If you are willing to code then there's a post halfway down this page that will help you out.  You can use the infopath api to write a custom event handler that will do the conversion for you.  


U can get help regrading how to Add the Form Control to the Visual Studio 2005 Project  in this link http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms406041.aspx
Install 2007 Microsoft Office Add-in: Microsoft Save as PDF or XPS  u can get addin from this link
After adding the FormControl to the windows application  and installing Microsoft Add-in.
This code helps to conver the infopath(*.xml) file to the PDF.
using Microsoft.Office.InfoPath;
using Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.FormControl
// file refers the source file path
// finalFilename is the destination file path
  MessageBox.Show("Confirm of exporting Document" + finalFileName);
 FormControl1.XmlForm.CurrentView.Export(finalFileName + ".pdf", Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.ExportFormat.Pdf)
instead of PDF there are two option available
XPS Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.ExportFormat.Xps
MHT Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.ExportFormat.Xps
