Printing mathcad files as PDF using VB.NET

Hi,

We need to print the mathcad (.xmcd) files as PDF (thru the VB.NET application).

We have got PDFCreator component which will be creating the PDF files thru code in VB.net.

But PDFCreator throws the message as "this file is not printable".

Let us know if you have any inputs on the same.

We are using Win XP,Mathcad 15,PDFcreator 1.2.3,.NET 3.5 etc

Thanks in advance.

If you just print from within Mathcad, does that work?

Have you tried using other PDF printers ("Adobe Reader" for example)?

Re: Printing mathcad files as PDF using VB.NET

PDFCreator can be installed as a normal printer in windows. You just print from mathcad using that printer. Works well. Why mess with VB.net. Follow the KISS principle. Keep It Simple Solution.
