Hi All,
We have this problem with printing pdf files from a webpage. There are links on a webpage to pdf files. It should be possible to print the pdf files directly by using "Print Target", but this option prints only a blank page with at the bottom the url printed.
This problem is discussed in MS KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;817454&spid=2073&sid=72

We still have the problems when we perform the actions as stated in this KB article .
It happens within IE6SP1 and IE6SP2.

We really  need this to work, can anyone help us out?

I couldn't get it to work either.

If you just want to print out lots of pdf files linked from a web page then you could try downloading them all to a folder then printing them.

To download them all in one go, you could us any file downloading app (e.g. Go!Zilla (www.gozilla.com)) or the DownThemAll extension in firefox. Either of these apps can be setup to download all .pdf files to a folder. Then select them all in Windows Explorer, right click them and select print.
