Cannot save to PDF in Azure

Postby shaunlandau » Mon Jul 21, 2014 6:03 pm

Hello folks,
I am evaluating Spire.Doc for the purpose of generating PDF files from Word templates in a Windows Azure environment. I am able to open the doc, manipulate content and save as Word2013 format but cannot save as PDF. The error out is pasted below.

Hello,

Thanks for evaluting our product.
You will run into this error if you use Windows Azure WebSite because GDI is not well supported on Azure Shared WebSite. The only solution for this problem is to move to Azure Cloud Services or Virtual Machine.
Sincerely,

Hi, would any Azure non-shared PaaS web hosting package do the trick, such as the "B1 Basic" in order not to get the error ?

We have procured license for Spire Doc Professional Edition to convert Word document to PDF. In developer machine it is perfectly working fine, whereas when we deployed the solution in Azure API App it is giving us Error as “Could not find the file path”. We have verified the path configured to save the generated PDF Document.

Please help us on this issue.

Hi sundarpaul,

I have received your word document. I got the following error on my Azure environment. It is a bug. Sorry for the inconvenience caused. I have forwarded it to our dev team. We will inform you once there is any good news.

Testing code:
Code: Select all
 protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            WordToPdfConverter(Server.MapPath("~/Data/Test.docx"), Server.MapPath("~/Data/Test.pdf"));
        }
        public static void WordToPdfConverter(string wordDocumentpath, string pdfPath)
        {         
            Spire.Doc.Document doc = new Spire.Doc.Document();
            doc.LoadFromFile(wordDocumentpath);
            doc.SaveToFile(pdfPath, FileFormat.PDF);           
        }



Best wishes,
Amy

Hi,

Thanks for patient waiting. Sorry for the delayed update.
The conversion of Word to PDF is workable in Azure now. Please use the following solution.
Code: Select all
Document doc = new Document();
  doc.LoadFromFile(filename);
  ToPdfParameterList tpl = new ToPdfParameterList
        {
            UsePSCoversion = true                         
        }; 
   doc.SaveToFile(resultname, tpl);


If you have any issues, please feel free to contact us.

Sincerely,
Amy
