I am using the following code to create pdf file from a postscript file in vb.net. It works the first time but fails the second time
the problem seems to be that the Distiller never closes.

How can I make sure that the Distiller application closes? =nothing does not seem to work



  Dim tmpFile = Path.GetTempFileName()
                Dim objDis As New ACRODISTXLib.PdfDistiller
                  objDis.FileToPDF(tmpFile, "c:\abx.pdf", "")
                    objDis = Nothing

I figured it out it was a garbage collection issue....

System.GC.Collect worked.
