Installing NovaPDF




I accidentally deleted the NovaPDF printer driver, and can no longer generate final documents. How do I go about reinstalling NovaPDF?




Version 4 of AIA Contract Documents software installs the NovaPDF print driver, and relies on it to generate PDF documents (checked drafts and finals). To reinstall the NovaPDF printer, run the novapsv.exe file (novapk.exe for those on v4.2.71.1 and higher) stored in the following location:


C:\Program Files\AIA\AIA Contract Documents Software 4


Following the install, verify the presence of the NovaPDF printer icon in your list of printers. Should this fail to appear, visit the following link to additional troubleshooting steps on the novaPDF website:
