  1. Hi, could you please compile the DCU files for Delphi 2009? Thank you.

  2. Wonderful news! Any chance for support for Delphi 2007 and 2009?

  3. Hi Peter,

    We have the DCU files for Delphi 2009, however, they are still experimental since there were substantial changes between Delphi 2008 and 2009.

    We’re aiming to include these with the next release.

  4. Hi Jeff,

    The DCU files for Delphi 2009 are still experimental and so were not included with the latest release. The DCU files for Delphi 2006 should work with Delphi 2007.

  5. Is anyone else having problems with the trial key included in the beta package? Whenever I try to unlock the library using the DLL interface it returns failure.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Yes I saw the information about the function changes and how to instantiate the library. And bookmarks in the reference pdf is greatly needed.

  6. Thanks for your comment — first of all, your notes re: bookmarks is well taken on board. In addition, we’re also aware that we need to provide much better help. We’re working on this behind the scenes.

    In the beta package, you need to use the new import headers. I created a simple dialog-based MFC project, then:

    1. Added the import headers to the project,
    2. The DLL files to the release folder,
    3. A single button and OnClick() function.

    void CQuickPDFDLLTestDlg::OnBnClickedButton1()
    QuickPDFDLL0712 QPL(“QuickPDFDLL0712.dll”);
    QPL.DrawTextW(100, 500, “Hello world”);

    The result of this was a single PDF created in the temp folder. Please let us know if you have any problems with this or open a support case here –

  7. Still no go. First let me say I am using the DLL interface through a Powerbuilder application. I defined the functions as:

    function int QuickPDFCreateLibrary() library “QuickPDFDLL0712.dll”
    function int QuickPDFReleaseLibrary(int iInstanceID) library “QuickPDFDLL0712.dll”
    function int QuickPDFUnlocked(int iInstanceID) library “QuickPDFDLL0712.dll”
    function int QuickPDFUnlockKey(int iInstanceID, String sRegKey) library “QuickPDFDLL0712.dll”

    Now if I code a function like this it always returns FALSE.
    integer li_instance_id
    string ls_key

    li_instance_id = QuickPDFCreateLibrary()
    ls_key = “j74gf38u9i88w97zu88w7gb7y”

    if li_instance_id > 0 then
    if QuickPDFUnlocked (li_instance_id) = 0 Then
    /* Unlock DLL support */
    if QuickPDFUnlockKey (li_instance_id, ls_key) = 0 then
    fs_err_msg = “Error: Could not unlock iSED PDF DLL.”
    QuickPDFReleaseLibrary (li_instance_id)
    Return (FALSE)
    end if
    end if

    QuickPDFReleaseLibrary (li_instance_id)

    Return (TRUE)

    Based on all available help, the above function should work. I even changed the key argument to pass by reference and it failed. Also change the case to uppercase for the key string, still failed. Now I have used passed iSed DLLs with no problems. But this one?

    Any help would be welcome
