_FilePrint and printing PDF's

Recommended Posts


I have a script that takes documents that have been scanned to a PDF and then prints them using _FilePrint. The only problem is that it always prints in Letter size, even if the PDF is Legal, 11x17, etc. etc.

I did some farting around and am able to get around this by using the /t switch and Acrobat Reader, as the Reader has an option for choosing paper size based on the the PDF page size (although for the life of me I can't figure out where this setting is stored, but Reader will default to it). But, I really do not want my script to be dependent on having Adobe Reader installed.

So I'm wondering if there's a way to accomplish this without having a program installed on the host machine. Including a standalone .EXE with my script would be fine, but I can't find a free one that suits these needs.

Any ideas?

Thanks a bunch.
