Topic: default preferences in automation

we are using acro 6 in automation to convert a pdf to a tiff by opening the pdf and executing the saveas... command in automation. the one problem we are having is that the default compression for tiff is lzw but we have to save the tiff with no compression... we are calling acrobat 6 from a visual basic dll called from an asp page. in this environment, I don't know what user the acrobat dll is running under, (it isn't the IIS user account)
I see 3 ways to resolve this:
1.) modify the registry key that dictates that the default compression for PDFConversion to tiff is LZW; (change it to none) OR
2.) figure out what user acrobat is running under when called in automation from a DLL running in an IIS application (ASP page) that way I can open acrobat interactively and save the default PDFConversion compresion as none. this assumes that the user is not the System account.
3.) set the PDFConversion compression in automation to none (preferred)
can anyone help with this?
