Where Did MODI Go?


Microsoft Office Document Imaging (MODI) was removed in Microsoft Office 2010.

Microsoft Office Document Image Writer is a component of MODI, and if you or your business is dependent on this component you are now faced with finding an alternative to this virtual image printer for converting your Office documents to TIFF.

But wait – Our TIFF Image Printer can do just what you’re looking for!

Although Microsoft does not provide support, we at Peernet have been selling and supporting our virtual TIFF Image Printer with far more functionality and options than the Microsoft Office Document Image Writer for over 15 years now. And this product supports all Microsoft supported Windows desktop operating systems (32-bit and 64-bit).

All you need to do is purchase the TIFF Image Printer, and once installed, just download the zip file configure MODI, expand zip file and execute the file ConfigureMODI.bat to create a new printer in the printer and faxes folder named Microsoft Office Document Image Writer. This printer will essentially replace the Microsoft Office Document Image Writer you used to have as part of MODI and is configure by default to create 200 dpi monochrome TIFF images.

Now just print like normal by selecting the Microsoft Office Document Image Writer and you will be prompted to create a TIFF file (now using our TIFF Image Printer as the conversion process behind it!).

Further notes & integration

And whats more, the TIFF Image Printer can be used from within VBA scripts or other methods of automation just as you used the Microsoft Office Document Image Writer. However, you do not even need to change any code, after you install the TIFF Image Printer, just download and excute the command file here and it will create a copy of the TIFF Image Printer 10.0 named Microsoft Office Document Image Writer with the appropriate settings to mimic the Microsoft Office Document Image Writer you would have received as part of MODI.
