Font folder problem in PCL to PDF Converter

I’m trying to use your VeryPDF PCL Converter SDK. I need to use the fonts located in the windows font folder to convert a pcl file; for that reason I’m trying to use “-fontfolder” option, but it doesn’t work at all. For testing purpose I built an exe called test.exe that must be called in this way:

test.exe -fontfolder “C:\WINDOWS\fonts” pcl.pcl pcl.pdf

this command line doesn’t work because in the directory containing the exe I deleted the “fonts” directory and the mapfont.ini file.
So how can I force the sdk to use the windows font folder instead of the one included in the package I downloaded (pcltoolsdk.zip)?
Does the “-fontfolder” parameter work?

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,
==========================================
-fontfolder parameter doesn’t support Windows Font Folder, it is only support the font files in “fonts” directory, for example,

test.exe -fontfolder “C:\Program Files\VeryPDF PCL Converter v2.0\fonts” pcl.pcl pcl.pdf

please advice (provide command line for htmltools)

Regards
=========================================
Htmltools can’t convert RTF file to PDF file properly, however, we suggest you may download DOC to Any Converter from following page to try, you can use DOC to Any Converter to convert RTF file to PDF file correctly,

http://www.verydoc.com/doc-to-any.html

VeryPDF
=========================================
I was using doc to any to convert rtf to pdf.

It works fine when I call program from DOS Prompt, but when I call from perl (using system, exec, ,,,) image missing.

Please advice

Regards,
=========================================
Please refer to Example #7 at following web page, we hoping this example will work fine to you,

http://www.verydoc.com/doc-to-any-shell.html

Example #7 (Run conversion via “docPrint_Service.exe” application),

docPrint Service can be used to run a Command Line from current active user account or a special user account, this tool is useful to overcome permission restrictions in SYSTEM and Non-Interactive user accounts.

Please by following steps to use docPrint Service,

1. Download docPrint_Service.zip and unzip it to a folder,

2. Run docPrint_Service.exe application, you will see an icon appear in tray area,

3. You can run following command lines to test it first, “docPrint_client.exe” will deliver the Command Line to docPrint_Service.exe application, docPrint_Service.exe application will execute the Command Line from active user account automatically,

docPrint_client.exe nowait “C:\VeryDOC\doc2any.exe” C:\test.doc C:\out.pdf
docPrint_client.exe wait “C:\VeryDOC\doc2any.exe” C:\test.doc C:\out.pdf

4. You can call “docPrint_client.exe” from your code, please refer to a simple C# code at below,

public partial class rundoc2any: System.Web.UI.Page
{
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        Process proc = new Process();
        proc.StartInfo.FileName = “C:\\VeryDOC\\docPrint_client.exe”;
        string strArguments = “wait C:\\VeryDOC\\doc2any.exe C:\\test.doc C:\\test.pdf”;
        Console.WriteLine(strArguments);
        proc.StartInfo.Arguments = @strArguments;
        proc.Start();
        proc.WaitForExit();
        Response.Write(“File has been successfully converted”);
    }
}

5. Close Remote Desktop and leave this user logged in.

*Please Notice: After you reboot the server, you need login your server via Remote Desktop with this user account (“doc2pdf_service.exe” was installed inside this user account), and close Remote Desktop, leave this user logged in, when you call docPrint_client.exe application, the conversion will be executed from this user account automatically.

VeryPDF
=========================================
Could you please give one example in perl.
=========================================
OK, please refer to PERL example at below,

You can just change above ASP code to following PERL code:

@args = (“C:\\VeryDOC\\docPrint_client.exe”, “wait”, “C:\\VeryDOC\\doc2any.exe”, “C:\\test.doc”, “C:\\test.pdf”);
system(@args) == 0 or die “system @args failed: $?”

PDF Editor Toolkit

VBA based verypdf install

In this .zip file are a test spreadsheet “VeryPDF Test”, that tries to watermark and secure two files that are located in its own directory, Testv5.zip and Testv6.zip (included in the zip)  If you open these files in Acrobat, and go to File | Properties, you will see that Testv5 has PDF Version 1.4 (Acrobat 5.x) and Testv6 had PDF Version 1.5 (Acrobat 6.x). 

Testing the generation from a VBA app works for the 5.x version (and also worked on PDF Version 1.3 (Acrobat 4.x), but did not work for the 6.x version (and also failed on PDF Version 1.7 (Acrobat 7.x).  The files are otherwise almost identical.

Could you take at look at these files and advise us how to proceed?

===========================
We have fixed this problem to you, please download the new version of verywrite.dll from following URL,

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

please use new version of verywrite.dll to overwrite old version, then you will get it work with compressed PDF format.

docPrint Pro

PDF to PDF conversion -> adding encryption and header

I have been successfully using your DocPrint Pro product for some time now to convert rtf files to pdf files from the command line.

Now I have the need to create pdf files with bookmarks – the bookmarks coming from the heading styles in the rtf files (which are generated by MS Word).  I still need to do this from the command line.

Do you have an update to DocPrint Pro that can do this.  If not, can any of your other products do this?  It is essential that it is done from the command line, not a GUI.
===========================
Hi again,

In addition to my question below, one other option would be a command line utility that can take a pdf that already has bookmarks, and from the command line can convert this into an encrypted pdf with the same bookmarks, and add either a header or watermark.  So:

input: pdf with bookmarks.

output: pdf with bookmarks, password to open, restricted printing/copying and watermark.

Do you have a tool that could do that?

===========================
Yes, our Encrypt PDF Command Line v2.3 product has this function, please download Encrypt PDF Command Line v2.3 from following page to try,
