MISSION VIEJO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 21, 2005 -- activePDF Inc., a leading provider of PDF creation, conversion and development tools for Windows, today announced the release of PrimoPDF 2.0, the totally free PDF creation tool that makes it easy for anyone to create high-quality PDFs from virtually any printable file type: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc. Free of annoying pop-up ads, PrimoPDF 2.0 is a full-featured PDF creator -- it's not a trial version and there is no catch.

A robust developer component is also newly available that provides an API enabling programmatic access to all PrimoPDF 2.0 settings.

"activePDF is delighted to continue to offer completely free PDF creation to the growing number of users who can neither afford nor justify the cost of the other desktop PDF creators out there," stated Tim Sullivan, activePDF's CEO.
