''' <summary>
''' The following sample illustrates how to convert PDF, XPS, image, MS Office, and 
''' other image document formats to XOD format.
''' Certain file formats such as PDF, generic XPS, EMF, and raster image formats can 
''' be directly converted to XOD. Other formats such as MS Office 
''' (Word, Excel, Publisher, Powerpoint, etc) can be directly converted via interop. 
''' These types of conversions guarantee optimal output, while preserving important 
''' information such as document metadata, intra document links and hyper-links, 
''' bookmarks etc. 
''' In case there is no direct conversion available, PDFNet can still convert from 
''' any printable document to XOD using a virtual printer driver. To check 
''' if a virtual printer is required use Convert::RequiresPrinter(filename). In this 
''' case the installing application must be run as administrator. The manifest for this 
''' sample specifies appropriate the UAC elevation. The administrator privileges are 
''' not required for direct or interop conversions. 
''' Please note that PDFNet Publisher (i.e. 'pdftron.PDF.Convert.ToXod') is an
''' optionally licensable add-on to PDFNet Core SDK. For details, please see
