys/gals, need some help.
We're having a discussion over at DP Review. It's a photography site, but they also have a PC Talk forum. Anyway there's a discussion thread - USB thumb drives vs Card Readers in which we're trying to figure out if...
I have a multi card reader and until today I thought it was working but having a need to use it to access an sd card I find that it is not working.

I am unsure as to what to do next.
I was just curious just how many member's in here are trying out / using the latest maxthon nitro browser. I mistakenly installed the 'regular' version of maxthon cloud browser..to be quite frank, I hated it. Hopefully I might actually like...
