We have released an update to the Solid Framework SDK. A few of the highlights include:
While this work was done primarily to help Apple software open .DOCX files, this improvement is also beneficial for making .DOCX output more editable.
- General PDF conversion quality improvements

Solid Framework is designed to extract its support files to the current users %AppData% directory on load. This is convenient, as there is only one dll to manage in your installer. But sometimes this can cause issues. One issue that can arise is a sporadic issue with overzealous 3rd party malware applications deleting the support files in the %AppData% folder, even though they are signed, strong named and time stamped. To work around this, you can extract the support files beforehand and reference these files in your installer.
To extract the 32 and 64 bit support folders from Solid Framework, you use the ExtractFramework.exe tool. Download the tool and SolidFramework AnyCPU dll into a folder. On the command line, run “ExtractFramework.exe .\SolidFramework.dll <Extraction folder> All”. <Extraction folder> should be replaced with a directory of your choosing.

Eating your own dog food, also called dogfooding, is slang used to reference a scenario in which a company uses its own technology to demonstrate the quality and capabilities of the product.
All our v8 applications are built using Solid Framework.
The v8 rewrite was a conscious shift back to our core features: a focus on document reconstruction functionality. The rewrite was required to take advantage of 64-bit architectures and multi-core processors. A rewrite using Microsoft .NET was required so that we could engineer the product using our own Solid Framework SDK (unlike the older products which were based on legacy architecture).
We have confidence that our .NET Solid Framework SDK is the best document reconstruction SDK available on the market. We have built our latest desktop and batch solutions using this technology.
You can use Solid Framework with confidence too. Create a developer portal account and get started today.
