Windows 7: Automatic Printing?

Printing from BAT file is good. But have you ever print from Task Scheduler? I'm a developer and I ensure you that it is very difficult. The point is that with Task Scheduler you don't have a full user environment and most printers aren't present or are present but unusable (especially virtual printers such as Adobe PDF printer).

FYI, dot matrix printers don't have cartridges...

If you need a PDF printer that sticks through reboot and if no one is logged on you can use DoPDF it works great.

To ManyBeers and everyone else.... I was able to use Task Scheduler to open and print a file every Monday at 5:00 am. Thanks Very Much for all the suggestions - I appreciate it.
