    If you want to redistill, then it works from command line only for one file, thats right. You may put it into your file association, then choose your pdf-print-driver as standard and with a right mouseclick in the Explorer on print you can redistill all selected files in a batch.

    If you use:
    acrord32.exe /t "%1" "Acrobat Distiller" "AdobePS Acrobat Distiller" "C:\*.pdf"
    in the file-assocation you can redistill without changing the standardprinter.

    If you often has to redistill the same files you may write a batch like this:

    Redistill.bat

    %comspec% /c
    Start acrord32.exe /t C:\File1.pdf "Acrobat Distiller" "AdobePS Acrobat Distiller" "C:\temp\*.pdf"
    Start acrord32.exe /t C:\File2.pdf "Acrobat Distiller" "AdobePS Acrobat Distiller" "C:\temp\*.pdf"
    ....

    where the standard for /t is: path printername drivername port
    Acrobat Distiller should be set to print to a standard-filename.

    HI, I have tried creating a bat file but I do not have Adobe reader on my PC. I have Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional so when I run the bat file it says it cannot find acrord32.exe or one of its components. Can I use Adobe Acrobat 6.0 Professional or do I have to install the reader?
