Referencing and Deploying the Assembly

The easiest way to reference and deploy DynamicPDF Converter in your project is by installing the NuGet package from directly within Visual Studio's Package Manager. Alternatively, you can follow the instructions here to reference and deploy the assembly manually.

NOTE: We recommend installing using the NuGet packages, as this is the easiest and least error-prone installation method.

Referencing From NuGet

To install the NuGet Package install it directly within Visual Studio's Package Manager.

Manual Installation

To install manually, download the assembly from the DynamicPDF website. The downloaded ZIP file (DynamicPDFConverterForNETv3.04.zip) contains the assembly for .NET Standard 2.0.

Assembly Name Assembly Version Framework Version
DynamicPDF.Converter.NETStandard20.dll 3.x.x .NET Standard 20

Referencing the Assembly

To reference the assembly from Visual Studio, open your project's references window (right click on the project's References and select "Add Reference..."). Then, from the Add Reference window select the "Browse" tab and browse to the bin folder where the DLLs are installed. Select the DynamicPDF.Converter.NETStandard20.dll. Select OK to complete the selection.

32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) Versions

The DynamicPDF.Converter dll file is built using the AnyCPU option and therefore does not require different 32-bit or 64 bit builds. The DynamicPDF.Converter.NETStandard20.dll can run natively in either 32-bit or 64-bit environments.

Licensing

Although the evaluation version of DynamicPDF Converter is fully functional, PDFs created using the evaluation edition include a watermark on the PDF documents. Removing this watermark requires purchasing the application and adding a license key. A license key can be added to a .config file or programmatically in an application. Retrieve license keys from DynamicPDF's Customer Area of our website,http://www.dynamicpdf.com/CustomerArea.

NOTE: If adding or updating the Converter license key in a .config file, you must restart the DynamicPDF Converter windows service for the license key to take effect.
