For COM+ (i.e. with IIS) users
One very important note is that
ConvertDoc.EXE is both an executable application AND an ActiveX component.
That is, the file, ConvertDoc.EXE, can be ran as a stand alone application,
and, can be referenced as a component within your development environment.
First, be sure to uninstall any
previous versions of Convert Doc' before using the ActiveX version. Next,
For Visual Basic users, simply make a reference to the
ConvertDoc.EXE application in the Tools\References menu item. Once done you
now have access to the ConvertDoc component. In other development
environments such as VBA you may use something similar to the lines of code
below to create an instance of the 'Convert Doc' application object:
Dim oConvertDocObject as Object
Set oConvertDocObject = CreateObject("Convertdoc.clsConvertDoc")
Directly below is some VBS (Visual Basic Script). You could put the
following 3 lines in a text file, call it Test.VBS and give it a go:
set converter =
result = converter.DoCommandLine("/JE:\Jobs\Test.SII")
Here is some sample code
illustrating its usage:
To download click the following
WithEvents cd As ConvertDoc.clsConvertDoc
Private Sub Command1_Click()
Set cd = New clsConvertDoc
cd.Key = "" ' Assign Key To
the 'Final Key', given upon registration.
' Run by the command line.
See 'Convert Doc'
documentation for a full listing of
' switches and options.
If (lRetVal = 0) Then
Call MsgBox("Success", ,
' DoCommandLine() Return Values
' 0 = Success
' -1 = Shareware expired
' -2 = Command line String Emtpy
' -3 = Missing required command line argument(s)
' -4 = Some error occurred
during the processing, create a log or use verbose switch for details
Set cd = Nothing
Sub cd_OnError(lErrorNumber As Long,
sErrorString As String)
Call MsgBox("Error " & CStr(lErrorNumber)
& " occurred. [" & sErrorString & "]")
As you can see from the code
above, the ActiveX wrapper simply wraps the command line feature. So, to
learn what you can do with the ActiveX, please refer to the 'Using the
Command Line' section of the
'Convert Doc' users manual. Also, you will have to change the path
information in the DoCommandLine() method for your particular set of files
you are comparing.
emulates doing the command line, but through the COM interface.
-1 = Shareware expired
-2 = Command line String empty or invalid
-3 = Missing required command line argument(s)
-4 = Some error occurred during the processing, create a log or use verbose
switch for details
OnError(lErrorNumber As Long, sErrorString As String)
When an error occurs
this event is triggered supplying both the error code and description.
This can be very helpful while troubleshooting and developing.
