Running DynamicPDF COM on IIS 7

DynamicPDF CoreSuite for COM/ActiveX (v6) Forum

 Apr 24 2014 1:47 PM

I am trying to port an application from Windows 2003 Server to Windows 2012 Server with a development environment of Windows 7.

In a nutshell, I have a legacy VB6 ActiveX DLL that runs DynamicPDF for COM/ActiveX v6.0.0.17276 to handle our PDF creation needs.

Currently, this DLL is being called from Classic ASP on Windows 2003 Server, as well as ASP.NET 1.1 on the same server.

I now need to port this to Windows 2012 Server on IIS 8.0.

Is this possible? The Windows 2012 Server will host multiple web applications running Classic ASP to ASP.NET 4.5.

In conclusion, I am unable to run createobject on DynamicPDF in the development environment (Windows 7, IIS 7). I have made sure that it is registered, etc.

Is this all doable? If not, any options without having to migrate our entire printing engine to .NET (we use that version to, but not in the application we are porting).

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Best regards,

Yes, it is possible to install DynamicPDF Generator v6 for COM/AcitveX on Win 2012/IIS8 and Win7/IIS7 and use it in multiple web applications hosted on the server. The product requires .NET/ASP.NET 2.0 and the application pool should be set to run under local system account and "Enable 32-Bit Applications" flag of the app pool should be set appropriately depending on how the DynamicPDF dll is registered (32-bit or 64-bit).
