Using Aspose PDF as a PDF printer from VB6

We use aspose PDF in our other .net applications successfully. I’ve read some docs in your help that aspose pdf can be used in another (VB6) application using COM interop by creating a TLB.

  • Could this give us functionality to produce new PDF within our legacy application?

However the main question is - can aspose pdf be installed as a PDF printer so that existing PRINTER functionality could be used to product PDFs please?

@PreetSanghaSOE,
You can use Aspose.Pdf for .NET API in any other programming language (including VB6) using the COM Interop. Please refer to the printing features of Aspose.Pdf for .NET API: Working with PDF printing (Facades). You can use the following command to register the Aspose.Pdf for .NET DLL:

regasm “Aspose.Pdf.dll” /tlb /codebase

Please also refer to the following help topic: Choose the Platform and Interoperability Technology and let us know in case of any further assistance or questions.

Cheers @imran.rafique , Please could you answer my second part

@PreetSanghaSOE,
Aspose.Pdf API cannot be installed as a PDF printer, it can give commands to the existing printers. You can create a new PDF document, and then print through the existing printers. Aspose.Pdf API can also read, write and manipulate existing PDF documents without using Adobe Acrobat. Please let us know in case of any confusion or questions.
