    namespace PrintPptx
        class Program
            static void Main()
                // Get the name of the printer
                string printerName = PdfUtil.DefaultPrinterName;
                // Set printer settings for next print job
                // More settings are available at:
                PdfSettings settings = new PdfSettings();
                settings.PrinterName = printerName;
                settings.SetValue("Output", @"C:\Temp\test.pdf");
                settings.SetValue("ShowSettings", "never");
                settings.SetValue("ShowSaveAs", "never");

                settings.SetValue("RememberLastFolderName", "no");
                settings.SetValue("SuppressErrors", "yes");
                // Print pptx file requires that Microsoft Powerpoint is installed
