How to best convert PDF documents to XPS format RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to convert a large number of documents from PDF format to XPS format.  I can do this with a vb 2013 program which uses  axAcroPDF.LoadFile and axAcroPDF.printAll, printing to an XPS Document Writer printer.  However, this requires the interactive entry of a file name for each document.

    Is there a way to automate this, grabbing the name of the PDF document and using it, appending .xps instead of .pdf, for the output document?  If not, do you have a free or inexpensive conversion tool you can suggest?

    Hi,

    Since axAcroPDF is a tool which belongs to third-party and there is no such built-in library in .net framework, I am afraid that this is out of the support range for this forum, you could post issues related to that reader control in https://forums.adobe.com/community/adobe_reader_forums to get supports.  

    Thanks for your understanding.

    Regards.

  • Thank you.  I did post it there and there were some suggestions.  I still do not have a complete solution.
