Topic: Printing a PDF file programmatically?

My goal is to print PDF files in a controlled manner in a secure environment. The Acrobat ActiveX control is unsuitable because the user can save the file to disk, which is unacceptable in this environment. IAC is unsuitable because not all users will have Acrobat Exchange.
My reading of the Core API documentation suggests that the PDF Library functions PDFLPrintDoc or PDFLPrintPDF might do what I want, but the document refers to headers files (PDFLPrint.h and PrintLib.h respectively) which appear not to come with the SDK.
What would be the optimum method of printing a PDF file programmatically assuming that the user does not have Acrobat Exchange or even, perhaps, Reader? The SDK is confusing on this. Pointers to code samples would be much appreciated.
