PDFCreator COM object will not convert an html file, yet it will work for .XLSX

When I use the sample com applications (.net and .vb) I am able to convert an Excel file to PDF, yet html will not work. It simply hangs up.  If I print using the PDFCreator driver rather than the com object the HTML will convert to PDF just fine.

What am I doing wrong?

ANSWER: you cannot use the cPrintFile() method to print an HTML file. Instead use the cPrintURL() method.


You cannot use the cPrintFile(filename) to print an HTML file. But instead use the cPrintURL(filename).  Unfortunately none of this is documented.
