    Export PDF programmatically (to text) - which adobe tool/SDK




      I need to extract text from thousands of PDF files programmatically. 


      Is there anything offered (by Adobe) which i can use to programmatically do this? 


      Preferrably an ActiveX/COM object which i can instantiate via VBScript or similar, under Windows 7 64-Bit.


      Alternatively are there any good third-party vendors offering components to do this?  I did try a few but some crashed under VBScript for some reason / do not seem stable.


      I tried calling the adobe technical sales people (to ask for a product/sdk suggestion) but i was unable to articulate my question... 


      - i was unable to get past the point explaining what a "text file" was..


      Please help!
