Streaming large documents to PDFG


Level 8
Level 8

Hi all,

I have a question for you.

I am about to start a project where I need to stream one document at a time from a .NET application to PDFG and convert them to PDF. The documents can be arbitrarily big and I would like to know if there are some kind of issues with large files (eg. larger than 5 Mb)?

Can anyone of you help me out here

Thanks in advance

We have a customer that converts very large documents from MSWord and WordPerfect to PDF using PDF Generator.  They have successfully converted 1GB documents however it can take a very long time (over an hour).  They are using a Watched Folder interface however (as Hodmi previously indicated) we have had to tweak their timeout settings to prevent LiveCycle from killing the task.

I would run the largest files you expect to see through and then if you encounter timeouts, contact Adobe support.  They can walk you through how to increase your timeout values.
