        If PrinterName.Trim.Length = 0 Then
            PrinterName = (New System.Drawing.Printing.PrinterSettings).PrinterName
        End If

        Dim Proc AS New System.Diagnostics.Process

        Proc.EnableRaisingEvents = True
        Proc.StartInfo.FileName = PDFFile
        Proc.StartInfo.Arguments = Chr(34) + PrinterName + Chr(34)
        Proc.StartInfo.Verb = "PrintTo"
        Proc.StartInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Minimized
        Proc.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = True

        ' Now start monitoring the printer's queue.
        Dim Monitor As New PrinterQueueWatch.PrinterMonitorComponent
        Monitor.MonitorJobAddedEvent = False
        Monitor.MonitorJobDeletedEvent = False
        Monitor.MonitorJobSetEvent = True
        Monitor.MonitorJobWrittenEvent = False
        Monitor.MonitorPrinterChangeEvent = False
        AddHandler Monitor.JobSet, AddressOf SetPrintJob
        Monitor.DeviceName = PrinterName

        ' Now that I am watching, start up Acrobat.
        Proc.Start()

        Do While Timeout > 0 AndAlso Not Proc.HasExited
            System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(1000)
            Timeout -= 1
        Loop

        ' Stop monitoring.
        RemoveHandler Monitor.JobSet, AddressOf SetPrintJob
        Monitor = Nothing

        If Not Proc.HasExited Then
            Debug.Print("Killing process")
            Proc.Kill()
        End If

        Debug.WriteLine("Closing process")
        Proc.Close()

        Return 0
    End Function
    Public Function PrintPDF(ByVal PDFFile As String) As Integer
        Return PrintPDF(PDFFile, "", 60)
    End Function
    Public Function PrintPDF(ByVal PDFFile As String, ByVal Timeout As Integer) As Integer
        Return PrintPDF(PDFFile, "", Timeout)
    End Function

    Private Sub SetPrintJob(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
        ' Print job is set to print.

AddHandler Monitor.JobSet, AddressOf SetPrintJob

==>

Monitor.JobSet += new EventHandler(SetPrintJob);
And the implement the "SetPrintJob"..

----

RemoveHandler Monitor.JobSet, AddressOf SetPrintJob

==>

Monitor.JobSet -= SetPrintJob;

Hope it helps

Something like this.. :-)

Private SetPrintJob(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
        //Print job is set to print.
        System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(500);
        Proc.Kill();
}

But my compiler (VS2005) say to me that
the function of the class has to have a return type...

You need to add 'void' after private..

private void SetPrintJob(object sender, EventArgs e)
