I want to parse a pdf file in a pdf viewer with a cmd commant or any other none GUI way

How dangerous could it be to simply try that?

I tried it with no luck
I cannot also locate a win32 manual, neither a xpdf.exe file
I only got xpdf tools for win32

any hint?

or any other solution? maybe a stand-alone library implementation?

Did you look through the xpdf package at all?  There is no xpdf.exe file.  In the bin32/bin64 folders of the xpdf package, you'll find the following executables:

pdftotext.exe
pdftops.exe
pdftoppm.exe
pdfinfo.exe
pdfimages.exe
pdffonts.exe
pdfdetach.exe


I coloured the one you need to use.

Since you said you wanted to use MuPDF:

[copy or print]
"c:\path\to\mupdf.exe" "c:\my\path\somefile.pdf"

Obviously, change the paths to match your computer.
