I'm trying to edit the PDFWritr.ini to suppres the print dialog box

In VB I'm using this API call to change the .ini to add the file name of the pdf file. This works as I have checked the .ini file afterwards

Declare Function WritePrivateProfileString Lib "kernel32" Alias _
"WritePrivateProfileStringA" (ByVal lpApplicationName As String, ByVal _
lpKeyName As String, ByVal lpString As String, ByVal lpFileName As String) As Long

lRC = WritePrivateProfileString("Acrobat PDFWriter", _
"PDFFileName", sFile, "c:\windows\system\pdfwritr.ini")

any help would be great
