Topic: PDFWriter while workstation is locked

I am trying to get PDFWriter to work while my workstation is locked (NT4.0). I am controlling Visio from VB and printing to PDFWriter, which works great - using the registry settings to specify a file name and keeping the reader from coming up - but, when I lock my workstation it doesn't work. The reader pops up, or at least it is there when I log back in, and I don't get the output of the PDFWriter. If I check the NT event logs it says it printed, but no PDF. Any ideas?

And please, no comments on servers and licensing issues. I have spoken with customer service at Adobe and they say what I am doing is ok. I will be calling back to verify that based on responses I've gotten on the Adobe forums, but I'd really like the question above answered if possible! :)

Thanks in advance,
