How to call pdfprint.exe to print PDF files to Windows Printer from PHP source code? How to print PDF files from a web based app?


I am testing your pdf print app for a web based app. I am hoping to use it to print PDF files in a background process on a web server via a shell_exec command from PHP. The problem is, your trial app requires user data entry so I am unable to confirm that it works in my environment. I'd rather not spend the money on the app until I know it works as I need it to. Is there any chance of getting a trial version that does not require a user response? Or is there a workaround of some sort?
