PDF-XChange Pro (University of Göttingen)

PDF-XChange Pro for the University of Göttingen

The GWDG has procured an academic campus license of the software product PDF-Xchange Pro of Tracker Products for the entire University of Göttingen, the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG) included.

PDF-XChange can create and edit PDF documents. For a complete function overview have a look at the homepage of the software. The Pro version includes PDF-XChange Standard, PDF-Tools, as well as PDF-XChange Editor.

Usage and financing

The software may be used on all Windows systems of the University of Göttingen (Institute systems only) in any number. Students can use the software only via CIP-Pools provided by the University. Until 9.12.2024 an upgrade service is included, which can also be extended if necessary.

The installation on private PCs of employees as well as students is not allowed according to the license terms !

The financing of the license is already done by the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG) and the Administration of the University of Göttingen (Abteilung IT). Therefore no institute has to pay for the software.

Procurement of software and license key

The latest software can be downloaded here or even directly from the manufacturer (here are also available MSI packages for network installation and manuals). After installation, it can be tested for a limited time. If it is to be used permanently, a license key is required, which can be obtained from the GWDG.

For this purpose, please send an email to support@gwdg.de with the subject “PDF-XChange”. The license key is then sent to the address indicated in a file via email. Further license keys (e. g. for the version7) can be requested the same way.

Installation of the license key

The easiest way to integrate the license key into the system is during installation of the software. For this purpose the contents of the file that contains the license key has to be copied to the clipboard and then referenced by the installation in the appropriate field.

The license key can also be entered over the “Help” menu.
