Convert to PDFs

Hi Support, We have a requirement to build a window services program which monitors a directory for incoming files (*.doc, *.xls, *.ppt, *.docx, *.xlsx, *.pptx, *.rt, *. *.tif, *.txt)

The program will then convert these files to PDFs.

I have been searching on the NET for many .NET API to use and came across Apose.Words. Could you please let me know if Apose.Words can do my requirements above without the need to have MS Office installed on the deployment machine
