Project Description

I need an application that runs on a Windows 7 command prompt. It should be executed with this syntax:

[url removed, login to view]

For example: [url removed, login to view] C:\path\[url removed, login to view] C:\path\[url removed, login to view] 2 c:\outputfolder

0. Open a text log file and save what is being done.

1. Launch Acrobat XI Professional

2. Open the View -> Compare Documents menu option

3. Set Document1 to "c:\path\[url removed, login to view]". Make a log entry.

4. Set Document2 to "c:\path\[url removed, login to view]". Make a log entry.

5. Set Document Description to Reports, Presentation, or Scanned based on the argument 1, 2, or 3.

6. Generate the comparison (click OK). Make a log entry.

7. File -> Save As to the c:\outputfolder directory. Make a log entry.

(7a. If there is a prompt, can the program click OK or "clear" the message?)

8. And, if the above process doesn't complete in 10 minutes, kill the process and make an entry in the log.

I believe this can be done using Visual [url removed, login to view] and the Acrobat XI SDK and Interapplication Communication (IAC).

[url removed, login to view]

[url removed, login to view]
