Recently , i came across a requirement to Create Virtual Printer for Windows and Mac.
So i am sharing my findings with you.
Best solution is to

- Use C++ to create Virtual printer , which non-hardware based printer.This will convert your word , test file in to PDF or any other file extensions. For windows i found good solution is ,
- For Mac,
