Getting Started

Installing veraPDF

The veraPDF installer works on any Windows, Mac OS or Linux machine that’s running Java 8 or later. Read the installation instructions to find out more.

The veraPDF GUI

Once you’ve installed the software the GUI is the quickest and easiest way to try it out. You can read more about using the GUI here on this documentation site.

The veraPDF CLI

While the GUI offers access to all of veraPDF’s functionality it’s not a practical way of automating veraPDF tasks or saving the results for large batches. If you’d like a little more power and flexibility you should use the command line interface that’s also installed, our getting started guide is available here.
