    Those experiencing difficulties getting this to work in El Capitan might like to try RWTS PDFwriter (google github rwts pdfwriter). RWTS PDFwriter is closely based on Lisanet PDFwriter, but avoids the sandboxing restrictions on print drivers introduced in El Capitan, and also provides automatic configuration of the printer driver to simplify installation.

    IMPORTANT UNDER 10.11.x : When adding the printer in preferences, instead of using the Generic Postscript Printer pick Other.. and navigate to /Library/Printers/Lisanet/PDFwriter/pdfwriter.ppd and select that. Works great to generate PDF from Windows programs under CrossOver.

    Works fine here in 10.11 El Capitan, just used it to print a secure PDF form from Acrobat Pro so it could be opened in Preview. Installation does require an extra step beyond the instructions - "Lisanet PDFwriter" does not automatically appear as the printer software, you have to select the driver manually when you are setting up the new printer. Click on Use: Generic PostScript Printer, in that dropdown menu choose "Other..." and navigate to the ppd file at /Library/Printers/Lisanet/PDFwriter/PDFwriter.ppd

    I find the way to use PDFWriter on OSX 10.11 Juste you see that the Lisanet driver is not présent when you add printer... so you can add it manualy on the following path ! /Library/Printers/Lisanet/PDFwriter/PDFwriter.ppd It working fine now !!! thanks to me ;-)
