I thought that plug-in technology would be the slam-dunk answer to my application needs, but was disappointed when I realized that the x64 third party library that I want to use with my plug-in will not work with Win32. So how can I get it done?
The following is an incomplete list of what I want my application to do:
I do not believe that a plug-in alone would give me what I need, especially considering that the third party library is compiled as x64. IAC looks interesting, but, again, doesn't allow all that I need.
Would some combination of plug-in + IAC + PDF Library be an answer? Or am I overlooking something that would make this task a lot easier?
Short answer – PDFLibrary.
Longer answer: Acrobat plugins are for when Acrobat is the user’s primary experience and you are simply adding some UI/UX to that. IAC is for when you are working in a language other than C/C++ and want some very basic PDF functionality. For everything else, there’s the PDFLibrary.
