Problem with new Autoit and this PDF UDF

Recommended Posts

First of all IDK if it's OK to post this topic here and if not I'm asking to move it to the right place.

Anyway I ask for help in the PDF UDF main thread but nobody has answer me yet and I really need help on this.

See the problem started when I upgraded Autoit to its new version you can see the thread in the following link

Have you downloaded and copied to your installation \Include folder the 6 files from this thread:

As it states "These bugs had effects far beyond the actual libraries involved" and one of them might well be the source of your problem.

      Hello Experts,
      I have Zero experience with Autoit + Adobe Acrobat, and I really in need to get this working as PoC.
      I am trying to automate some manual actions below are the steps I would like to do.
      INPUT to script : 
      1. PDF file to open
      2. String that I would like to add as \\Server\Directory name
      Steps : 
      1. Open the file in Adobe Acrobat Pro
      2. Browse to View > Tools > Send For Review > Open (see image 1)
      3. On the launched tool bar click on "Send for Shared Connecting" (see image 2)
      4. Next select option "Automatically Collect comments on my..." in dropdown and click 'Next' (see image 3)
      5. Select radiobutton "Network folder" and paste the input "\\Server\Directory" in text field and click 'Next' (see image 4)
      Experts, I would really appreciate a quick script which I can run and get rolling.
      Please note, I would not likwe to rely on MouseClick and/or cordinates match approach.

      Hi guys!
      A pretty simple UDF to convert HTML to PDF using wkHTMLtoPDF.
      It uses the C API of the tool (DLL), so no external process, no ActiveX or COM sh*t.
      See the example, and the documentation of wkHTMLtoPDF.
