Do you know what file types or extensions you need printed? Here is another...

PDF: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 8.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe /t "C:\filename\toprint.pdf" "printername"

"printername" can be a network printer or local printer name. You can also follow the name with "Drivername" or "portname"

That one should work for most newer versions of reader, just need to locate AcroRd32.exe.

By the way you can just Google what you need to print and you can easily find the command line to print it.
