Printing PDF's from delphi app WITHOUT viewing them 1st

I need an existing delphi application to print pdf files that reference an fdf file WITHOUT viewing the pdf in a third party reader such as Adobe Acrobat Reader on a windows platform. I am not a Delphi developer however I am researching this for a developer. Right now the Adobe reader is embedded in our application but we have issues with  it. We want to get away from depending on an third party element within our app. For example ... in windows if you right click on the pdf file and select print it opens adobe minimized on the task bar but not the pdf file itself which is acceptable. But it also still pulls in the fdf field values that fills out the form....so even though I didn't open the pdf directly it still pulled the field values and printed the form filled out with those values. If possible I need confirmation that this can or cannot be done. If it can I need code examples. TIA!
