Topic: Setting Printer Programmatically

I know this questions has been asked a bunch, but I have found not satisfactory answers. In addition, I am new to using the acrobat.dll that comes with Acrobat. So, I may be over look things as well.
Here is background and my questions:
A bunch of PDF's are generated and stored on a file system daily. The client needs a utility that will go through these (based on a variety of paramenters) and send the to various printers (records rooms). So, I need to automate the printing of PDFs with the ability to set the printer. Sounds like a pretty straight forward task to me, but my searching as proved otherwise.
After much searching, it seems that I could use the acrobat.dll to do this. And, I actually was able to automate the printing of pdfs using AVDoc and AVApp. The problem is I cannot figure out how to set the printer (and we will have about 100 of them). Am I going down the right path, but missing something. Or, should I be going some other route. This seems like it should be a pretty straight forward common task. Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Here are the details of the environment:
-Windows XP Pro
-.Net C# wrapping Acrobat.dll
-Network printers all of the place
-We have Acrobat 6 licences, but I have been playing with 7
If other info would be helpful, please let me know.
