No Advertizing, No Spyware, No tricks, Just the application.

I take privacy very seriously. PStill does not contain any advertizing, trackers or spying components. PStill/Win installs completely local in one folder (can even be used from an USB stick), it does not 'phone home' and it does not contain 'spyware' or 'adware'. PStill is self-contained, except for the standard VisualC 2012 x86 Runtime it does not need any other components.

Download PStill for Windows as of 1. August 2022

Supported platforms: Windows 7 (64 bit), Windows 8 (64 bit), Windows 8.1 (64 bit), Windows 10 (64 bit), Windows 11 (64 bit), Windows Server starting with Server 2003, use 1.90.18 for 32 bit platforms.

Click here to download PStill Version 1.90.32

Version 1.90.32 contains compatibity and security fixes, signed with new code signing certificate (If Windows Smart Screen complains on installation, it is only because it is too new yet)

Version 1.90.24 moves to 64bit for GPStill and pstill. Especially on Windows 10 this version works much faster, in particular for larger files or STL generation. Note that the names of the executables have been changed to gpstill64 and pstill64. The installer is still a 32 bit application but it installs 64 bit programs, it can be installed over an older installation of PStill directly. Also license keys continue to work.

Version 1.90.18 adds visual usage hints to the application to make it easier to see the relevant setting for different output formats. It greatly improves the STL generator, allowing for larger output sizes and much faster processing. It also contains improvements for Windows 10 and uses a faster, more efficient memory manager. For a list of changes see the Readme that is contained within the installation. When run as evaluation the program is throttled and displays an extra message.

PStill comes with six command line tools: 'pstill' is the converter system for command line use, 'pdfattach' to attach files to PDF and PDF/A, 'pdflin' to linearize PDF, 'pdfasm' to combine PDFs and 'rawsend' to send jobs over the network and 'pdfseparator' to create color separated PDF. See the command line tutorial for more information or check the readme files in the PStill installation folder.
