Introduction

pdfHarmony is an application that brings a new sense of security and reliability to electronic document workflows because it can identify “broken” files and pages just like Adobe® Acrobat®. If Adobe Acrobat can resolve the problem, then so can pdfHarmony.

Memory Requirements

Minimum free memory available to run the application: 512 MBytes

Windows Installation

Windows installation is handled by the installer and does not require any special handling.

Unix Installation

Setting environmental variables ( All Unix Platforms )

In this release, there are two additional environmental variables that need to be set for pdfHarmony on all UNIX platforms. If you run pdfHarmony from the pdfharmony script created during installation, these environmental variables will be set by the script. If you run pdfharmonyapp directly, you will need to set these environmental variables to run pdfHarmony. Once pdfHarmony is installed, you can view the variables needed by looking at the pdfharmony script created by the installer.

Setting the Appligent home directory ( All Unix Platforms )

The environmental variable that stores the location of the Appligent home directory is APPLIGENT_HOME. The default location for the Appligent home directory is /usr/local/appligent. The Appligent home directory contains the library files and resources needed to run pdfHarmony. It also contains license information for pdfHarmony.

Example

export APPLIGENT_HOME=/usr/local/appligent

Setting the APDFL library path ( All Unix except AIX )

The APDFL library path must be added to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable. The APDFL library path is located in a subdirectory of the APPLIGENT_HOME directory.
The path should be set to ${APPLIGENT_HOME}/APDFLX.X.X/Libs

Example

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:${APPLIGENT_HOME}/APDFLX.X.X/Libs

Setting the APDFL library path ( AIX Only )

The APDFL library path for AIX must be added to the LIBPATH variable. The APDFL library path is located in a subdirectory of the APPLIGENT_HOME directory.
The path should be set to ${APPLIGENT_HOME}/APDFLX.X.X/Libs.

Example

export LIBPATH=${LIBPATH}:${APPLIGENT_HOME}/APDFLX.X.X/Libs
