Run acrowrap from an outlook rule

We want to print pdf attachments when they arrive in the in box
Adobe reader will not close after printing.
The best solution that I could find is to install AcroWrap fro BioPDF

we need to run acrowrap from an outlook rule.  
this command line prints the PDF file and then closes Adobe Reader.
how do we run the command from an outlook rule?

There is only one way to run a Command Line from an Outlook Rule.
That is to create a rule that performs a custom action.

However, theres a catch:

A Custom Action in Outlook can only be written by an Outlook / Exchange Developer.

If your that kean, heres a list of some reputable developers.

Otherwise, you might want to consider an alternative 3rd party app to print your attachemnts on arrival

Printing the email attachments in Outlook 2007 can be done by creating a rule and checking the print attachments check box in the print setup dialogue.
We have done this and it works just fine.  The email is also printed, which is OK except for the waste of paper.
The problem is when a pdf file is printed from the print command Adobe Reader does not close after printing.
If we receive 2 emails consecutively someone has to physically close adobe reader before it will accept another print command.
If we use a kill program the timing does not allow the file to print before the reader closes.
If we purchase one of the programs as suggested there is no guarantee that the reader will close after printing.
Acrowrap works from the command line just as it claims to.

 The solution is out there, we just need to launch Acrowrap.exe when we print the attachment.

I tried BlueDevilFan's Print Attachment code and it appears to print consecutive emails without the error. Adobe does not close after printing.
will test it for a day or so...

Although we did not solve the problem of Adobe not closing, the attachments are printed without error by using BlueDevilFan's Print Attachment code.
We do not need to create a custom action at this time
