PDF Compressor Command Line is crash on Windows 2008 system

Dear Sir or Madam,

We recently purchased your product "PDF Compressor Command Line 1 Server License" for $399.

We downloaded the latest version v2.0 from your purchase site:


We successfully registered and brought PDF Compressor productive as a part of our server based solution.

But then, after some days, we experienced problems with certain PDFs.

One of them you find attached ("Zeugnisse.pdf").

PDF Compressor's behavior with this PDF is as follows:

1. System:
- Windows Server 2008, SP1
- MS SQL Server 2008 R2

2. Contents in folder C:\PDFCompressorTest BEFORE command line execution is:

23.07.2013 14:58 .
25.06.2013 14:46 ..
24.04.2011 23:35 10'294'272 pdfcompressor.exe
17.04.2011 21:44  1'224'704 cximagecrt.dll
01.07.2013 15:56  1'779'115 Zeugnisse.pdf
3 Datei(en), 13'298'091 Bytes
2 Verzeichnis(se), 140'865'122'304 Bytes frei

3. Command line called from a stored procedure by MS SQL Server:

C:\PDFCompressorTest>pdfcompressor.exe Zeugnisse.pdf result.pdf

4. pdfcompressor.exe crashes (screenshot):

>>> Before crashing, pdfcompressor created a result file of size 0 Bytes.

You may reproduce this problem with the attached "Zeugnisse.pdf".

You don't need to involve an MS SQL Server.

The crash happens as well when manually executing in a command shell window.

We have two questions :

1. Is there a fixed version available for pdfcompressor.exe?

2. If not so: Is there a workaround to avoid this program crash of pdfcompressor.exe?

With kind regards
I have tried following command line, it does compress your PDF file properly,

C:\>E:\pdfcompressor.exe -ci jpg -cidown -cidownres 80 -gi jpg -gidown -gidownres 80 -mi fax -midown -midownres 80 D:\downloads\Zeugnisse.pdf D:\downloads\_Zeugnisse.pdf
