Has anyone figured out how to specify FilePrintTo(Ex) parameters that happen to contain spaces (e.g., HP LaserJet 4)? It seems like it must be possible, since Windows uses DDE to send FilePrintToEx (WinNT4 at least) for the printto action, unless it's a VB limitation. Curiously, on Win 98 and Acrobat 4.05, and with Acrobat 5, the (unsupported?) /t command line method is used.

I've worked around the problem of file paths that contain spaces by converting to a short path using the GetShortPathName Windows API function.
