Topic: Adobe PDF as printer in 5/6

Sure this has been asked before but i saw no clear answers.

Our application writes reports to hDC. Displayed in our app in a simple picture box and written to print drivers for printers. We had done some special options when a user chose the 'Adobe PDF Writer' as their printer previously.

We would save all reports to 1 folder, name them ourselves, etc.

With Adobe 6, the PDF Writer is gone. There is still a Adobe PDF print driver which prints anything into an Adobe PDF.

Is there anyway with this new print driver to specify you own filename and whether the pdf is subsequently launched after creation?

If not, does the SDK provide an hDC to write to?

Please, no 'Go Check the SDK' answers...i have exhausted my search capabilities on adobe's site and am not an ASN member.
