Topic: Using Distiller Programmatically
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 127098

I have a ĎCí program that executes the following line of code:

hInst = ShellExecute( NULL, "open", "acrodist.exe", lpParam, NULL, SW_HIDE);

The input files are postscript. I would like this program to reside on a shared drive so that many users will be able to access it. I can put the program on a shared drive and execute it from my computer Ė this works fine. I do have distiller on my system. It doesnít work from clients that do not have Distiller installed. How would I accomplish what I want to do? Or, is there another way to programmatically use Distiller? Donít want to install Distiller on multiple computers. Iím assuming that I would need Distiller as a server product.
