Simple Code doesn't work

I wrote some simple code right out of the docs:

Pdf pdf = new Pdf();
pdf.BindXML(@“c:\invoice.xml”, null);

Doesn’t work. I get this crash–>

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I also tried using the XmlDocument method where you load the .xml file via an XMLTextReader, Load an XmlDocument pass that into BindXML(). Same thing…

I’ve gone through 5 or 6 <$500 PDF writers in the last few days. This is pretty darn frustrating.


Please send a sample of invoice.xml which can reproduce the problem to

Thanks for your cooperation.
