Hi Expert,

I work on an existing window service to transfer PDFs to TIFs.
But if one pdf is empty. It will crash the window service. The program could not work on next pdf. And I could not delete it.

The WS could not work on next pdf until I deleted the problem pdf and restarted the WS.
I want to make WS fault tolerant. Please help! Appreciated!!


        private void Convert(string strInput)
        {
            Boolean blnSuccess = true;
            string strOutput = "";

            if (!File.Exists(strInput))
            {
                Log(enumLogLevel.Warning, "File not found: " + strInput);
                return;
            }

            try
            {
                strOutput = GenerateOutputFilename(strInput);

                switch (strConvertFromType)
                {
                    case "pdf":
                        ConvertPDFToImage(strInput, strOutput);
                        break;
                    default:
                        if (strConvertToType == "pdf")
                        {
                            CreatePDF(strInput, strOutput);
                        }
                        else
                        {
                            if (blnConvert1BPP == true)
                                ConvertImage1BPP(strInput, strOutput);
                            else
                                ConvertImage(strInput, strOutput);
                        }
                        break;
                }
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                blnSuccess = false;
                Log(enumLogLevel.Warning, "Error converting image: " + strInput + " - " + ex.Message);
            }

            if (blnSuccess && blnDeleteSourceFile)
            {
                try
                {
                    File.Delete(strInput);
                }
                catch (Exception ex)
                {
                    Log(enumLogLevel.Warning, "Error removing file: " + strInput + " - " + ex.Message);
                }
            }

            return;
        }

        static void Main()
        {
            ServiceBase[] ServicesToRun;
            ServicesToRun = new ServiceBase[]
                  {

Sorry about they delay responding.
So, just to make sure I unerstand correctly:
you have an empty (zero size?) file called say ... c:\test.pdf
you SEE this file in windows explorer before launching your software
but your software returns file not found, for File.Exists("c:\\test.pdf");
Is that correct?

(just tested this myself, created a zero length test.pdf, and File.Exists()  returned a TRUE value, indicating it DOES see the file. I did hard-code in the filename in my test.)

I've looked through your full code, though I do not have enough time to do any serious analysis of it, i DID notice that you are generating filenames, it's possible your error lies somwhere in here: an illegal filename character, or incorrectly formated filename/path.  Does that final log (from the file.exists section) show exatly the right filename?

FileName is correct. It threw an exception when it's an empty file.
Modified to log the problem but continue process.
