I have a doPDF v5 in my notebook, with Windows VISTA, and when as soon as I create a pdf file, it auto opens (using Adobe Reader).

Now I installed the last doPDF v7 in my desktop, with Windows XP, and the created pdf file doesn't open automatically (I also have Adobe Reader installed).

How can I configure this feature?

doPDF doesn't have a feature to disable auto-opening, so are you sure on the XP machine the PDF is created? After doPDF finishes the "printing" it sends a command to the PDF reader to open the resulted file. If the file is correctly created on your machine and you can view it, but it doesn't open automatically in Adobe Reader, then I'd suggest reinstalling adobe reader as it might be that the .pdf extension is not associated with it.
