About easyPDF SDK Loader Object

What is the easyPDF SDK Loader Object?

The easyPDF SDK Loader Object is a helper object to enable easyPDF SDK on server-side environment.

If easyPDF SDK is used in a server environment (either directly or indirectly), you need to access easyPDF SDK through this object, instead of accessing them directly. The Loader object eliminates many of the server-side configuration that you would otherwise have to deal with.

Instead of this way:

Set oPrinter = Server.CreateObject("easyPDF.Printer.8")
Set oPrintJob = oPrinter.PrintJob

Do it this way:

Set oLoader = Server.CreateObject("easyPDF.Loader.8")
Set oPrinter = oLoader.LoadObject("easyPDF.Printer.8")
Set oPrintJob = oPrinter.PrintJob

Note: The new Native API introduces an alternative solution called Impersonation, which replaces the Loader Service. However, the classic COM API requires the use of the Loader Service on the server side.
