Hi Zak

Thread t = new Thread();

The setDaemon method in the Thread class is 'not' overloaded and is defined as:

It takes a boolean argument and 'not' a Thread object as argument. If your example is referring to the setDaemon method in the Thread class, then it will 'not' compile. If it's overridden in your custom class, then it's a whole different story.
Hope that will help.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
