set C = nothing

if (file_exists($dest)) unlink($dest);
$c= new COM("PDFConverter.PDFConverterX");
$c->convert($src,$dest, "-c XLS  -log c:\pdf.log");
if (file_exists($dest)) echo "OK"; else echo "fail:".$c->ErrorMessage;

Registration Total PDF 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, the browser can not open the page or the server hangs up. You receive '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\PDFConverter.dll in command line.
  • Make sure the dll was registered. Convert any PDF file with the file: axPDFDev.exe. If it converts without any problems ActiveX was successfully installed on your system.
  • Run htmlconveterx.exe.
  • Click 'Register' button and enter the key you have received by e-mail after purchasing the product.

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