Hi Foy,

Could you confirm what document handle is being associated with the .pdf file extensions on your desktop? The document handle used by your workstation can be found by

1) selecting "Start > Run" on windows,
2) entering "regedit" to open the "Registry Editor", and
3) navigating on the left panel to "Computer > HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT > .pdf"
The information you want is under the "Data" column on the right panel.

The registry entry used to identify the document handle used on your workstation to convert the PDF to text is called the "Convert" registry entry. For example, you would enter the registry entry below and replace Key 6 with the document handle found above. This will allow the system to know that document handle is associated with a PDF file extension and should convert the data to text.

Key 1: System
Key 2: Setting
Key 3: Multimedia
Key 4: Convert
Key 5: [Enter Document Handle]
Key 6: txt
Key 7: Server Command
Value: /usr/bin/pdftotext -eol dos "%1" "%2"

Forther information on the above instructions can be found in the KE EMu Help files under the article "EMu administration > The EMu Registry > Registry settings > Multimedia > Documents > Generating and managing document formats > Convert Registry entry > How to identify a document handle".

Hope this helps.
