Topic: Automatic DOC --> PDF *without* Word

I'm looking to write a Win2K COM+ server component that can take a Word doc and print/convert it to pdf, and save it to a different path and filename. Since it will be on a production server and processing a large volume of documents, I do not want to have Word installed on the server, and therefore cannot launch Word to print via Distiller.

I'd prefer to use VB if at all possible, but from what I have read and tried so far, there is no easy way (or no way at all) to print or convert a Word doc to a pdf using VB/OLE Automation.

Is this possible with VB, or C++, or even possible at all?
