If we really need to go down that road (which I hope not) I recommend we use 
python instead.

two solutions:


We can let  acroread which should work better then doing it from a batch file
There are a few solutions to be found:

2.) use gsprint.exe

I vote for using gsprint.exe as the default method. We might want to check if 
we are on Windows and if so we could bypass calling gm-print_doc.bat (which

This might even allow to address different paper trays.
