VB Crystal and Adobe

Hi
Hi

I am having a visual basic application and i am using the report designer component of Crystal version 7.0 for reporting.I have adobe as my default printer and i want to print it to a file from my application without it prompting for a name.I was told that there is a ___pdf.ini file which has to be modified so that i will not ask me for a file name.

I am in urgent need to know how it is done.I would appreciate any correct and prompt reply with description of how to go about setting this stuff

The file is \Windows\System\PDFWRITR.INI.

In the [Acrobat PDFWriter] section, simply set the parameter PDFFileName= your file name (ie.  PDFFIleName=myfile.pdf)

The above INI file is for WIN95/98, the WinNT filename is actually _PDF.INI.

Although the ini file names are different, the section and parameters are the same for both.
