RAD PDF requires that several pieces of software be setup and configured prior to installation
This section contains the following subsections.
The Web, Standard, Enterprise, or Datacenter edition of Microsoft Windows Server 2008, 2012, 2016, or 2019 must be installed. Unless otherwise stated in this documentation, Windows Server was installed and configured with the default settings.
Note: RAD PDF has been compiled to support both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) platforms. For 64-bit platforms, only x64 (AMD64 / Intel64 / x86-64) processors are supported. The less common IA64 (Itanium) processors are not supported in this build. If Itanium support is needed, please contact us.
Microsoft IIS 7.0 or higher
IIS (Internet Information Services) version 7.0 or higher must be installed on the Windows Server.
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 or higher
The .NET Framework, version 3.5 (with SP1 or higher), 4.0, 4.5, 4.6, or 4.7, must be installed.
SQL Server is only required for the PdfWebControl; it is not required for Lite Documents / the PdfWebControlLite.
The Express, Web, Workgroup, Standard, Enterprise, or Developer Edition of Microsoft SQL Server must be installed. SQL Server does not need to be installed locally (and for deployments in which multiple servers are using RAD PDF for the same web application, it is not recommended). The SQL Server instance must be accessible via a standard SQL connection string from the application server on which RAD PDF is installed.
