PRINT [/D:device] [[drive:][path]filename[...]]

/D:device Specifies a print device.

For example if I have a file in C:\windows called print.txt,

go to cmd and type print http:\\ c:\windows\print.pdf

Where is the pdf document located? That is were I can see you coming up with issues unless it calls up maybe a ftp site.

As a sidenote, Foxit Reader is better for this automated printing. Adobe Reader will print, but will leave its empty window on the screen.
