Topic: Creating Multiple Adobe PDF printers

I use a barcode printing software package (Labelmatrix) that doesn't send page size information to the specified printer and therefore relies on the default size specified by the printer driver. To print to different page sizes, we have relied on multiple versions of the same PS printer driver to print to various size pages. Example

Listings in the Windows Printers Folder

I then specify a watched folder and distiller creates a pdf based on the default page size of whichever printer was specified in the output.

I am now trying to accomplish the same result using the Adobe PDF printer driver and want to get:

Adobe PDFLetter
Adobe PDFLegal
Adobe PDFTabloid

but don't have a clean way of adding additional Adobe PDF printer drivers to the list. (This is easily done with other printer drivers using the wizard but Adobe is not listed in the available printers in the add printer wizard.)

Does anyone know a standard way to add multiple Adobe PDF printers to the printers list?
