So are you trying to get Acrobat to display a non-PDF - OR
you simply want to convert from xxx to PDF (ala WebCapture which does
HTML, TEXT, etc. to PDF)?

What char*? Do you mean the ASPathName? ASPathNames are NOT
char*'s - they are an opaque datatype and differ from platform to
platform. If not, what do you mean?

Again, if you are creating a new document from scratch, you
should do a PDDocCreate() and then fill in the PDF data using the
appropriate Cos calls.
