It't not quite clear to me what you *want* to do as opposed
to what actually happens when you try. If I understand, you
have a PDF file, and you *want* to output it as a Postscript
file. (And you want to automate that arrangement).
If that's the case, I can think of two approaches, neither using
COM -- which may be a valid third approach. The first is to use
the possibly deprecated Acrobat Reader command-line switches to
print a file and pass a file name. There's some information here:
and if you want to get hold of an older version of Acrobat,
The second is to use ghostscript from
to generate a ps file from a pdf file.
Hope that helps.
