I have a website in ASP hosted remotely on a shared server.

I want to create PDF reports on the fly, but my web host won't (obviously) let me make any changes to the root IIS directory, so I can't install any of the ActiveX controls that would let me create PDFs using ASP.

I've never used .NET, but I'm willing to try, and I have experience with C/C++, so C# seems very familiar to me.

My question is, is PDFsharp the type of thing I'm looking for, or does it still require that I make changes to the server that require root access?

Sorry to be such a newbie and posting this...

If your webhost is allowing FrontPage access, then you should be able to fire up visual studio (Web Express edition works well and is free), connect to your site, and add the dll's to your application's bin directory (or create it if it doesn't exist).

In visual Studio, click "File -> Open Website" and connect to your website/application.

Then, Click "Website -> Add Reference" and add the DLL's you need (Migradoc.DocumentObjectModel, PDFSharp, PDFSharp.Charting, Migradoc.Rendering, etc) from the versions you have hopefully built or downloaded to your PC.

Once they're in your "bin" directory, you should be able to use them in any asp.net pages in that part of the directory tree on your site.

Hasta.
