Hi!

I would like to install PDF generator on a dedicated machine and other LiveCycle components to another machine. How to make Process mgmt aware of PDF generator location?

Of course, I can make PDF generator calls using web service component. But it seems to me a bad solution.

Is this possible at all?

Thanks for the answer. It scarried me a bit. Do I understand it well that all these service components:

Assembler:

- InvokeDDX

- Invoke DDX on OneDocument

Conver PDF

- toImage2

- toPS2

DocConverter

- convert to pdf/a

- validate pdf/a

PDF Utilities

- clone pdf

- convert pdf do xdp

- convert xdp to pdf

- get pdf properties

- get pdf save mode

- multiple clones of pdf

- set pdf save mode

Distiller

- CreatePDF2

Generate PDF

- CreatePDF2

- ExportPDF2

- HtmlFileToPDF

- HtmlToPDF2

These all I can throw away and tell to our suppliers: don't use them and write your own ones calling PDFG, Assmebler using SOAP?

I can't believe it is true 😮
