set C = nothing

Example PHP:

$src="C:\test.doc";
$dest="C:\test.htm";
if (file_exists($dest)) unlink($dest);
$c= new COM("DocConverter.DocConverterX");
$c->convert($src,$dest, "-c htm  -log c:\doc.log");
if (file_exists($dest)) echo "OK"; else echo "fail:".$c->ErrorMessage;

Registration Total DOC Converter X on the Server

Usually internet information server works under default account which is not the administrator's one. When you try to use our dll, Explorer can not open the page or server hang up. You receive request page time out message.

To settle this problem do the following:

  • Login the account where internet server runs.
  • Register ActiveX:
    • Reinstall Converter X.
    • Enter regsvr32 C:\YourPath\DOCConverter.dll in command line.
  • Make sure the dll was registered. Convert any DOC file with the file: axDOCDev.exe. If it converts without any problems, ActiveX was successfully installed on your system.
  • Run docconveterx.exe.
  • Click Register button and enter the key you have received by e-mail after purchasing the product.

Note: To register Total DOC Converter X on the server you must have the administrator rights.
