ODT files are OpenDocument Text files created with word processing programs such as free OpenOffice Writer. Like DOCX files, ODT files can contain content like text, images, objects and styles, but they may not be readable by some people who don't have the appropriate application installed. If you plan to share an ODT file, it's best to convert it to pdf so everyone can access it. In this article, we will explain how to convert ODT to PDF in C# and VB.NET using Spire.Doc for .NET.

To begin with, you need to add the DLL files included in the Spire.Doc for .NET package as references in your .NET project. The DLL files can be either downloaded from this link or installed via NuGet.
