pdfDocument.RegistrationName = "demo"
pdfDocument.RegistrationKey = "demo"

Set comHelpers = pdfDocument.ComHelpers

' Create document
Set page1 = comHelpers.CreatePage(comHelpers.PAPERFORMAT_A4)
pdfDocument.Pages.Add(page1)
' or load existing one:
'pdfDocument.Load "c:\test\some-document.pdf"


' Set document encryption algorythm
pdfDocument.Security.EncryptionAlgorithm = comHelpers.ENCRYPTIONALGORITHM_RC4_40BIT
' Set various user permissions
pdfDocument.Security.AllowPrintDocument = False
pdfDocument.Security.AllowContentExtraction = False
pdfDocument.Security.AllowModifyAnnotations = False
pdfDocument.Security.PrintQuality = comHelpers.PRINTQUALITY_LOWRESOLUTION

' Set owner password
pdfDocument.Security.OwnerPassword = "ownerpassword"

' Set user password
pdfDocument.Security.UserPassword = "userpassword"

' Save protected document to file
pdfDocument.Save("result.pdf")
