Black Ice Software

With 2022 coming to a close, we wanted to take a moment to summarize some of the major improvements made to the Printer Driver in the past year.

Recent Improvements

  • Create password-protected PDF files with a single click
  • Added Searchable PDF file format to the ColorPlus and PDF Printer Drivers
  • Added IBM IOCA and MO:DCA output file formats
  • New Authentication options for the HTTPS upload
  • Updated Tesseract OCR engine to version 5.1
  • Page Size, Orientation, and Resolution features are now easily accessible in the Printer Manager
  • Remove blank pages from the printed document
  • New project and solution files for Visual Studio 2022, 2019, 2017 for every RTK sample, and the C#, VB.NET, and MSI install samples

Password Protected PDF

Users can create password-protected and encrypted PDF files with a single click. Password protection is critical in preventing unauthorized access to PDF documents or restricting sensitive operations on PDF documents like document viewing, editing, printing, and copying. The Black Ice ColorPlus and PDF printer drivers now offer an easy and simple way to enable or disable access rights to these features, helping to protect documents and their sensitive information. The Printer Driver now also includes support for 256-bit AES encryption of PDF output file formats.

New HTTPS Authentication Methods

Besides the standard authentication methods, the HTTPS Upload feature now includes the HTTP Basic authentication method and OTP (One-Time-Password) Authentication.

The HTTP Basic Authentication method is a website-level authentication method, that is managed by the Web Server service. This Feature provides a simple, and universal way to authenticate users when they upload documents to a website.

The OTP Authentication method provides a mechanism for logging on to a network using a unique password that can only be used once. The OTP authentication is a great way to simplify user interaction and reduce the number of clicks for users.

Focus on OEM Developers

For Developers and OEM customers, the new Black Ice Printer Driver RTK (Resource Toolkit) comes with new project and solution files for Visual Studio 2022, 2019, and 2017 for every RTK sample, and the C#, VB.NET, and MSI install samples.

New Agent Printer samples were added to the installation sample of the OEM printer drivers to help OEM developers create an installation for their applications. The Agent Printer sample installation also includes how to preconfigure the Agent Printers for every user on the system. The Agent Printer samples are available for the Microsoft MSI and InstallShield MSI installation samples.
