Difference between Free/Pay Dwf

292 Views, 8 Replies
05-04-2004 10:20 AM
I purchased the DWF Composer. I have the current release of the free DWF Viewer on my machine when I installed Composer it asked me to uninstall the dwf viewer. This is a problem if the object code is different between the free one and the pay one because we have written a web rapper that requires the object code to be the same as the free one.

Composer will work with your existing web site written for the DWF Viewer. There are some API migration paths if you are using a compiled language such as VB or C# when re-compiling with Composer.

Hi John, Is there an API help file that comes with Composer? Is there a document available on the AutoDesk web site for reviewing changes to the API?

Bob - DWF Composer's online HELP has a section titled "Programmer's Guide: Introduction to the DWF Composer API". This section describes some of the differences between the "DWF Viewer" API and the "DWF Composer" API. It also provides a link to download the API document: http://www.autodesk.com/developdwfcomposer DWF Composer's online help is available within the DWF Composer application itself, or from the web: http://www.autodesk.com/dwfcomposer ----------------------------- Susan Scott Autodesk Viewers QA "Bob" wrote in message news:4098d93e$1_2@newsprd01... > Hi John, > > Is there an API help file that comes with Composer?

Susan, The link you provided to API help is for DWF Viewer. It hasn't been updated for Composer. Is there any API help for using the mark-up tools in Composer?

Bob - the API's are the same for the 2 products, except for the differences called out in the DWF Composer HELP. My recommendation to you is: 1. read the DWF Composer introduction to the APIs 2. download the DWF Viewer API document and use it for your DWF Composer work. ------------------------- Susan Scott Autodesk Viewers QA "Bob" wrote in message news:409a5a81$1_2@newsprd01... > Susan, > > The link you provided to API help is for DWF Viewer.

Susan, The advantage that Composer has is markup. The DWF Viewer help does not mention markup API because there is no markup in DWF Viewer. Is there API help for markup commands with Composer?

Bob - No, there are no APIs for markup in this release. All the APIs in DWF Composer are the same ones that are also in the DWF Viewer. We are looking to add some additional APIs to DWF Composer in the next release. ------------------------- Susan Scott Autodesk Viewers QA "Bob" wrote in message news:409a64b6$1_1@newsprd01... > Susan, > > The advantage that Composer has is markup.
