Using the converter in the background.

0 votes

Is it possible to run the converter from another .NET program without actually seeing the Converter on the screen? I need to convert a DWG file to DXF format and after manipulating the DXF file convert it back to a DWG. The DWG name will be supplied from the .NET program and the DWG name will be the same as the DXF file.

I am developing a free app that needs to process a DXF file, but sometimes a DWG file is supplied.

Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards,
Ben.

You can perform background conversion through the command line options supported by the application. The developers have created a PDF file with all the information related to conversion and file manipulation in the background.

If you know basic batch scripting, then you can use the information in the PDF below to compile a script to convert the files. I believe that you can implement it in the .NET Framework as well.
