Topic: Creating PDF's from HTML files

We have an existing VB application that generates a simple report in HTML format. We now need to convert that HTML file to a PDF file through the same VB program.
I've read through a lot of the SDK documentation as well as several posts on this forum and the adobe forum. There doesn't seem to be a way to easily do it.
Has anyone found any way to do this without using another 3rd party tool? Some ideas:
- Using AdobePDFMakerX's CreatePDF method, or
- Using the AcroExch.App MenuItemExecute method, or
- Using DDE & OLE to Open the file and then save is as PDF, or
- Printing something to a .PS file through a WindowsAPI (ShellExecute, or something else...?) and having Distiller convert it...??
whatever it is, it needs to happen automatically - no user input for dialog boxes popping up etc...
If not, can you recommend a tool that will allow us to programmatically convert an HTML file to a PDF...? (Preferably something cheap....)
