chm to pdf converter compatible with windows 7

Hi guys, i am using windows 7 32 bit. All i want is to have a free chm to pdf converter which also supports batch compilation. I mean i have to convert a lot of chm books to pdf format for study purpose. So if anybody come across any such free software please let me know. Thank you all in advance...

Hi hem,

I've had a look, and there doesn't appear to be any free converters available, nor are there any batch capable ones.

However, the following program does work in Windows 7 64-bit: PDF Creator - novaPDF - Create PDF files

I tried this version: novaPDF Lite Desktop

As far as I know, all versions are fully functional without any restrictions, but they include the following at the bottom of every page if you haven't purchased it.

Hi hem,

Can you zip one of the books that you can't get to convert properly and attach it to a reply. I'll have a look and see if I can do it. Use zip and not rar.

Hi hem,

Thanks for the file. It would appear that you can only convert a chapter at a time, so you will have to convert and append each chapter in turn. This is not a limitation of NovaPDF as it does the same when converting to .xps format which is included in Windows 7, so it would appear to be a limitation of the .chm file. I will continue and see if I can find an alternative program for you.

You may want to give doPDF a try ( doPDF Free PDF Converter - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com ). They say it can convert any printable document. I never tried it on chm documents, but on many others and it worked perfectly. Installs as a printer and you use it as if you were printing - just change the default printer to do.PDF when the print control window comes up.

I've found an alternative: Free download ABC Amber CHM Convertor, convert CHM documents to PDF, HTML, HLP, RTF, DOC, TXT

Again, it is not free but it works in Windows 7 64-bit. Free download ABC Amber CHM Convertor, convert CHM documents to PDF, HTML, HLP, RTF, DOC, TXT

Reading the information on the website, once you have purchased the program it DOES support batch processing:

I tried it with the file you sent, and it converted it in a single pass, extracting each chapter. Like NovaPDF, the program places a watermark at the top of every page until you purchase it. Unfortunately, I couldn't attach and send you the resultant file as it was too big.
