Bug Fixes

The following issues were resolved in this release of Toolkit:

Bug ID #




FILE SPECIFIC: After encryption, the file fails to open and results in Error 14.

Toolkit no longer attempts to encrypt the object stream twice.


.NET ONLY: Calling EncryptFile multiple times results in a memory leak.

A change was made to release memory objects.


FILE SPECIFIC: On a 32-bit system, CopyForm crashes when opening the PDF.

Changed the way extremely large numbers are handled in the PDF on 32-bit systems.


Toolkit version locks up when attempting OpenInputFile.

Emptied the /Kids array within the /Pages object array.


Using MergeFile results in an Access Violation error, "Attempted to read or write protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt."

Changed the way non-flate encoded data is handled in the font program object.


FILE SPECIFIC: Merged documents contain additional pages that are very small in size. The error, "There was a problem reading this document (23) with Toolkit version," appears when attempting to scroll through the pages.

Toolkit was updated to handle empty pages.


Unable to convert TIFs to PDFs without using any local file storage. PrintTIFF results in an Access Violation error.

Although TiffToPDF, JPEGToPDF and ImageToPDF all take input memory files, they do not currently output memory files. A change was made to PrintTIFF to resolve the crashing issue.


FILE SPECIFIC: The error, "Univers_57_Condensed," occurs on CopyForm or Merge and the resulting output file contains garbled data.

Support was added for abbreviations in PDF stream object dictionaries.


FILE SPECIFIC: The error, "Unhandled exception at 0x0177bb0f in wscript.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation writing location 0x00000000," occurs when attempting to Merge the file.

The decryption component was updated for handling of blank, encrypted strings in the input PDF.
