    Converting TIF images to PDF by passing .exe file with its aruments

    I have one .exe file which converts *.tif images into *.pdf file. And i have one class library where i need to pass this .exe file with its arguments. Here arguments i need to pass are scalesector, outputpath (path to generate pdf file) and inputpath (path where tif image exists).
    Here i have big tif images like its height will be more than 60,000. So i need to achieve it in C#.

    I have written the code as below.

    But i am unable to get the PDF in output directory. What may be the problem?
    When i checked Output directory will be empty.

    private void converttopdf()
    ProcessStartInfo startInfo = new ProcessStartInfo();
    startInfo.FileName = "E:\\pdfbigimage_src\\Debug\\pdfbigimage.exe";
    startInfo.Arguments = "-s 0.4 -o E:\\output\\out9.pdf E:\\Input_Images\\SI00004623\\2010026567_001.tif";
    startInfo.Verb = null;
    startInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
    startInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
    startInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;

    Nothing seems obviously wrong with your code (to my single read through), but that doesn't mean something isn't wrong (since obviously it is: it doesn't work :-)).

    More realistically though, using C# for this task is a bit overkill. I recommend you use either batch programming (if you're using windows) or shell scripting (if a linux-like environment).

    Resource for batch files: http://www.ericphelps.com/batch/

    It isn't very hard to learn and it's a handy tool to have available. You know what they say... when all you have is C#, everything looks like ... problem that can be solved by C#.. (erm.. right?)
