Installation instructions

Choose one of the following methods:

1. Download and run the "pdfRider0.5.1-setup.exe" (reccomended)
2. Download and unpack the "PDFRider0.5.1-bin.zip". ".config" files goes into the user AppData (Roaming), under "PDFRider" directory (you need to create it).
3. Download and compile the source code by yourself.


PDFRider is written in C# on Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 (WPF), using the Model-View-ViewModel design pattern. I don't think that this application is suited for MVVM, but I wanted to use the pattern to study it. Please, feel free to submit comments, errors, or any other stuff that could grow this application better.

PDFRider uses the system culture for localization if a corresponding localization file is provided. You can simply made your translation by yourself: just copy {app}\Locales\en-US\LocTable-en-US.xaml to {app}\Locales\your-culture-id\LocTable-your-culture-id.xaml and translate the strings.
Version 0.4 uses LocTranslate to make the localization easier.

Reviews for this release

The Babylon toolbar can easily be disabled by changing the pdfrider.config file. Delete the line with "ShowAd"

I like your application, but your including of the Babylon toolbar in it is a big turn off. I hope you will abandone that in future versions since many regard Babylon as rogue-ware. You are at risk of your application coming on black-lists. Not good for karma :) The file "Source files with pdftk" does not contain any source codes.
