Topic: Extracting a thumbnail from a PDF

Hi!

I'm programming in ASP/VBScript and I need something like an ActiveX component for the following purpose:

I need the script to extract the first page of the pdf on the web server and convert it to a jpeg with the A4 proportional size of 200 times 283 pixels.

Can this be done (I have found a .NET script for the purpose - http://www.codeproject.com/dotnet/pdfthumbnail.asp - but I'm not ready to make the transition to .NET just yet)
