Topic: How to print to a printer which is not the Win standard printer?

1) Acrobat|AcroRd32 /p /h ANY.PDF
...either of the app stays open after printing, printing of a further .PDF is no problem, but only to the standard printer
2) Acrobat|AcroRd32 /t ANY.PDF \\SERVER\PRINTER
...either of the apps stays open after printing, BUT printing of a further .PDF is NOT possible!?! Either of the apps refuses to print anything unless it is closed - and opened again automatically when starting the next print.
OK! Accepted! It's not the first app in my live with a misbehaviour :-) Let's forget about the command line and use OLE from a self-written VB app. ( Yes! I do RTFM! --> IACOverview.PDF - DDE Support: "IMPORTANT: You should use OLE automation instead of DDE whenever possible." )
Referencing the Acrobat.TLB in VB supplies an object.method CAcroAVDoc.PrintPagesSilent(Ex) which prints to the standard printer only, too.
It does not supply an AVDoc.AVDocPrintPagesWithParams which I found in CoreAPIReference.PDF.
Thanks in advance for any ideas
