I'm working on a project that requires us to send PDFs to a printing press. We've previously done this with a desktop app and Acrobat, but I'd like to switch to an ASP.Net app to give us more flexibility on what device the end user is using (there will likely only be one user at any given time).
Following something similar to this MS KB article is working well for sending the PDFs - the printer prints the documents, decent quality, etc.
The only issue I've found though, is that our files may require different printer configurations - e.g. one may need to be booklet folded, while the next may not. Previously we had set these up in preconfigured drivers (i.e. "MyPrinter1" is set to booklet folded, "MyPrinter2" is not - both point to the same physical printer). Sending the raw data, however, seems to ignore these. I'm assuming it's due to some header data not being included, or something similar; but I haven't found any info on how to include it.
I'm open to other methods. I've tried GhostScript, but it threw errors about the files. PDFSharp seems to work fine locally or while logged in to the web server, but doesn't do anything when logged out (not even an error message; assuming this is Adobe more than PDFSharp). I'm potentially open to a paid option, but would (obviously) prefer free.</div
