Windows PDF library

PDFTron's PDF library for Windows comes in a variety of versions to best suit your needs. For example, if you are working in a windows environment we provide .NET 2.0 and .NET 4.x (with WPF) libraries, that allow you to develop in any language that targets the .NET runtime.

If you are developing on Linux or macOS platform, or need to support multiple platforms, we provide a native C/C++ library, as well as .NET Core and Java wrappers over the native library.
