VB.net using DWG to PDF.pc3

I get an error message when I try to use 'plottofile' or 'plottodevice' function. Anybody found a way to use this plotting device?

Private Sub PlotLayout(ByVal Papersize As String, ByVal LayoutName As String)
Dim Configname As String = "PHI - " & Papersize
Dim Path As String
Dim Plots As Integer
Dim PlotConfig As AutoCAD.AcadPlotConfiguration

PlotConfig = GetPlotConfig(Configname & " PDF")
If mform.chkPDFFiles.Checked = True Then
Path = Fullpath & "\" & LayoutName
AcadDwg.Plot.PlotToFile(Path, PlotConfig)

GetPlotConfig cycles thru configuration types in file until it finds the correct one to use.

I tried 'PlotToDevice' function and adding ".pdf" to path name and nothing seems to work.
