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.

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
  FormControl1.Open(file);
  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
