Instalation problems WinXP VB6

Post by GerardoManrique » Tue Feb 14, 2012 4:19 pm

Hi There,

I just installed (and bought) the last release of this product in order to use it with VB6 over Windows XP (yes... kind of old). The instalation runs perfect as well as the restart, but when I include this line in my form

Dim PDFPFactory As New PXCComLib.CPXCControlEx

and try to debug I receive a message saying:

Compile error: User-defined type not defined

I tryed to reference pxccom.tlb as the help file says but this tlb doesn't exist in my entire C unit.

Any idea of what's wrong here and how to solve it?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hello Gerardo Manrique

A copy of the file should be located in:
C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange PRO 4 SDK\pdfSaver
(this is the default path and you will of course need to update it if you installed in a custom folder)

Best,
Stefan

Thanks Stefan!

Unfurnatelly my install folder is:

C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange 4 API\pdfSaver

and there are just 4 files:

dinfo.dsf
drvui40.dll
PdfSaver4.exe
titrules.js

I have no PDF-XChange PRO 4 SDK folder.

I've searched inside my entire C unit (using windows of course) and there's no pxccom.tlb... thinking that this will solve the problem.

Am I missing anything?

Hi,

Are you sure you downloaded the SDK ?

Looks like maybe you did not download the full SDK - can you advise which install file you used ?

Thanks

I used PDFX4API.exe

Should I download another one?

Hi,

that is the correct installation file - so it should be located either in ;

C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange 4 API\pdfSaver

I have just run the installer here and it is there as expected - are you sure you did not uncheck the examples being installed during the installation process?

You should also have a folder ;

C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange 4 API\Examples\APIExamples\

Do you see this with various example folders and content for different development tools such as C,JS, C#, CB, Delphi etc ?

I think I got it... I was trying to add manually the dlls as references to my proyect, and I was unable because... they were already added. I just have to select PDF-XChange V4.0 Type Library as reference and that solved this problem.

Thanks for your support guys. Reviewing your tips helped me find my mistake.
