PDF Printing from AcroRd32 - Silent Print.

I am using the freely available AcroRd32 Active X object in a form to display some PDF files in my application.  There is a list of PDF files that may be selected on the left and the selected PDF is displayed on the right in the Active X control.  The user may choose to print a range of these PDF files but the code that I have written (which seemed to be straight forward) is not working correctly.  If I just use the Print function of the object, I get the Adobe Print Dialog box.  If I use the PrintAll function, the Adobe Reader window pops  up and the User has to close it.  Both of these are unacceptable.  

How can I print the PDF documents, one after the other, silently without any user interaction.  I want to print to the default printer using default settings at this point.

Furthermore, how can I apply a PrinterSettings object to the PDF print job, or is this possible?  Thanks in advance.

i didn't try or use any of the suggested programs/libraries...

pdfcreator is an opensource software which integrates as a windows printer. they provide an activex library:
http://www.pdfforge.org/products/fly2pdf

foxit pdfreader is a free pdf reader. they have some sdks for working with pdfs:

but, as i said, i don't know if there is a window for user interactions.
with a quick look, the activex from pdfforge could be the right choice.
