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

The following C# example converts a PDF document called Loan.pdf to a PostScript document called Loan.ps. (See Converting PDF Documents to PostScript.)

    * 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
