A New Campus License on PDF-XChange PRO

We are pleased to inform University departments and staff that a new campus license has been arranged on PDF-XChange PRO.  This is a software product developed by Tracker Software Products for viewing, creating and editing PDF documents (click here for the detailed functionalities).  It carries similar functionalities as those supported by Adobe Acrobat Professional.  The supported platforms of PDF-XChange PRO include Windows 8/7/Vista but Macintosh is not included. 

University staff can now use this software on PCs directly owned or leased by departments within the University campus (campus outside Hong Kong is not covered under the campus license).  They can also install this software on personal equipment used for work-related purpose.  For students, they can use this software on departmental PCs but installation and use on the personal equipment of students is specifically prohibited.

Staff can download this software from HKU Portal (type “pdf” in the search field and click the searched link “Download PDF-XChange”).    The installation guide is available at https://intraweb.hku.hk/reserved_2/its/pdf/pdf-xchange-procedure.html.

The use of this software is governed by the End User License Agreements of Tracker Software Products (Canada) Ltd available at http://www.tracker-software.com/licensing.   Staff can visit Tracker Software Products’ knowledgebase for the frequently asked questions and useful information on using this software.

In case you have questions on the above, please feel free to contact our Service Desk at ithelp@hku.hk or 3917 0123.
