And another command-line tool to try is ghostscript.

I used it a long time ago on WinXP (Ghostscript version 8.54) with a script
similar to this:

on convertPDF2JPEG
  -- put the path to GhostScript into tEXEpath
  -- put GIF or JPEG into tIMGformat
  -- put 300 into tIMGresolution
  -- put the path to a PDF into tSourcePDFfile
  -- put the path to your new image file into tTargetFile
  set the hideConsoleWindows to true -- eliminate CMD pop-up
  put tEXEpath && "-dPrinted -dQUIET -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=" & tIMGformat \
      && "-r" & tIMGresolution & "x" & tIMGresolution && "-sOutputFile="  &
quote \
      & tTargetFile & quote && quote & tSourcePDFfile & quote && "-c quit"
into shellcmd
  get shell(shellcmd)
end convertPDF2JPEG
