I'm getting similar errors on my XP machine. I'm also getting a message that is titled PDF Library and says Evaluation period expired, please contact pdfsupport@pdf-tools.com. The same line also shows up in the CMD prompt window. This happens every time I start PDFrasterfarian. I just uninstalled 2.1.6 and installed 2.2.1. I was getting the same PDF Library error with 2.1.6 and it would not process any .pdf files.

Here's what I get when I choose to preview the first page:

I get the same unhandled exception errors when I try to process a .pdf without previewing the first page.

Fantastic Application

I just tried this to convert some PDF's I have of software documentation and I have to say it works brilliantly (its the first content i've loaded onto my PRS500 and been happy with)

Just wanted to let you know that 2.2.1 installed and works perfectly first time for me.. I do have visual studio installed on this pc mind.. Maybe theres something that VS installs that allows this to run properly??

hmm, was working fine all of yesterday..

shut down laptop to go to bed.. restarted it and now its not working anymore.. everytime i hit the pdfrasterfarian link on the right click menu windows shows me the dialog box where you can select which application to use to open the file..

very strange! (nothing has changed other than the reboot..) im gonna go see if i can find out why this is happening.

/edit: im a fool.. i thought that the install command file moved the files to program files or such and ran from there.. turns out it doesnt, so the error started after a removed the folder form the desktop.. recreated it and its working 100% fine again

I'm having a little problem.

I have a .PDF file, I'm using version 2.1.4, and I try to read the file in vertical view (normal view). I've tried all modes, and I also did bolder the text (set it on 3), but the problem is the margin is not fine, mostly the top one, and the text is still a little too small.

Is there any way to get this better please ?

the top margin becomes large if the autocropped page is wider than the 3:4 aspect ratio (ie, it gets aligned to the bottom edge). That and the issue of small fonts is best resolved by doing manual cropping. This lets you zoom in on the text itself (removing visible things that autocropping doesn't touch) and adjust the margins to your preference. You can do this using Acrobat Pro or JAP or some other pdf tool (there are several shareware options). As I always say, if you find a good free tool that I can integrate into pdfrasterfarian, it would be appreciated by many.

Stupid question-
Is there a version/equivalent program of RasaerFarian for those of us who live in a window$-free world? I use Mac OS-X and various *nix environments. Period. I would like to be able to rescale, etc my pdf files for use with the prs-500. Much technical documentation exista only in pdf format.

Thanks,
Mark

Well, you can use PDFRead -- it works on Windows, Linux and OS X and supports multiple eBook devices. You might want to check this mobileread thread for more details.

That's what the lrs2lrf.log file contains
I have no clue why those Japanese Fonts are in there.
Also, I have installed East Asian Languages but, Language for non-Unicode programs is set to English (US default).

I attempted on several files, including this one (12 pages)
and eBooks. However same thing happens.

I got the same error. After some testing, I noticed this only happens if I choose "Full" post-processing. All the output PNG files are blank. "Simple" post-processing works fine. I am using 2.1.3. Any idea what the problem is?

I got the same error.....even in the simple model.....

The reason you get the Japanese is because lrs2lrf.exe is written in Japanese. Might have been written for the Librie. What you can try is if you have Book Designer, take the LRS file and run it though MSH_LRSParser.exe which is in C:\Program Files\Book Designer\Tools\Reader\

Does the PDF have a TOC in asian languages? if yes, that might be the problem.

Sent the PDF to me, and I'll see if I can do something about it.
