I need to setup a conversion service for internal user (and internal third party software).
The user (or software agent) should put the file to convert (in doc format) into a given network share then the server should convert it to pdf and delete the original file. The conversion can be delayed (the task can be scheduled to run every 5 minutes for example)
My infrastructure is Microsoft based but i can easily setup a linux VM if convenient.
I looked into LibreOffice/OpenOffice batch conversion to PDF with no luck http://superuser.com/questions/17612/batch-convert-word-documents-to-pdfs-free
Many of the given solution requires user interaction, this service should serve also third party software.
Thank you in advance for your kind replies
