All versions of GemBox.Document come in the Microsoft Windows Installer (.msi) format, which ensures you can easily install / uninstall and use multiple GemBox.Document versions on the same machine. To install GemBox.Document Free 2.1 enter you e-mail, download setup and execute it with administrator privileges.
GemBox.Document Free delivers the same performance and set of features as the Professional version.
However, the Free version is limited to 20 paragraphs. This limitation is enforced during reading or writing files.
ComponentInfo.FreeLimitReached event allows you to control what happens when your application reaches free version limit.
Using GemBox.Document component is easy and straightforward. The following code is needed to generate simple Word and PDF files from your application:

var doc = new DocumentModel();

Dim doc = New DocumentModel()
doc.Sections.Add(New Section(doc, New Paragraph(doc, "Hello world!")))
