You have been redirected to this page because you indicated that you were trying to open a PDC file.
A PDC file is a protected PDF created using Safeguard PDF Security – it is a PDF file that has been protected with encryption and DRM copy controls.
Once you have registered your license you can then double-click on a .pdc file in Windows File Explorer (Windows), or on Mac, double click on a .pdc file. The protected PDF document (PDC file) will then open in the Viewer software as shown below.
You can check that the Viewer is successfully installed by clicking on the sample license and protected document below:
1. Download and install the Viewer software (if you have not already done so).
2. Click on the sample license to register.
3. Click on the protected document to open it.
If the license won’t install or the document does not open then visit our Knowledge Base for a resolution. These articles may help:
If you cannot find a solution in the Knowledge Base then you must go back to the Publisher for help. They may have restricted use in certain environments and only they can issue you with license files. Locklizard do not provide end-user support – see Our Support Terms.
The Web Viewer works in a browser on any Operating System.
The USB Viewer is preloaded onto and runs directly from a USB stick along with your protected documents on any Windows PC.
