Topic: Correction: Batch Plotting from Command Line
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 38792

I've developed an application using Visual Basic to batch plot PDF's from files placed in a directory. Currently, it works with Adobe Acrobat 4.05, however, I experience a problem when using Adobe Acrobat 5.0.
This is the command line I currently use:

c:\program files\adobe\acrobat 4.0\reader\acrord32.exe /t filename printername

When I try this with the appropriate pathing and version 5.0, what is happening is not an error meassage, but Acrobat opens the file with Acrobat in the task bar and does not print until you close the program. Then it opens the next file from the pick list.

Any ideas? If you would like to see my VB, let me know. TIA. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is not actually my VB, but one of my co-workers VB who does not have time to pursue the matter; I am serving as the researcher/liaison.
