Print to PDF file with password via command line


I have an old bespoke application on Windows 2003 Server that needs to be able to print to a pdf file and also encode the pdf file with a user specific password. This may need to be a two step process to allow pdf to a specified queue and file name (print driver and standard windows), and then a separate command line program call to encode the specified pdf file.

The file would then be separately e-mailed to the user who would be able to open the pdf securely upon receipt.

What programs can I use to print the pdf file from the program and also password protect it?

All of this to become part of an automated job on that old system.
