"PDF-eXPLODE is great! We have tested the software and are purchasing it today. We had no problems setting it up to read the e-mail address and it e-mailed out all paystubs. Hats off to you! Not only does PDF-eXPLODE save a company a lot of money, it also is a great time management tool."

Server Editions

PDF-eXPLODE is available for three server environments. In a server environment, PDF-eXPLODE runs under the ‘Local System’ user account without the computer being logged-in.

  • PDF-eXPLODE Terminal/Citrix Server: This edition runs on a Microsoft Terminal Services or Citrix server. Licensed per concurrent-user, it can be configured so that all users share the same settings or to allow each user to have their own settings. It also supports Citrix Published Apps.
  • PDF-eXPLODE Printer Server: This edition runs on a network shared computer as a shared printer. Licensed per concurrent user, all users share the same settings.
  • PDF-eXPLODE Report Server: This edition runs on a server that is also running a report server such as BusinessObjects Enterprise, Crystal Reports Server, SQL Server Reporting Services or another report scheduling application. Licensed per server, any report printed by the report server can be directed to PDF-eXPLODE. This edition also includes PDF-eMONITOR Server, providing the option to explode and e-mail PDF files exported by the report server. PDF-eMONITOR works by monitoring an “inbox” folder for newly created PDF files.
