Then, click Run on the menu to open the Run dialog box. After that, please type “cmd” in the edit box of the Run dialog box and click OK.

The second step is to type a command line. Before you type a command line, first you need to know the basic usage of the main executable file of VeryPDF Document Converter, which is doc2pdf [options] <-i input file> [-o output file]. Moreover, you need to know the directories of the executable file and the input file. And at last, you should choose a folder to export the result file.

The following is an example which can convert a DOC to a fax machine compatible file in the format TIFF-F: "C:\docPrint Pro v5.0\doc2pdf.exe" -i C:\in.doc -o D:\out.tiff-f.

C:\in.doc and D:\out.tiff-f represent the directory of input file and that of the output file respectively. –i and –o stand for input and output respectively.

Press Enter on your keyboard after you type a command line. When you see Result Code = 1in the command prompt window, that means the task is finished.
