How to convert from PCL files to PDF/A files?

Is it possible to create PDF/A documents with PDF PCL Converter? I'm using v.2.7. It creates PDF Documents of PDF-version 1.5, but they seem not to fit PDF/A requirements. How can I achieve that?

And another question is how to use the mapfont option correctly? I tried it but it seemed to have no effect. But I have to use the mapfont option to get the fonts embedded, is this right?

You can run following command lines to use mapfont.ini file,

pcltool.exe -mapfont "mapfont.ini" C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf
pcltool.exe -mapfont default C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf
pcltool.exe -mapfont "C:\mapfont.ini" C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf
pcltool.exe -mapfont "C:\mapfont.ini" -embedfonts yes C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf
pcltool.exe -mapfont "C:\mapfont.ini" -embedfonts no C:\in.pcl C:\out.pdf

How to convert characters which rendered embed fonts and subset fonts to editable Word document?

Hi,
I'm afraid my question must not have been clear. I have restated them hoping for resolution.

1. I wanted to know why my API calls were not able to read the file I attached earlier. It works with other files but the attached file does not work. You have given me a work around but I want to know why they don't work with this file. Is this something that's going to be fixed? Is the problem with the fonts?

2. The second question wasn't about using my API commands. I know how to use them. I've been using them for years. They do work except for on the attached file. The question was are there api calls to do the following:

ocr2any.exe -ocr -ocrmode 2 D:\test.pdf D:\out.pdf

Can this only be done from the command line or by Shell() type api calls?

3. So for what I need to do I need to purchase the Server License or the Developer License?

Yes, this problem is caused by embedded fonts in your PDF file. Your PDF file contains embedded fonts, the characters which rendered by these embedded fonts could not be extracted properly. You may open this PDF file in Adobe PDF Reader, select all text contents and copy/paste them into MS Word, you will notice the extracted characters are become garbage characters.

In order to convert this PDF file to Word document, you may use VeryPDF OCR to Any Converter Command Line, you may download it from this web page to try,

after you download it, you can run following command line to convert your PDF file to Word document with a good OCR engine,

Above Command Line will use OCR engine to convert all characters from your PDF file to an editable Word document, the OCR accuracy should larger than 98% at least.

Thanks for your message, ocr2any.exe is a Command Line application, you can run it by manual in the Command Line Windows, you can also call it from your VB code by Shell() function.

How to convert from PDF files to Plain Text files from my VB application?

1. Can you tell me why my API commands for this don't work and, is there a future plan to make it work? I'm using the VB API's shown below.

Private Declare Function PDF2TextBuffer Lib "pdf2txt.dll" (ByVal pdfFile As String, ByRef lngBufferSize As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function pdf2txt Lib "pdf2txt.dll" Alias "PDF2TXT" (ByVal Source As String, ByVal Dest As String) As Long

2. Do the below commands exist in an API or do I have to call the command line utility from my existing code?

3. The intent is our server machine would perform this work. That means shipping the exe if there is no API. Can you give me a price for both approaches please? Would this be considered a Server License for 395.00 or a Developer (Royalty free) License for 1995.00. I'm not clear. I believe I need the Developer's License.

Thanks so much for your help.

>>Private Declare Function pdf2txt Lib "pdf2txt.dll" Alias "PDF2TXT" (ByVal Source As String, ByVal Dest As String) As Long

Thanks for your message, your code is no problem. However, if you are using the VB.NET, you may change from "Long" to "Integer" to try again, for example,

Private Declare Function PDF2TextBuffer Lib "pdf2txt.dll" (ByVal pdfFile As String, ByRef lngBufferSize As Long) As Integer
Private Declare Function pdf2txt Lib "pdf2txt.dll" Alias "PDF2TXT" (ByVal Source As String, ByVal Dest As String) As Integer

>>2. Do the below commands exist in an API or do I have to call the command line utility from my existing code?

Yes, PDF2TextBuffer and pdf2txt two functions are exist in the "pdf2txt.dll" library, you can call them from your VB or VB.NET code directly.

You can also call pdf2txt.exe Command Line application directly, this is another solution for you.

Thanks for your message, yes, for the "VeryPDF OCR to Any Converter Command Line" software, the Server License is $395.00 per server and Developer License is USD$1995.00 per developer, you may purchase it from our website directly,

You can use Shell() or CreateProcess() function in VB or VB.NET to run ocr2any.exe directly, this method is very easy for you.

pcl to pdf hangs during conversion by PclToPDFCom.exe COM component

PclToPDFCom.exe hangs during conversion. There are about 60 or 70 instances of pcltoo.dll running. All show 0 cpu utilization and all are 1,776K in memory. The com component is using an excessive amount of cpu 25%. I am running 10 threads in a windows service each thread is calling the com component. If the com server does not terminate, all of my threads are blocked waiting for the one active pcl to pdf conversion to finish.

Thanks for your message, you may run following command lines to kill pcltool and PCLtoPDFCom from your system first,

tskill pcltool
tskill pcltool.dll
tskill PCLtoPDFCom

and then call PclToPDFCom.exe to convert the PCL files to PDF files again, could you get it work at this time?

btw, you may also run "C:\Program Files (x86)\VeryPDF PCL Converter v3.1\pcltool.exe" to convert more PCL files to PDF files at same time to try again, could you get pcltool.exe works properly?
