Topic: Creating a PDF file from a Word document.

I am on a development team for a software whose front-end is written in asp, vbscript, and javascript. We have a report generator that creates reports in MS Word from data in a database. The generator is written in Visual Basic, and the exe that runs the generator is located on each user's machine and not on the server. We are looking for a way to automatically create a PDF file from the MS Word document that the report generator creates. Is there any way that we can put the PDF drivers on the server even though the exe that creates the reports is not on the server, and be able to access the drivers to create the PDF file from within the exe? The reason I'm asking is because we don't want to have to install the PDF writer on every user's machine. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
