You're trying to track down who is using a particular Windows DLL? Try
SysInternal's Process Explorer. Start logging before you do your PDF
stuff, then stop logging, and use ProcExplorer's filtering abilities to
search just for this dll name. That should show you how the DLL is used
in the system, and by what app(s).
