Visual Studio 2010 and Printform

So I use Printform sometimes to print, I've now run into having to save it as a file, easy enough, it spits out MyStuff.eps.  my problem is I can't open it and is there a way to convert it to a pdf?  I've tried to import inmto word, tried with photoshop....etc?  Any ideas?

Not from your code. Print in PrintForm says it all. It is designed to be printed, so it used one of the most commonly used formats for printers.

There are a few tools that can convert from eps to pdf however.

Here is a discussion of a few: http://www.ehow.com/way_5862685_eps-pdf-conversion.html

There are also a few shareware utilities that do that. Maybe one of those could be controlled through your code: http://www.rocketdownload.com/query.php?q=eps+to+pdf

That's what I thought.  I still don't understand why I can't get the eps files it creates to open.  I found a third party tool that does what I need.  If it would export to file in either pdf of doc, it would save me mountains of time.  Thanks

eps files are not made to be opened by an application, they are made to be sent to the printer.
