3. Usage

a. Manual:
1) press <Win+R>, type "cmd" and press <Enter> to open the DOS command window.
2) change current path to PDF to DOC's program folder by using "cd" command (may need to change current drive first). Right-click PDF to DOC's shortcut icon and click "Properties" menu item, you will find the path in [Start in] field.
3) Now you can simply type "ptd -i:..." to use PTD' CLI.

b. Use PTD's CLI in Your Own Application/Script/BAT on Your Licensed PCs:
First, need to install PTD on your licensed PCs, and then simply use the Shell function (or other similar functions) to do it.
This is VB.NET sample code (in VB.NET, two " indicate one actual "), FYI:
Shell("""C:\Program Files\PDF Helper\PDF to DOC\PTD"" ""-i:H:\Books\C 11 D.pdf"" -o:H:\", AppWinStyle.NormalFocus)
Shell("""C:\Program Files\PDF Helper\PDF to DOC\PTD"" -i:H:\Books\C11D.pdf -o:H:\", AppWinStyle.NormalFocus)

c. Deploy PTD's CLI with Your Application/Script/BAT Outside the Scope of Your Licensed PCs:
In this case, do NOT need to install PTD on the PCs that you want to deploy to. And you should purchase PDF to DOC Redistributable CLI, click here to know more details.
Once bought, just deploy the received files under your application or any other place as you need, and then you will have the ability to use it like this (VB.NET code):
Shell("D:\MyApp\PTD\PTD -i:H:\Books\C11D.pdf -o:H:\", AppWinStyle.NormalFocus)

4. Note

a. Very easy to use, even only need to specify a PDF to convert.
b. Please use space to separate each arguments, if the full path of PTD.exe or any argument's value has the spaces, you must use "" to delimit it (include argument name). E.g. "-i:F:\test folder\test 1.pdf"
c. Please use : to separate argument name and value, and there is no space on the left and right of the colon. E.g. -o:D:\test
d. If you passed twice or more for a same argument, PTD only uses the last passed value. E.g. PTD -i:F:\test.pdf -i:F:\test1.pdf, PTD will convert F:\test1.pdf.
e. CLI Supports multi-language also, even in the log file.
f. Note that the permission problem on Vista+ OS, in order to avoid UAC prompt, we recommend you use the general paths to store input PDFs, output files and logs, do not use the system drive as best.
g. How to convert more than one PDFs or convert in a folder? Just use the "for" or other loops in your programming language.
