Convert .doc to pdf

I'm looking to convert a ".doc" to pdf, but am receiving "Cannot infer input format from the file extension '.doc'. The file path should have an extension of the one of the supported file formats." I'm wondering if ".doc" is supported?

The code I am using:

        Document doc = Document.Load(inputFilePath);
        using (var ms =new MemoryStream())
        {
            doc.Save(ms, Docentric.Documents.ObjectModel.SaveOptions.Pdf);
            return ConvertHelper.ConvertStreamToByteArray(ms);
        }

Hi Dan,

No, the old MS Word binary format is not supported. You will need an external means to format .doc document to .docx first.

Regards,

Jure

Hi, I wanted to add an additional item on to this one. We are having some issues with .doc's that have been converted to .docx, but are receiving an error when the docx is attempted to be saved as pdf.

I have attached the file that was a .doc that has been converted to a .docx via MS Word.

I am receiving an Object Reference Error with the following stack trace: at #=zKWmW1eAtwomU$ZAYmAup7whiPXQqACRbWoziKMdKHmh0kGMwf7I84s=.#=zW0gTEimRY5MnygxNVA==(TextInput #=z9eadssS9bT$N) at #=zKWmW1eAtwomU$ZAYmAup7whiPXQqACRbWoziKMdKHmh0kGMwf7I84s=.#=z5OY6xftkE2HxgPXOQ==() at #=zKWmW1eAtwomU$ZAYmAup7whiPXQqACRbWoziKMdKHmh0kGMwf7I84s=.#=zHSBMY8=() at #=zeLDs8dPK44qezxu5cQ5MtbIuCTQtsazDr61tMVUqTHt67pTUsA==.#=zKy0ZZIQ=() at #=zJBoz190WZVAaIXOf4tfApESqUHG3oXhiyxmmCXVxUyXi7O70948ezis=.#=z$1tFTanMYmpT(Story #=zvPkVaKfGJ$8Z, #=zmPvyQNgZbt344ZVu8rHV7IHSJl4x$QOqLAQcqsBi33vM #=zbgGvaLA=, Dictionary2 #=zGI545Ix41u4xZGG7wzNTTXs=, #=zAD7HujfBkSP$oH7pqBW5Qbs9krQq5eFIVyL$cru6CmGZdIOlVA== #=zKlqMt5kVoQth) at #=zJBoz190WZVAaIXOf4tfApESqUHG3oXhiyxmmCXVxUyXi7O70948ezis=.#=zNbJ9AJU=() at Docentric.Documents.ObjectModel.Document.#=z9Fd1L$NCj0TF(#=zujpNMZPxsiGjAod_AYe2MIKQWdL$PFiJ4Q== #=zfpQp3t8=, #=z62AbdtR2rpyg9AM$LTJXJXROJxDTd3m3O2JBv13xT8Fk& #=zrW_AQiQdK8PT, Dictionary2& #=zs0BtrH3pDLVAHZN$$rFipC4=) at Docentric.Documents.ObjectModel.Document.#=zFN5fFdk=(Stream #=zij6HGRk=, SaveOptions #=zQ96s7daYnWPa, #=zkPYC5ywKNhIvZd0OWIb8CVTf$WCwrr3Ntt9R9B4jK1oEAgPMg== #=zxd00EFFfSCx6) at Docentric.Documents.ObjectModel.Document.Save(Stream stream, SaveOptions saveOptions) at CROPP.Services.Common.Utilities.MicrosoftWordHelper.ConvertToPdf(String inputFilePath) in C:\source\CROPP\CROPP.Services\Common\Utilities\MicrosoftWordHelper.cs:line 116
