in reply to Printing PDFs as a windows service

stephanm,

The folks at $work tried something similar to this (sans Perl, sadly), and, well, the results left something to be desired. One thing we found (and maybe this is what you're running into), is that the user profile that is going to run Acrobat Reader must have the "LocalLow" ({user-home}\AppData\LocalLow) directory created.

I wonder if something like GhostScript wouldn't work better from a non-interactive standpoint? I haven't tried it, personally.

Best of luck,
