If you need to deliver the dll of the PDF Converter with your application to your registered customers, you need a developer license, if you need to use the PDF Converter only for an internal application (inhouse application) you may want to license a developer license or the appropriate license pack.

Please find here a VB sample that uses the ActiveX interface of CDIntf to convert a Word document to PDF.

Please note that we released version 2.50 of the PDF Converter, you can download it an use it for evaluation, also please note that with the demo version you receive a full Developer manual "Common Driver Interface 210.pdf" that you check in case you need information about any specific function:

Here is the code:

Code: Select all

Private Sub Command12_Click()

    'Create an instance of CDIntfEx
    Dim pdf As New CDIntfEx.CDIntfEx

   ' Declare the Word application and Word document
    Dim WordApp As Word.Application
    Dim WordDoc As Word.Document
    ' Printer initialization (the printer should be installed on the system)
    pdf.DriverInit "Amyuni PDF Converter"
    pdf.EnablePrinter LicenseTo, ActivationCode
    ' ***** Printing a Word document to PDF *****
    ' Set file name options
    pdf.FileNameOptionsEx = NoPrompt + UseFileName + Concatenate
    pdf.DefaultFileName = "c:\Temp\Testdoc.pdf"
    Set WordApp = New Word.Application
    Set WordDoc = WordApp.Documents.Open("c:\Temp\test.doc", , , , , , , , , , , True)
    ' Enable the printer before each printout
    pdf.EnablePrinter LicenseTo, ActivationCode
    WordDoc.Application.ActivePrinter = "Amyuni PDF Converter"
    ' Print the Word document (concatenated to the first pdf file)
    WordDoc.PrintOut Background:=False
    'Quit Word
    'Free the used objects
    Set WordDoc = Nothing
    Set WordApp = Nothing
    ' Reset 0ptions to zero
    pdf.FileNameOptions = 0
End Sub
Hope this helps, if you need more info please let us know 8)
