Topic: Redirect folder in "Adobe PDF printer"

Hi Everybody,

My platform is Windows XP and I have installed Adobe Acrobat 6.0. My printer is “Adobe PDF”. I am coding in VB 6.0, but it really doesn't matter with me.

I have an ActiveX control which edits DXF files. I have to change the edited file to PDF format. There is a print method in this ActiveX control, so I use this print method and I can not use those functions which print documents in Acrobat SDK. I would like to change the folder for the printed file. It always prints in “My Documents”. How can I redirect the printer output (of Adobe PDF) to another directory?

The answer to the above question will solve my problem, but I would like to know how to change the printed file name as well. It always prints with the OCX name.

Thank You,
