Are you trying to write a DLL of your own design or is this a
plug-in for Acrobat? The SDK is really for writing plugins UNLESS you also
license a library such as Adobe's PDFLibrary or SPDF from Appligent
(http://www.appligent.com).

So you want to write a DLL that can "PDF things" and then call
that from another application, right?? If so, then you will need to
license a library such as the ones listed above.
