  • Hi Kanalia,

     

    Thanks for posting in the MSDN Forum.

     

    It’s based on my experience we’re not able to convert Office documents into images directly without some kinds of 3<sup>rd</sup> plug-in. If you want to handle this only with VSTO, I would recommend you convert your document into PDF.

     

    Have a good day,

     

    Tom

  • I can convert it easily to PDF using third party libraries but my issue is that i want to convert the Office document to an image only as we do not want to rely on any third parties e.g. Adobe reader. Has anyone achieved this?
