How can I call PDF to Text Converter from Windows Service to convert PDF files to Text files?

I was hoping you could help me to troubleshoot a problem I am having with VeryPDF PDF2TXT V3.2 when run from a service. Is there any type of debug information that I can have it write to a log file when run?

The issue is that VeryPDF PDF2TXT is hanging when run from a service on a Windows 2008 Server. I can see the process in Task Manager, which remains there indefinitely until manually killed. When VeryPDF PDF2TXT is run in a windows session on the server it works fine. The command line I am using is as follows:

e:\programs\mie\apps\VeryPDF2TXT\pdf2txt.exe "e:\data\mie\training\generic\source\2014-05-18-02-00-50ChartMaxxIO.pdf" "e:\data\mie\training\generic\hold\2014-05-18-02-00-50ChartMaxxIO.pdf.txt" -format -unicode -breaker

There are other Windows 2008 servers where the VeryPDF PDF2TXT is being run from a service and there are no issues. I need to find out why this particular server is having issues. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Below are two screen shots: 1) the Task Manager showing the hung process and 2) the Operating System details.

Thanks,
