Bug reports / Re: Error message with PDFE trial version

Check with the Windows Event Viewer if there is any application error related to PDFExplorer.exe. To easily find all the events specific to the PDFExplorer.exe process you may create a custom view, with this XML filter:
Code: [Select]
<QueryList>
  <Query Id="0" Path="Application">
    <Select Path="Application">*[EventData[(Data='pdfexplorer.exe')]]</Select>
  </Query>
</QueryList>

You may also try with the process monitor tool, to log all the registry and file system activity generated by the PDFExplorer.exe, so I can check what may be causing this issue.
Just set a filter to monitor only the activity generated by the process named PDFExplorer.exe, enable the Show Registry and Show File System activity toolbar buttons, (as depicted in the attached screenshot) and then run the PDFE until it fails. Take a screenshot of the tool showing the last logged lines or, even better, save the log to a file, zip it, and attach it here to a forum reply.

Bug reports / Re: Error message with PDFE trial version

Hi
meanwhile I de-installed PDFE and re-installed it again.
Installation goes well but when I select a folder for PDF import PDFE closes immediately and cannot be restarted again (unless another de-installation / re-installation process will be initiated).
Error message below does not show up again.
Any thoughts, please?

The error fires immediately after starting or when you interact with any of the program functionality?
Please post the entire error report text.

how long did it take for you using the first script? just because you said the second script would be slower it made me think something was wrong on my version if option 2 was (slow) but still much faster to get a result. was hoping that if there was indeed something wrong with my version, it might get fixed then it would be a much faster process.

The success/unsuccess and speed of the extract images tool is related to the PDF thumbnail handler installed in the system. I've tested the most common PDF readers thumbnail handlers and the fastest with your PDF file is the provided by the Sumatra PDF reader. The one with the pdf-xchange viewer is also good.
Both cut, roughly, in half the time taken by the ImageMagick based script.

To test with the Sumatra PDF reader, if your Windows is 64-bit, install the 64-bit version and also the 32-bit version (to a different folder e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\SumatraPDF) and then, from an elevated command prompt, run the command regsvr32 "C:\Program Files (x86)\SumatraPDF\PdfPreview.dll".

If the first didn't finished, how can you know that? Something is failing in the first script call to the extract images tool, and the script is just waiting for the page rasterization image file to be created, something that is not happening. That's why I asked if you are able to manually use the extract image tool to rasterize the page to an external .png image file.

Anyway, if the second script is working, you have your problem covered. Or isn't producing what you need?

sorry mate, yeah when I manually use the extract image tool it takes forever and doesn't output. it did for one file, which was just a simple A4 with an image on it, but anything more complicated and it doesn't seem to be doing much.

It never finished.. I need a DPI of about 300 for production printing.. is that just too high for this tool?
Just tested and both scripts worked just fine with 300 DPI. You just need to edit the first line of the script to var RenderDPIs = 300;

As I said, the new one you provided was much faster!
