Topic: Multi-threaded PDF creation

I'm tring to convert proprietary format files to PDFs by printing them to a PDF printer driver. For now I've got a simple VC++ test harness, but the final goal is for a high volume, multi-threaded, server side VC++ app. I need to programmatically name each PDF file, and specify the folder in which it is created. Each print job could be a different file name in a different folder. So far I've used PDF995 and have been impressed with the output, but there's a problem. When the print job is sent, PDF995 stores the document name and path in an ini file, and then uses this to create the PDF. However in a multi-threaded environment another thread could change this ini file before the first PDF file is created. Does anyone know of an alternative printer driver or a better solution?
