Solid Framework Code Sample
This is a concise sample to help get started with Solid Framework SDK
Using the Solid Framework C++ Sample
These following samples can be downloaded and installed as-is with a Solid PDF Tools v9 unlock code to quickly review the functionality. Without an unlock code the application will convert but watermark all output.
If you do not have a Solid PDF Tools license please contact
for a license for the purpose of evaluating the SDK.
The source code and SDK for this sample is provided in the form of 2 zip files, the project file below and the Solid Framework C++ for Windows SDK zip file, available from the developer portal (self-service). This will not work with a Solid PDF Tools V9 Unlock Code. This sample project can be explored as a reference implementation, built and run.
