Hi all,

I need to develop plugin for PDF - WORD format. For this i'm having the AcrobatSDK6.0. They have given some samples to get idea. when i run the BasicPlugin program it will not loading the plugin in Acrobat viewer.

1) I have given the AcroSDKPIDir varibaleName with C:\Program Files\AdobeAcrobatViewer\plug_ins VariableValue.
2) And i have given Executable file for Debug session into C:\Program Files\AdobeAcrobatViewer\AcrobatViewer.exe

The program is executing correctly but the Plugin are not loaded into the viewer.

The BasicPlugIn.api is automatically copied into C:\Program Files\AdobeAcrobatViewer\plug_ins directory.

I'm using Adobe Reader6.0 and Acorbat viewer. In Adobe Reader documentation they said that

1) Write the code for your plug-in. When possible, ensure that the plug-in works correctly in the full Acrobat viewer (Standard or Professional) before trying to Reader-enable it.

I downloaded the Acrobat viewer form adobe site(i don't know whther it is standard or professional). This is free software.And i installed this too to my machine.

I'm getting struggling with running the sample. Is there is no chance to run the sample using Acrobat Viewer. Guide me to run the plugin sample in visualstudio6.0. And give me more information about to create plugin.

Is there any builtin functionality in acrobat Reader or some other which convert pdf - doc(word) format.

How can i overcome this difficulty.
