Auto print PDF files from drop folder

We are having difficulty with an auto print solution for PDF files.  We have a shared folder on a windows 2008 server where users drop large PDF files into.  We have used several programs in the past to watch that folder and automatically print the pages.  However about 10% of the files always print with errors.  However when the users print them manually to the same printer they come out fine.  Programs we have already tried include:

AcroTeX PDF Print Monitor
WatchDirectory
CoolUtils Total Folder Monitor

The PDFs are generated in various versions of the Adobe suite applications.  What is the best method to accomplish this?

I would try AutoIT. Very straight forward scripting tool that can watch the folder, send to print, etc..

Iammontoya - that had the same 90% success rate as our other program attempts.

We think that the document contains data that the printer can't parse natively whereas it's not a problem when printing locally as Adboe itself does the render which is why we only have a 90% success rate.  Are you aware of any methods to have an Adobe product itself monitor a folder and print contents (either on a PC or Mac) that may get around this issue.
