Getting started

Development environment

PDFRasterizer.NET 3.0 has been compiled and tested with Microsoft Visual Studio.NET 2003, 2005 and 2008 for Microsoft .NET Frameworks 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5. PDFRasterizer.NET is a 100% managed .NET component and consists of just a single assembly: TallComponents.PDF.Rasterizer.dll.


PDFRasterizer.NET 3.0 is compiled for versions 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0 of the Microsoft .NET framework. All three builds are included in the distribution.

Development environment

To develop applications using PDFRasterizer.NET 3.0 any development environment for Microsoft .NET 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5 framework will do.


The PDFRasterizer.NET 3.0 installation includes the XML documentation file TallComponents.PDF.Rasterizer.xml which documents all public types and members of PDFRasterizer.NET 3.0. If this XML file is in the same folder as the assembly, Visual Studio provides IntelliSense documentation as you type in your code.


PDFRasterizer.NET 3.0 is fully compatible with the XCopy deployment principle of .NET.

Code Samples

All samples included with PDFRasterizer.NET are available as Visual Studio 2003, 2005 and 2008 projects. The component will work with any development environment that targets the .NET 1.1 framework or later.
