FDF Toolkit with Windows 2003 and IIS 6

Hi,

How do I install the FDF Toolkit on IIS6?
I tryed it the same way that you do it with IIS 5, but I always get the error that the Server object cannot be created/found when I try

Set FdfAcX = Server.CreateObject("FdfApp.FdfApp")

Set outputFDF = FdfAcX.FDFCreate      

Thanks for your help

some more info:

- Windows 2003 with all the latest patches
- IIS 6
- FDF Toolkit 6
- Acrobat SDK 5
- Acrobat 5 Professional.

Now I'm aware, that I rather should use the SDK 6 and Acrobat 6, but Adobe charges for both pieces a very large amount of money, which I'm not willing to pay.

But the FDF toolkit should run as a standalone. Besides, I already tryed the combination Acrobat 4 + SDK 4 + FDF Toolkit 4 and it didn't work as well on 2003

The FDF Toolkit is not connected to Arobat or the Acrobat SDK in any way, so it should run on it's own.
You said that regsvr32 does not work. Does it give an error message?

Check list for Installation of IIS in Documentations

1. Install FdfAcX.dll in a directory that has “execute” permissions.
2.With Microsoft’s Internet Information Server version 3 using ASP, a good location (using Windows NT for the example) is \WINNT\system32\inetsrv\ASP\Cmpnts. With IIS version 4 or later, use \WINNT\system32.
3. If you are running on an NTFS file system, the DLLs themselves need the proper execute
permissions. FdfAcX.dll uses FdfTk.dll. Place both in the same directory, or in the
C:\WINNT\System32 directory.
4. FdfAcX.dll needs to be registered with Windows NT. Use the Windows NT “regsvr32”
Program. To register FdfAcX.dll, copy the file to \WINNT\System32\Inetsrv\ASP\Cmpnts directory or a location you have chosen and at the Windows NT Command Prompt window type:
C:\WINNT\> cd \WINNT\System32\Inetsrv\ASP\Cmpnts
C:\WINNT\System32\Inetsrv\ASP\Cmpnts\> regsvr32 FdfAcX.dll

Thanks for all your fast replies.

The hint which solved my problem was the one by antonieraj:
" FdfAcX.dll uses FdfTk.dll. Place both in the same directory, or in the C:\WINNT\System32 directory."
