    PDF_OUTPUTRANGE         0x20
    PDF_OUTPUTPDFINFO       0x40

    PDF_OUTPUTPROCESSDETAIL: Output the detail information of processing
    The output string will be return by pbstrRetVal
    in Convert method, See Convert for detail.

    PDF_OUTPUTPROCESSTIME: Output the process time for every pdf file.
    The output string will be return by pbstrRetVal
    in Convert method, See Convert for detail.

    PDF_OUTPUTRANGE: Knowledge the processor only a subset of pages
    need to be output, the page range pass in through
    i_bstrPageRange. see i_bstrPageRange.

    ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    3. HRESULT Convert(
    [in] BSTR bstrPDF,
    [in] BSTR bstrTXT,
    [out, retval] BSTR* pbstrRetVal);

    @param BSTR bstrPDF: The absolute path and file name of the pdf file you
    want to convert.
    @param BSTR bstrTXT: The absolute path and file name of the text file you
    want to convert to.
    @param BSTR* pbstrRetVal: The result and detail process/process time information
    will return by this pointer(If you set the control flag
    in EngageProcessor)

    @return S_OK: Process the pdf file successfully. Check *pbstrRetVal for detail
    information.
