How can I print a PDF to a printer without Acrobat Reader from a .NET Windows application (Windows Service actually)? Ideally I'm looking for a free or open source library that lets me print without any user interaction.

The best one i've found so far is PDFCrator.
Open source, works fine on XP and Vista and my company has been using it since 3 years over 150 workstation without any problem.

all_experts, verypdf looks promising. I am looking to see if they have an SDK.

Davesti, I don't want to create a PDF, but print an existing one to a printer.

Would have preferred free/open source, but this works.
