[Perlfect-search] PDF Indexing Problems

Here is my execution of pdftotext from the command prompt:

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Search_Demo\catalog\documentation\care_management\v50-51>
pdftotext DataVision_UserManual_50-51.pdf

It generated a text file called DataVision_UserManual_50-51.txt in that same
directory.
(C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Search_Demo\catalog\documentation\care_management\v50-51
)

Then (I am assuming), Perlfect uses the text file to index the pdf?

Thanks,
Marc Quimby

Perlfect Search calls the external converter defined in %EXT_FILTER and 
uses its result (text or HTML). I guess your configuration is broken. 
Please try to call the converter (usually pdftotext) manually and see what 
it prints.
