Image to PDF converter


We have an application written in C++ that needs to convert .BMP files to .PDF files.

We need to find a solution that follows these requirements:

- Must be free
- Must be independent (does not require Acrobat or any other extensions to run on the client PC)
- Must NOT use .NET at all.

We looked on the Web but we found nothing that follows our requirements.
And we do not have time to search for hours.

Thank you very much

Well, after searching a while, it seems that modern Acrobat Readers have a more strict interpretation of the PDF spec :-(
we sue this:
downlaod the app and converter.
The following might also be a suitable solution: ("PDF Writer -

Thank you for the fast answers, but we need to NOT install any other component like GhostScript or any other PostScript To PDF converter. The tool must do everything by itself.
Hm, in that case, might help. It still requires a BMP->TIFF conversion, but that can be done using

The TiffToPDF tool looks like I could use it, but the PDF that was created does not want to open.
I'm using Acrobat 9 and when it opens it gives me this error:

There was an error processing a page. There was a problem reading this document (109).

I can't attach the tif file but I attached the outputted PDF file.

Any idea?
