How to convert normal PDF file to PDF/A file and keep searchable ability in output PDF/A file?


I have a few questions regarding your PDF to PDF/A converter program, version 2.0. I have a few thousand PDFs I need to convert and before I buy this program I need to know that it can handle that volume. With the trial version installed, I can only convert 3 documents at a time. How many documents can you batch convert and what would you say is the pages per hour? Also, I noticed when converting searchable PDFs, certain words that were originally searchable are no longer searchable once I convert to PDF/A. Has this issue been brought to your attention, if so, what is a way to ensure this doesn't happen going forward.

Please respond at your earliest convenience.

Thank you,

Thanks for your message, if you wish convert lots of PDF files to PDF/A files, we suggest you may download "VeryDOC PDF to PDF/A Converter Command Line product" from following web page to try,

Will doc2any support Microsoft Office 365 Cloud version?

Hi There,

We use doc2any for some conversions in our Scrivener product and are having repeated issues where at least two dozen users of Microsoft Office 365 have had import/export problems using the default Doc2Any via Microsoft Office converters.

My guess is that this is an issue with Office 365 being all or partially web-based, so it doesn't have the same libraries for Doc2Any to hook into--that or the libraries are just different and Doc2any can't use them effectively.

Many users use Win 8 and report that exporting from RTF to DOCX hangs on an "converting" screen, and converting to DOC opened as an empty file in Word. (Some of these users were also converting with English and Hebrew text, but not all, but I'm not sure that's relevant since I can do the same with Word 2013 in Win7 without getting those errors. Debugging the issue, I can see the problem resides with doc2any as the Scrivener process does not hang - only doc2any process hangs.

For import, the users simply got an empty document with the title of the file.

As an addendum to this, these users with the import problem are using 365 ProPlus, which they say is a desktop installation that runs locally. So maybe this is just an issue with changed libraries that Doc2Any isn't handling properly?

I'm not sure there's much I can do about this if it's all Doc2Any's end other than send you a report and ask if there's a new bug fix we can download, or if there is a way we can determine more specifically which version of Office is installed and not show the doc2any converter options if it's 365. I'm not even sure though if this is *all* flavors of 365 or just some, e.g. those without a local installation. I'm not entirely clear how 365 works.

Any guidance here would be much appreciated. We are using doc2any


Thanks for your message, Microsoft Office 365 is a Cloud Office, it doesn't support MS Office OLE Automation, so you need to install MS Office 2007 or 2010 or 2012 in order to convert office files to PDF files by Doc2Any Command Line application.

If you wish convert office files to PDF files on the cloud, we suggest you may use VeryPDF Cloud API Platform,


You can use VeryPDF Cloud API Platform to convert office files to PDF files and process PDF files easily, you needn't install anything to your local server, this may an alternative solution for you.

How to call doc2any.exe from PHP source code?

Dear Sir

I am evaluating your product and I require some help.
Our proposed portal is being developed in Php running on Tomcat.

The requirement:

A user loads a word / excel / ppt document. Let us say the user loads test.doc. The document is renamed to user1011.doc based on a logic and is uploaded in a directory called upload.

The first page of test.doc needs to be converted to a gif file user1011.gif. This should be saved in the upload folder.

This is what I have done so far:

Moved the following three files to the root directory of localhost: cimage.dll, doc2any.exe and pdftoolsdk.dll.

In the php program I placed the following codes relevant to doc2any.

$infile=$directory . $filname;
$outfile= "uploads/" . $docname . ".gif";
echo $infile; returns uploads/v.doc
echo "";
echo $outfile; returns uploads/v.gif
$timage=$dir .'\doc2any.exe -nooffice -pagerange 1 ' .$infile . $outfile;
$result = exec($timage) ;
if(! $result )
    die('Problem with doc2any :: ' . mysql_error());

When executed I get an error message:

Problem with doc2any ::

Please let me know where I am going wrong.

Can I also convert the first page of a pdf upload?

What sort of licensing needs to be purchased? We plan to host this portal on Godaddy server sometime in July.

Appreciate your comeback.

This problem is caused by permission restrictions in SYSTEM user account, you can use VeryPDFComRunCmd COM to call doc2any.exe from PHP code to try again.

VeryPDFComRunCmd is an EXE COM Component which can be used to launch any EXE or Office application from ASP, PHP, C#, .NET etc. program languages. VeryPDFComRunCmd COM is a freeware.



You can use following ASP code to call any EXE or MS Office without any permission problem,


set VeryPDFCom = Server.CreateObject("VeryPDFCom.RunCmd")
dim nRetVal, bRet
bRet = VeryPDFCom.RunCmd("D:\verydoc\doc2any.exe D:\test.doc D:\out.pdf", 5, 0)
strRet = VeryPDFCom.RunCmd2("D:\verydoc\doc2any.exe D:\test.doc D:\out.pdf", 5)
Response.Write strRet & vbCrlf


This is a PHP source code example to call doc2any.exe by VeryPDFComRunCmd COM interface,


$VeryPDFCom = new COM("VeryPDFCom.RunCmd") or Die ("Did not connect");
$strRet = VeryPDFCom->RunCmd2("D:\verydoc\doc2any.exe D:\test.doc D:\out.pdf", 5);


You can use VeryPDFComRunCmd COM to overcome limitations in SYSTEM user account easily, please give it a try.

You can also refer to more solutions to overcome limitations in SYSTEM user account from following web pages,


>>Can I also convert the first page of a pdf upload?

If you wish convert first page of PDF file to image file, you can use VeryPDF PDF to Image Converter Command Line software,


>>What sort of licensing needs to be purchased? We plan to host this portal on Godaddy server sometime in July.

You need to purchase DOC to Any Converter Command Line Server License,
