Based on my understanding, you should belong to these tools, Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional,postscript.exe,gs811w32.exe

Postscript.exe : it include the script for convertting.

Gs811w32.exe : The virtual machine work for printting

Actually. we can convert word document to pdf document by the script file of host

try to check the code as follows:


var files = WScript.Arguments;
var fso = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
var word = new ActiveXObject("Word.Application");
var PDF = new ActiveXObject("PDFDistiller.PDFDistiller.1");
word.ActivePrinter = "MS Publisher Color Printer";

//files(0) the name of word
//files(1) the path after being converted
//files.length : the count of files need to convert
var docfile = files(0);
var psfile = files(1) + fso.GetBaseName(files(0)) + ".ps";
var pdffile = files(1) + fso.GetBaseName(files(0)) + ".pdf";
var logfile = files(1) + fso.GetBaseName(files(0)) + ".log";

var doc = word.Documents.Open(docfile);
//WORD convert to PS
word.PrintOut(false, false, 0, psfile);

//PS convert to PDF

fso.GetFile(psfile).Delete();//Delete the script
fso.GetFile(logfile).Delete();//delete the log 

Code :


public void StartConvertPDF()
 Process proc = new Process();
 proc.StartInfo.FileName = "cmd.exe";
 proc.StartInfo.WorkingDirectory = @"c:";
 proc.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;
 proc.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
 proc.StartInfo.RedirectStandardInput = true; //redirect
 proc.StandardInput.WriteLine(@"cscript //nologo c:ConvertDoc2PDF.js c:test.doc c:");
