Print PDF files quietly via Browser...

I'm trying to use the Adobe Acroreader as a helper app from the Browser to print pdf files QUIETLY without requiring any intervention from the user.  

Here's the scenerio:
1. User types in my URL and my CGI or NSAPI will send the pdf file to the users browser.
2. The users browser will configure the Acroreader as a helper app to be launch when it detects a pdf file.
3. I ONLY want the Acroreader just to print the pdf file 100% quiet to the default printer and not do anything else.

I noticed by adding the /p command line option to the Acroreader app, it will print the pdf file instead of launching/displaying the pdf file in the viewer (ie. acroeader.exe /p xxx.pdf).  The problem is that eventhough a /p will print the pdf file, Acroreader still launches a print dialog prompting the user for print options.  So this is not totally 100% quiet.  I want Acroreader just print the pdf file to the default printer as a background process without any requiring any intervention from a user.

So the question is, what can I do to make Acroreader to do this? Are there any other command line options I can add to Acreoreader to do this?  If not, are there other applications that I can buy to be used as a helper app and have the capability to print pdf files 100 quiet?

Use ghostscript instead of acroreader.
