Q: I installed Document Converter Pro and it appears to constantly use more than 10% of the CPU resources, even when not converting documents. Is there any way I can decrease the CPU usage?
A: By default, Document Converter Pro is scanning the input folders continuously - so if you have a lot of subfolders/files, or some of your input folders are network drives/shares, or you have an antivirus software installed - the scanning can take some time and consume the CPU resources. What you can do is make Document Converter Pro scan the input folders once every 2 seconds - this should decrease the CPU usage.
For that edit the dConverter.ini file and add this line ScanningDelay=2000 to the [MAIN] section (the interval is in milliseconds, 1 second=1000 milliseconds).
Q: When trying to run Document Converter Pro as windows service I get an "ERROR. CHECK SYSTEM PRINTER" error. What should I do?
A: Make sure that dcStart service is set to run in the Administrator or a member of the local Admins group user account (dcStart will not work in the LocalSystem account).
Q: When converting URL/HTML files I get a "parser timeout" error. What can I do to fix this?
Q: When converting PDF files the paper size in the output document is different from the original. How can I fix that?
A: By default, Document Converter Pro will set the page size to the MediaBox. Some PDF files, however, have a CropBox that is smaller than the MediaBox and may include white space, registration or cutting marks outside the CropBox. To force Document Converter Pro use the CropBox rather than the MediaBox, edit the dConverter.ini file and add this line UseCropBox=1 to the [PSPDF] section.
Q: How can I force Document Converter Pro to use the BoundingBox as paper size when converting EPS and PostScript files?
A: Edit the dConverter.ini file and add this line UseBoundingBox=1 to the [PSPDF] section.
