# The following sample illustrates how to convert PDF, XPS, image, MS Office, and 
# other image document formats to XOD format.
#
# Certain file formats such as PDF, generic XPS, EMF, and raster image formats can 
# be directly converted to XOD. Other formats such as MS Office 
# (Word, Excel, Publisher, Powerpoint, etc) can be directly converted via interop. 
# These types of conversions guarantee optimal output, while preserving important 
# information such as document metadata, intra document links and hyper-links, 
# bookmarks etc. 
#
# In case there is no direct conversion available, PDFNet can still convert from 
# any printable document to XOD using a virtual printer driver. To check 
# if a virtual printer is required use Convert::RequiresPrinter(filename). In this 
# case the installing application must be run as administrator. The manifest for this 
# sample specifies appropriate the UAC elevation. The administrator privileges are 
# not required for direct or interop conversions. 
#
# Please note that PDFNet Publisher (i.e. 'pdftron.PDF.Convert.ToXod') is an
# optionally licensable add-on to PDFNet Core SDK. For details, please see
# http://www.pdftron.com/webviewer/licensing.html.
