It ain't cheap.  See attached.
Hi,
 
I'm attached the cost information at below,
 
PDFcamp Printer (PDF Writer) is USD29.9 per computer,
PDFcamp Printer Pro (PDF Writer) is USD38 per computer,
DocConverter COM Server License is USD299 per server,
DocConverter COM Developer License is USD2000 per developer,
Please download the PDFcamp Printer + DocConverter COM from our website to try, we hoping you will work fine with these products,

Please look at following URLs to study more information about DocConverter COM product,
http://www.verypdf.com/pdfcamp/doc2pdf_readme.html

After you installed the PDFcamp Printer + DocConverter COM, you can run following command line to convert your documents to PDF files, it is easily,
 
  For example:
  html2pdf.exe "http://www.yahoo.com" "c:\yahoo.pdf"

  html2pdf.exe "C:\example.doc" "C:\example.pdf"
  html2pdf.exe "C:\example.xls" "C:\example.pdf"
 
You can also call html2pdf.exe software from your application directly, then you can convert your documents to PDF files on the fly.
 
If you wish run DocConverter COM from ASP or PHP code, please refer to the "doc2pdf_asp" directory, this example will let you know how to call html2pdf.exe from ASP language,
 
You can also run the "doc2pdf_html\test.htm" file to test the DocConverter COM from the HTML file.
 
 
We are provide "Gold Support" option for our customers, Gold Support is US$1200 per year, you will save 20% if you purchase "Gold Support" along with our product, with "Gold Support", VeryPDF will use reasonable best efforts to correct failure and provide this fix to client in a timely manner, "Gold Support" does include analysis of problematic files or other troubleshooting activities.

For example, if you encounter a PDF file that our product can't process it, we will fix this problem for you in a timely manner if you purchased "Gold Support". under the Free Support, we can only provide a fix to you until next version of this product released.
 
However, Gold Support is OPTIONAL and not required.
 
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have question on this.

The desktop version of Print to PDF (http://www.software602.com/products/print2pdf) runs very well from the command line, and it's only $8.99 on Amazon!!

The desktop version of Print2PDF can't run on a server, so the nod goes to wmeerza.
