In an ASP.NET project I need to generate a PDF for the user to download which is made from HTML. That HTML has img's in it too, which need to be embedded. It would also be great if links are clickable.

Now i've tried a whole range of different product demo's, and they all either don't work, are classic ASP, or are horridly expensive.

This is for a commercial application.

The most promising (although expensive) looked like http://www.websupergoo.com/abcpdf-1.htm[^] but the example code from HTML to PDF (found here: http://www.websupergoo.com/helppdf8net/source/5-abcpdf6/doc/1-methods/addimagetochain.htm[^])crashes IIS, on every page I try, with a very generic error message.

Please can someone suggest a product for this. I can't run an CMD line app on the server unfortunately, so it does have to be just a dll that I stick in.

Thanks!

I've used ABCPdf before and not had any problems. Now I tend to use iTextSharp[^] which takes a bit more work (because the documentation is not that good) but works well.

Did you manage to convert HTML to PDF using ABCpdf? If so, am I using the right method(AddImageToChain)?

If only I could remember the specifics: been a 2-3 years: I'll see if I can dig some code up.
