The type or namespace name 'PdfDecoder' could not be found

Dear Experts,
am trying to convert pdftoimage using the below link
http://threebit.net/mail-archive/itext-questions/msg00436.html

but i get this error how to get this code to work ?
"The type or namespace name 'PdfDecoder' could not be found"
I need a solution for this and am left with null ideas to proceed .
As i dont have freedom to
purchase third party and i did the best to use ghost script projects which got so many issues on server?

1) You will have to refer that DLL
(using AddReference from Visual Studio)
2) Add using PdfDecoder;

then your code should work

It seems that you didn't install the application -  PDFDecoder. Once you install, corresponding DLL would be available in GAC and you can refer to that assembly.

Since in your current code, you are using this assembly, better to install and proceed. So try get the setup of PDFDecoder, install and verify

Well some of the classes (BufferedImage, GraphicsConfiguration) seem to be Java classes. Are you sure that's C# code?

CodeCruiser,

But when i google asp.net pdf to image using itext sharp
i got one of the post of this link .. and its pretty much looks like c# so i proceeded it .
Whether conversion of pdf to image is so so difficult to do in asp.net ?
