Q: What do I need to work with PS/PDF files?
A: APFill allows you to measure the ink coverage of PDF files. This method is more accurate than measuring directly from the screen. To enable the PDF files support, APFill needs GPL Ghostscript 9.20 to be installed. It is a AGPL library for PDF files and can be downloaded from https://github.com/ArtifexSoftware/ghostpdl-downloads/releases/tag/gs920/ .

Q: "Error while unpacking program, code LP5. Please report to author." Is it a bug?
It's not a bug of our software, actually, it's caused by some CA software such as CA Internet Security Suite. AOL users may also have this problem. AOL users please try following solution: Restore or click on AOL Safety and security. On the left is listed FIREWALL. You click to open Firewall. Then click to open Privacy Wall. On left side of panel is Program permissions- make sure program permission is enabled. Then click on View Program Permissions. After Program permissions load, you need to add the apfill.exe (Normally in C:\Program Files\APFill\) to this list via New Allowed Application-it has a browser built in so you can find the .exe. Also try to update your Spyware software.
