PCL Converter

Installation problems for VeryPDF.PCLtoPDFCom

I had the pcl converter sdk installed while testing it before I purchased. After purchasing, I uninstalled (uninstall.vbs) the trail and installed what was an old version from the link provided during purchase. Upon you prior support instruction, I downloaded another copy from you and uninstalled the old and reinstalled the new. Now, attempting to access the converter from its program id fails with:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {76D7DC95-4F1A-4D16-A38A-8162AFF33E0C} failed due to the following error: 8007007e The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E).

I downloaded the sdk trial from the website and tried to install it and I get the same error.

Here's the relevant code I am using to perform com interop:

System.Type VeryPDFType = System.Type.GetTypeFromProgID("VeryPDF.PCLtoPDFCom");
VeryPDF.PCLtoPDFCom veryPDFCom = (VeryPDF.PCLtoPDFCom)System.Activator.CreateInstance(VeryPDFType);

I have given full control to Everyone on the files in the bin dir of your code.



Maybe the registry has more entries to PCLtoPDFCom.exe in your system, you may run regedit.exe to open the Registry Editor first, search and delete all items which contain "76D7DC95-4F1A-4D16-A38A-8162AFF33E0C" CLSID, after that, you may run "install.vbs" to reinstall PCLtoPDFCom into your system again, you will able to get it work fine.

PDF Stitcher, PDF to Image Converter

How to stitch multiple PDF pages into a long page TIFF image file?

Do you have any programs or tools that would merge pages in a multipage tiff into one page? for example, a 20 page tiff would merge the 20 mages into a long single page.


Thanks for your message, we don't have this software yet, however, you can use VeryPDF PDFstitch software to stitch your PDF pages into one page first, and then use PDF to Image Converter Command Line software to convert the stitched PDF file to TIFF image file again, we hope this solution will useful to you.


Did try PDFstitch works very well merges a 50 page pdf very fast, then used Pdf2image to convert to tiff fails, the multi page pdf works is there a solution for this ??

C:\_support\pdf2image_win\pdf2image_win\pdf2img.exe -color24to8 -r 300 -multipage -compress 5 E:\test.pdf e:\test2.tif
Failed to Display Page #1

This problem seems caused by too long page height in your PDF file, you may reduce the resolution in pdf2img.exe to try again, for example,

C:\pdf2image_win\pdf2img.exe -color24to8 -r 72 -multipage -compress 5 E:\test.pdf e:\test2.tif

You may also download VeryDOC Postscript to Image Converter Command Line from this web page to try, VeryDOC Postscript to Image Converter Command Line software can be used to convert from both Postscript and PDF files to image files and without maximum number of file size (or page size or resolution) limitation,


after you download it, you can run following command line to convert your PDF file to TIFF file properly,

ps2image.exe C:\input.pdf C:\output.tif
ps2image.exe -r 300 C:\input.pdf C:\output.tif
ps2image.exe -r 300 -b 1 -c g4 C:\input.pdf C:\output.tif

PCL Converter

How to call pcltoolsdk.dll library from a 64bit EXE application?


I am trying to use platform invocation from c# to invoke the convert method on pcltoolsdk.dll but that dll is 32 bit and my application is 64 bit. I cannot use your com server because it won't register correctly (different support ticket).

Can you provide 64 bit version of your dlls??


Thanks for your message, pcltoolsdk.dll is a 32bit DLL library, you can only call it from a 32bit EXE application. If you wish call it from a 64bit EXE application, you should call PCLtoPDFCom.exe instead of pcltoolsdk.dll, PCLtoPDFCom.exe is a COM interface based on pcltoolsdk.dll library, PCLtoPDFCom.exe can be called from both 32bit and 64bit EXE applications.

If you wish to use PCLtoPDFCom.exe, you need register it into your system first.

You can run install.vbs to register PCLtoPDFCom.exe into your system, you can also run a cmd window by administrator privilege, and then run following command line to register PCLtoPDFCom.exe into your system,

PCLtoPDFCom.exe /regserver

after you register "PCLtoPDFCom.exe" into your system successful, you can call "VeryPDF.PCLtoPDFCom" from your VBScript code to convert from PCL files to PDF files easily, for example,

set VeryPDFCom = CreateObject("VeryPDF.PCLtoPDFCom")
Set filesys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strFolder = filesys.GetParentFolderName(WScript.ScriptFullName)
strFolder = filesys.GetParentFolderName(strFolder)

strReturn = ""
nFileIndex = 0

strInFile = strFolder & "\test\test.pcl"
strOutFile = strFolder & "\bin\_test.pdf"
strCmd = "-$ XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX """ & strInFile & """ """ & strOutFile & """"
strReturn = strReturn & VeryPDFCom.PCLtoPDF(strCmd)
nFileIndex = nFileIndex+1

msgbox strReturn
