I would like to be able to run an Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 Batch Process from a shortcut/command line.

So a user does not have to open Acrobat and navigate the menu.
Is this possible?

    Accepted Solution

    No, that's not possible. Adobe does not want you to use Acrobat on a server, or in a server like environment.

    What features do you want to run automatically? There may be other solutions.

    OCR Conversion.

    I was trying to stay away from some of the expensive stuff out there.

    No, unfortunately there is no way around that. Have you looked into the upgrade price for FineReader? You already have an OCR product (Acrobat), so you qualify for the cheaper upgrade price.

    I purchased Nuance ReRite as my solution.
