    I have done this with no results. I have placed the pdf2html.exe in a folder C:\\Testit\\
    I also have file Rampart5.pdf in that folder. I have tried these two commands but all I get is a quick dos window flash but with no error and no results.

    C:\\Testit\\pdf2html.exe -onehtm C:\\Testit\\Rampart5.pdf C:\\Testit\\Rampart5.htm

    C:\\Testit\\pdf2html.exe \"-$\" \"product key here\" -onehtm C:\\Testit\\Rampart5.pdf C:\\Testit\\Rampart5.htm

    Any ideas why? I have made sure the folder gives RW authority to all.

    Those commands entered in my previous post did not have all those \. Not sure why the editor put them in.
