How to edit the Conversion Service's configuration file

The Muhimbi Conversion Service comes with a comprehensive configuration file. All possible configuration settings are already present in this file with the most common settings enabled by default.

This configuration file contains in-line comments and The Administration Guide (section Tuning the Document Conversion service) provides additional information.

If you wish to make changes, or if you have been asked by our support desk to make changes, then the configuration file can be edited as follows:

  • Open Muhimbi.DocumentConverter.Service.exe.config in your favourite text editor (notepad works as well). A handy shortcut to the configuration / installation folder that holds this config file can be found in the Muhimbi Document Converter Windows Start Menu group.
  • Search for the configuration key you wish to modify.
  • Save the configuration file.
  • Restart the Muhimbi Document Converter Service using the Services Management Console or using the command prompt:

Net stop "Muhimbi Document Converter Service"

Net start "Muhimbi Document Converter Service"
