Topic: Controlling View PDF option programmatically

Hi All,

I'm using the PDF Writer driver to have my usual paper reports dump out to PDFs instead. These reports are printed from a Visual FoxPro 6 application. In that app, file names can be set up so that printing does not bring up the file picker dialog (a must for batches). Unfortunately, from time to time, with no pattern I can discern, the option for View PDF gets toggled and my program crashes because Acrobat has opened the freshly created document rather than just printing it.

Is there any way to force the printer driver to not View the PDF as soon as it's created? Or does anyone know of circumstances that might be causing the view option to be reset (there's been no user interaction to cause this).
