"A reference to 'C:\Documents and Settings\tom.gagne\My Documents
\Downloads\pdf2text_sdk\pdf2text_sdk\lib\pdf2text.dll' could not be
added. Please make sure that the file is accessible, and that it is a
valid assembly or COM component."
Having loaded many component libraries I'm a little confused with this
message. Have any of you heard of this before?
A: PDF2Text.dll is a plain "C" DLL so it can’t be added as a reference
(You can access it via PInvoke however as shown in samples that come
with the SDK).
In case you are looking for a true .NET assembly which you can add to
your project you may want to use PDFNet SDK (http://www.pdftron.com/
pdfnet/downloads.html). As a starting point you may want to take a
look at TextExtract sample project: http://www.pdftron.com/pdfnet/samplecode.html#TextExtract
