Topic: How to print Level 2 PS from WinNT cmd line??

I have a application where I am passing PDF documents to Acrobat on the command line for printing to a specified printer using the /t command line option. However, if the printer happens to be a postscript printer, it is forcing the use of Level 1 postscript. I need to have it print Level 2.
I tried making a plug-in that reimplements AVDocPrintPages and AVDocPrintPagesWithParams to force the postscript level to 2, but it appears that Acrobat does not call either of these when it prints (Is this so? What does it use then?) which makes little sense (Why provide hooks if the hooks are not called?).
Using automation, there are commands for printing that will allow me to set the level to 2, but then I can't control what printer the output is sent to (Default printer only).
Is there a registry setting or something that I may be missing to force Level 2 as a default from the command line? I've run out of ideas.
The unix implementation has a -level2 option for this, why not Windows?
Any help offered would be greatly appreciated!
