Installed perfectly on Vista HP x64. Thanks so much RonyaSoft & GOTD for this program!!! A nice complement to the last offer Poster Designer.

BTW to the Avast! users...I also have Avast! and it didn't ask me anything or warn me of anything suspicious. I have Avast! Security Suite 6 2011 which is the latest at least that I'm aware of. Just thought I'd mention it.

Have a good evening/night :-)

#25. It is recommended to paste data directly from Microsoft Word document, but not to use print screen feature.
In this case data are copied in EMF vector format. And can be scaled without loss of quality.
But enlargement algorithms are available only for raster data and not available for vector data and emf files.

Installed and activated on my Windows XP machine flawlessly. Program runs like a charm.

To #9, any anti-virus software will on occasion display a FALSE positive on an Anti-Virus check. Sometimes you have to do a little extra research to see if a program really is infected or not, which in this case is not. The program is clean. You should blame Avast for giving you a false positive instead of blaming the author of this program.

The same thing happended with me (running Windows 7) as the previous comment by Ron (#3). The activate app runs, the sucessful completion web page displays, but when I start the app it always displays the registration page and Help about shows it is stil unregistered …

It shows that I only have the demo, trial version.

Cool. Installed, activated, and printed out a 9-up without a problem. I was astonished that none of my graphics apps would do this when I needed it recently. But why does the program time say 12:02 AM when my computer time is 2:54 PM?

#3: "Installed OK on Vista, but activation does not appear to be working. The activate app runs, the sucessful completion web page displays, but when I start the app it always displays the registration page and Help about shows it is stil unregistered …"

As always, it's recommended that you run Activate.exe as Administrator -- right-click Activate.exe & select Run as administrator -- so the app has the necessary permissions to write to Windows registry where & as needed.

#10: "It would be interesting to know if it can be used for text by copy & paste from Microsoft word or Open Office."

#25: "... I was expecting to just give it a Word document and print it poster sized..."

For something like that you might be better off printing to PDF [set to save as an image], e.g. using PDF Creator, at whatever size & resolution you wanted for your final print, then open that image in Poster Printer. You could try just a screen shot, but the other way you could better control both size & dpi [dot per inch].

This program has worked as advertized for me. I must admit my company tried this software in its tryout state of only 3 pages and decided on another, not so good poster printer. I would suggest letting the tryout print 4 pages as the other printer did and of coarse this ability helped the board see its value, being able to see a small full poster, not just a hunk of one.

However this giveaway has changed there minds! We will be dumping the other printer for this one. Trust me folks we have put this threw its paces for the last hour or so. A big plus we have found is that RonyaSoft Poster Printer, CAN print to the "PDF Creator" offered here a while back, (we bought it too,) making it possible for us to save the poster and just print out a damaged page when we needed to! A major plus for us. Kids love to add things to posters, and being able to repair one is always a plus.

As to the question "will RonyaSoft Poster Printer print a Word doc?", Seems as though this poster printer is designed more for pictures and not so much for text, so save your DOC as PDF or RTF and it works better when cutting and pasting into the Poster Printer. Note one must step back from the poster to judge the result. However a poster created in Photoshop and Publisher looks incredible! We have also printed a poster from GIMP (an open source program) and others with exceptional result!

We have also found that new page sizes can be added to the page layout list, by simply editing the "SizeTemplates.txt" file found in the programs directory, (the file has the directions listed at the top when it is viewed).

So the bottom line is we are very pleased and will be buying the Poster Printer Business license. Thanks for the tryout, it's a keeper.

RonyaSoft Poster Printer lets you slice your images into letter-sized pieces [or whatever paper sizes your printer supports], then prints the results so you can glue or tape them together, enlarging your images as required using one of 4 re-sizing methods or algorithms, with a preview so you can check the results before printing. It works in XP, win7, & the win8 dev preview with compatibility set to win7.

Install adds the "RonyaSoft" program folder with 45 files, 5 folders, ~8 MB, plus a RonyaSoft folder under All Users App/Application data for storing logs. The registry gets 3 RonyaSoft keys [HKCU\ Software, HKLM\ Software, & HKLM\ Software\ Wow6432Node], plus a key for uninstall. It does use Internet Explorer.

In the US printing services are widespread [besides on-line only venders, print services are offered by most pharmacies, Walmart etc.] & several are very competitively priced -- often cheaper than what you'd pay for the ink. That said, I'm sure creatives can think of all sorts of projects Poster Printer might be good at, from printing on fabric for quilters etc., multi-framed images [one image spanning several framed prints], & if you were very careful lining the separate sheets up, maybe larger than letter-sized iron on or dye-sub transfers.

... I should say that the 2nd print was performed from the same app session, ie. the same image was still loaded and no setting was changed, I just hit the 'Print' button a 2nd time.

Played with it briefly and looks very good, but there was one issue: in my test I loaded a 16bit PNG file - it displayed fine, and seemed to print fine too, but there was a glitch with the printer part-way through, so I aborted the print (including deleting the spooled document).

