I have the full version of Adobe Acrobat 7.0 installed, and I've done a fair amount of work with the Adobe PDF SDK, but I can't figure out something that seems really simple. Is there an official Adobe way of converting files to PDFs? I have about 10 different 'print to pdf' print drivers installed on my computer, but I really want an official, Adobe, way of doing it. Any help would be REALLY appreciated, this has been killing me for a while.... Thanks!

Are you talking about making a PDF from scratch? I'm fairly certain the file format is public. I'd google it, but you can do that.

I guess I should elaborate on what I'm doing. Thanks for the help so far.

I'm writing a program that monitors a directory. Files in any format (.doc, .ppt, .jpeg etc.) can be copied into the directory at any time. When my program detects a new file, it converts it into a pdf and moves it to an output directory.

I have a working version that silently invokes an open office macro, but its really shaky, and crashes all the time. So I finally got Acrobat 7.0 Pro and am trying to do the conversion using the official Adobe SDK.

So I'm looking for some magical command in the Adobe SDK to do something along the lines of

Adobe.ConvertFileToPDF( "filename.x", "output.pdf");
