Quick Start (MTOM): Converting a Microsoft Word document to a PDF document using the web service API

The following C# .NET example converts a Word file named Loan.doc to a PDF document named Loan.pdf. (See Converting Word Documents to PDF Documents.)

    * Ensure that you create a .NET project that uses  
    * MS Visual Studio 2008 and version 3.5 of the .NET 
    * framework. This is required to invoke a  
    * LiveCycle service using MTOM. 
    * For information, see "Invoking LiveCycle using MTOM" in Programming with LiveCycle
