    Abobe 9: Printing a PDF file using a DOS command

    Lalit Vazirani Level 1

      I have Adobe 9.4.0 on a server and would like to print PDF files using a DOS command. The DOS command we are using is:

      start Acrord32.exe /T/S/h/O "C:\BO_Archival_Code_Deployment\Print\TINF018_C.pdf" "Lexmark T644 PS3 -"


      With this, we are able to print only page 1 of the PDF file. The other pages remain unprinted. This means there is no issue related to printer configuration, firewalls, etc.


      Other observations:

      1) When we print the file manually after opening it in Adobe 9.4.0, all pages are printed.

      2) We found that the above command provides different results with Adobe 8.2.6 i.e. with the DOS command, all pages are printed while using Adobe 8.


      We are trying to automate some tasks for which we require the PDF files to be printed automatically through a DOS command. We are being advised to use Adobe 9 as technical support for Adobe 8 is likely to be withdrawn soon.


      Please can you help.
