I installed this product on our DEV farm which has 2 web front ends, one app and one SQL server. The muhimbi conversion service was installed on a non sharepoint server (not part of the farm). the installation is pretty straight foward. Not much configuration to do.
A few caveats: Make sure you follow the instructions and install conversion service with Office 2013 on a non-sharepoint server. Then reboot and open each app (word, excel, powerpoint,ect). * Do not install office 2013 on same server as Sharepoint 2010 or your next upgrade of sharepoint will fail with "infopath" errors*. Overall, great product.

Fantastic Tool, Fantastic Pricing, Fantastic Support
I implemented the Muhimbi PDF Converter for a very complex document management system containing 100,000+ complex AutoCAD documents. PDF versions were needed for use at workstations which did not have client software with which to render the drawings. Muhimbi did an excellent job of handling a wide range of these documents, and the vendor was extremely responsive to any problems that we encountered. A workflow was built to automatically generate new PDF versions of CAD documents whenever new versions were published in SharePoint.
The product was extremely economical, fast, and reliable. A quality solution at a fantastic price.
Powerful programmable API with great code examples
Awesome support from Muhimbi
Certainly Worth it for Our Customers
Our customer uses this in a weekly run Nintex workflow to produce large numbers of PDF documents (combining larger numbers of word, excel, etc. files together in to PDFs), almost without fail. This process would've been exceedingly difficult without Muhimbi, and the product has only gotten better since we first started using it.
PDF converter works great. We use it to merge a bunch of InfoPath forms and their attachments into one large PDF almost effortlessly. Integrates nicely with Nintex Workflows as well. Support is very fast, friendly, and knowledgeable.
Great product and service
I was having trouble when a pdf was created and couldn't figure out why. I sent a question through the website and got help right away. It took some back and forth to get to the answer but David stuck with it until our problem was resolved. And it was our problem not the product. The pdf converter is a great product and the support is awesome!
