Tif to PDF (PDFWriter)- Brain is fried - Adobe Acrobat Windows

I hope someone can help me... Ex-coworker develpoed an application in Java that converts TIF image to PDF and adds a text to the bottom of the file.. ----------------- This is her line of code: .... Doent doent = new Doent(PageSize.A4, 50, 50, 50, 50); .... PdfWriter writer = PdfWriter.getInstance(doent, new FileOutputStream("tiffTest.pdf")); ------------------------ I want to do the same in VB.Net. Where can I get this PDFWriter? Do I need full ADBOBE professional version? If so, how do I call PDFWriter from my .net code? Any ideas/thoughts to get me going would be great......

    PDFWriter is discontinued. It was part of the Adobe Acrobat product
    (not the free Reader) up to 5.0.

    There is a similar facility in current Acrobat products, but you will
    not be able to use code written for PDFWriter. Also, you need to buy
    the Acrobat SDK to get developer info.

    Also, you mention VB.NET. Still another obstacle is that VB.NET is
    not a supported environment (though it may work), and that if you are
    thinking of a server, Acrobat is not licensed for server use.

    Not good news, really.

    The facility I mean is that in every version of Acrobat you can print
    to PDF. PDFWriter was superseded by the Distiller driver, now just
    called "Adobe PDF". With some effort, the Distiller API, in the
    Acrobat SDK, can be used to automate printing to PDF without a prompt.
    (Though there is some discussion in the Acrobat SDK forum at the
    moment suggesting it is harder than it should be).

    You said "There is a similar facility in current Acrobat products"...

    what is this facility and is this in SDK?

    Thanks so much for your help...

    oohhh..getting close...

    So, if in my code, I just want to print/send a TIFF image to PDF ...I need to look into Distiller API (Adobe PDF) and Distiller API is located in Acrobat SDK...is this correct?
