Acrobat Reader 3 under Windows 95/98

I need to print pdf documents from a command line without any user intervention.

So far I've worked out that:

'acrord32.exe /p c:\name.pdf' will print a document but ask for confirmation of print, where as:

'acrord32.exe /p /h c:\name.pdf' will automatically print a document then close said document, but...
it doesn't 'shrink to fit' even if this is previously set, can someone tell me if this is possible and what the other command line switches are.

Thanks,
Antony

Best resource I've found for Adobe Acrobat is Round Table. They've got add-ins for duplexing and special printing requirements for Adobe. You might check their website and see if they have a solution for you...

Here's what I'll do -
Use one of the shareware programs that automatically press keys for you, like "buzof" (http://www.basta.com/Software/SetupBuzof.exe).
