i know, and i have it, but i would like to automate this task (from delphi) one button click, and i get the pdf somewhere.

When printing to the PDF it always ask for the location of the pdf !

Try  

   http://www.synactis.com/products/pdf_delphi.htm

You will find here a delphi component. It's a commercial one, but looks very promising. Maybe this is what you need.

best regards,

In Acrobat, I'm quite sure you can set it up, not to prompt for filename ! (Acrobat 4.0) It might be this is only valid for the Distiler - I'm not sure.