When I printed the 2nd time, the saturation of the image was incorrect, considerably higher than the 1st print (which was accurate). Is this a known issue? Possibly related to 16bit and/or colour profiles?

Great software. I have tried doing posters with MS Publisher and other software, but Poster Printer is so much easier. I was impressed with the feature set; the ability to crop, print trim lines, size photo, etc. It also picked up all the twain drivers to scan or import photo's from my other devices and handled them perfectly. The UI is very clear and intuitive. I did not check out the quality of the help docs, but I never had a need to.

I was reluctant at first, but it was worth the ink to produce a very nice 22x10 inch poster of a family vacation photo. I will glue the six 8 1/2 x 11 pages onto a poster board and hang it in my office.

Having experience this, I would purchase it for the price.

Easy install and register on Vista 64. Nice small footprint ~5MB.
Thank you!

Many printer drivers already have such "poster printing" in their advanced settings. Before installing this software, check if your printer can do this... for free and without requiring any further installs. Kyocera drivers incl. this functionality.

#4/#9 - John J. Pepper

Are you new to the internet? The site is VirusTotal, not Tinyurl. *sigh* Do I even try to explain URL shorteners to you? Also, asking to sandbox something is common behavior for Avast.

Anyway, as far as the software goes, this does a very limited thing. The above advice of combining this with the poster creator program is misinformed. The poster creator software already has this function included.

I successfully installed and activated the program on my XP Home 32-bit system using Ronyasoft's instructions from comment #6.

However, I found that when I tried to view descriptions of some of the topics listed under the help file's 'Index' tab, not all of the topics were displayed in the embedded browser. Instead, what appeared was the heading 'This program cannot display the webpage'.

The affected topics are: Page margins setup; Printer setup; Setup.

The 'Support' topic contains a URL to the home page of Ronyasoft's website that loaded correctly, but the three affected topics were not covered there, since there is no equivalent of the program's help file available from the company's website. The 'Poster printer FAQ' page (http://www.ronyasoft.com/products/proposter/faq.html) is more of a troubleshooting guide than a setup and instruction page.

Hopefully the faulty topic pages will shortly be fixed -- I am assuming it is a problem at Ronyasoft's end, and not one involving the helpfile itself.

I also suggest that the folks at Ronyasoft should make the helpfile information available directly on their website's 'Support' page.

Installed on Windows 7 Lenovo laptop. Avast recommends I open in sandbox. So, I open in sandbox. Any data I save will be lost when sandbox is closed, but I see no need to save a print job anyway ... so it's fine with me as is. I get the same sandbox recommendation from their GAOTD previously offered Poster Designer. I wonder what the program is trying to do that Avast does not like. Registered to GAOTD without issue.

It installed and activated without a problem on XP SP3.

I was expecting to just give it a Word document and print it poster sized but found that I was required to copy the picture onto the clipboard and paste it into Poster Printer. The Word picture was text and small graphics overlaid onto a background picture and although it copied to the clipboard the paste button in Poster Printer was greyed out. I had to convert the Word document to a PDF and open that to capture it onto the clipboard and paste into Poster Printer. I chose my output size and previewed the print and the output would be badly pixelated, but the drop down algorithms list was greyed out and improvement algorithms listed in the Help file were not available. The text overlaying the underlying graphic on the printed output was so badly pixelated that it was illegible. Perhaps I picked a bad example, but it was something I had spent time creating and I did want a poster sized copy of it.

In a nutshell, it looks as though with a high resolution photo it will be a good product, and I shall keep it for large prints of pictures taken with my digital camera, but it is not as versatile as I had hoped.

Comparing to Poseterazor (freeware) Ronyasoft Poster Printer has many advantages. First, it allows cropping. Very easy to change the number of pages, etc. by cropping right in the program.

Second, it doesn't do Wizard--I can go back and forth changing things knowing what the other parts of the configuration for that picture are.

It has trim, glue, and overlap margins, which for me helps me when actually pasting the poster together with my clumsy hands.

The page size options are really great, and while I haven't yet put it through more than cursory paces, the scaling options look like it may really help with Fonts or fine details (hoping)

The only thing on my wish-list is to be able to save the resulting pages, instead of printing them immediately. This would allow me to take the series of jpegs or whatever to a professional printer on the occasions I have wanted to do so.

I just downloaded and installed onto my XPsp3 computer and had not trouble at all with it being registered to GAOD. I must report that I first scanned the download with my Avast and it reported "No Problems". After installing it Avast popped up with the recommendation to only open into the SandBox. Hate that. But I opened naturally and remembered my decision. Can't understand why after scanning and it claiming nothing wrong; Avast then recommended opening program only into the sandbox. Anyway; program looks really good but have not tested it as yet. Directions to install and register could not be any easier! Thanks GAOD and RonaSoft.

Sorry, another question for the developer: I noticed some advice on your website about thin paper showing up glue lines, but I couldn't find any recommendations for what sort of paper works best for projects.

If you are printing a large banner, what paper would you recommend for the best results?

How does this program handle the fact that most printers do not print right to the edge of the page? Does it create an overlap between pages to enable you to stick the pages together, or do you end up with gaps?
