Topic: Printing a PDF file to a specified Printer

I need to be able to print a PDF file to a specified printer rather than the default printer in a server side program. I implemented this originally by using one of the command line options for Acrobat Reader version 4.0 i.e. AcroRd32 with /n /t option to allow silent printing to a specified printer. I could not identify a library/component that provided this capability.

The behaviour of this command seems to have changed for version 5.0 of the Reader i.e. the reader remains open. I
now need an alternative way of doing this. Can anyone suggest a component or library that will allow me to print a PDF file specifying the printer that it should be printed to? All of the APIs I have looked at seem to use the default printer for silent printing.
