PDF X-Change Viewer

This is a silent installer for PDF-XChange Viewer, an alternative to Adobe Reader. PDF-XChange Viewer is free for private and commercial use.

See the help file topic "Silent installation" for more information about various switches.

This is an amended version of the original package further below which uses both the 32bit and 64bit installers and exit codes appropriately to bypass the incompatabilities of each with the other OS. The install checks are also accurate as well. I have used this so I can use one package on 32bit XP and 64bit Windows 7.
