How can I merge to PDF Files in VB6 using PDFCreator COM?

Here is the code I'm using.  PDFCreator prints files to a PDF so the second file overwrites the first and doesn't combine.  Is there a "Wait" I should put in to pause it in the printer spooler to combine?
With opt
           .AutosaveDirectory = exportpath$ & "\"
           .AutosaveFilename = "ALLSAM.pdf"
           .AutosaveFormat = 0 ' PDF
           .UseAutosave = 1
           .UseAutosaveDirectory = 1
           .AutosaveStartStandardProgram = 0
         
 End With
 Set PDFCreator1.cOptions = opt
 
 Set Printer = Printers(PrinterIndex("PDFCreator"))
        With Printer
            File1 = "C:\data\SAM1.pdf"
            File2 = "C:\data\SAM2.pdf"
            PDFCreator1.cPrintFile (File1)
            PDFCreator1.cPrintFile (File2)
            PDFCreator1.cCombineAll
        End With
        PDFCreator1.cPrinterStop = False

In reading the manual it is a multiple step process to merge them.

FIrst step is to create a queue for the conversion jobs then you can merge them
