Editors' Review

Advanced Word to Pdf Converter Free promises to convert Word documents (DOC, DOCX, and DOCM) as well as text and rich-text documents into searchable PDFs, as the name suggests, for free. We assume it's intended for users who lack Word, since Word can save Word, text, and rich-text documents directly as PDFs. And "free" in this case means it's a restricted version of a premium tool. That wouldn't matter so much if it actually converted files in its default mode, without the paid version's settings and options. Unfortunately, it didn't.

Advanced Word to Pdf Converter's simple user interface is divided into three sections: an upper main window with a list view of selected files, a central Save Folder section, and a lower section labeled Output File Type: PDF File. Most of the features in the lower section are disabled in the freeware. A nag message in red informed us that the paid version could access the parameters, and did we want to upgrade? We didn't, and more nags told us (in essence, though not in so many words) to browse to a destination in which to save our converted file. We never got the chance, though, because the program first crashed our open copy of Word and then issued a series of error warning messages, including one that had something to do with our printer and another that simply advised us to reinstall the software. We tried to convert a text file next, with virtually identical results. Or, to be more specific, an identical lack of results; the Output Files folder was empty.

We've tested freeware that can convert just about any kind of document you could think of into a PDF, and vice versa, and with no fuss or muss. Even if it had simply worked properly, we'd still say there's no reason to buy Advanced Word to Pdf Converter, or any PDF converter, until you've explored some of the freeware PDF utilities available. Many do the job well, and quite a few of them do more, such as converting more file types or performing two-way conversions. Keep looking.

"No. Free version does partial job, puts advert at top"

April 20, 2009  |  By Tom_1942

 |  Version: Advanced Word to Pdf Converter Free 5.0

Pros

The free version provides a partial, altered sample so you can see what the purchased product would do.

Cons

Free version puts an advertisement at top of a partially converted document. You have to link the document to the application in its directory. The uninstall is incomplete, leaving a directory with files in it.

Summary

The free version is nothing more than a sales gimmick for the paid version. It slowly does an incomplete conversion inserting an advertisement at the top of the document. The resulting file didn't look all that great either. I have no idea as to the quality of the paid version as I found the free version's operation onerous. The uninstall was incomplete. I had a message about running a DLL that I found disquieting. MS's control panel uninstall gave a message of an error on uninstall. After uninstall it left a directory with files in it that I manually removed. I have yet to run a registry cleaner but shall do that and run a virus checker soon. Not recommended.
