Content transformation - TIFF to PDF/Word not working

I have created rules to transform TIFF to PDF and TIFF to Word. It seems to fire and I see corresponding PDF and Word documents being created. However, these turn out to be TIFFs with PDF and Word extensions and not documents in pdf/ word format.

I noticed a post regarding a similar issue with v3.0. I am on v3.2, is this still an issue or am I missing some configuration that actually does the transformation.

And, in an attempt to force the transformation I tried downloading libtiff library and using tiff2pdf transform as outlined https://confluence.nau.edu/display/ITSACADOLE/Add+tiff+to+pdf+transformation

However, for some reason Alfresco cannot resolve the location of my exe on Windows, even though I have specified it in custom-repository.properties as shown below.

tiff2pdf.exe=D:\\apps\\Server\\GnuWin32\\bin\\tiff2pdf

My guess is it has to do with the fact that custom-repository.properties was a pre 3.2 config tool. I am not sure where to specify external exes in v3.2
TIA
