MBS Plugin with DynaPDF Pro can print a PDF on Windows to a printer.
You decide which printer. For the number of copies I'd have to check.
Email me if you have questions.
Bit of investigation into Autoit might help you here.. can create code which will take parameters so choose the printer and copies you require. And free.
Thanks I'll look into this. I'm already using MBS for this one but I think the DynaPDF may need extra license.
I'll look into this one as well.

Adobe Reader has command line for printto (print with no dialog), parameter %1 for file path, %2 for printer name.
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" /t "%1" "%2" "%3" "%4"
(%3 driver name and %4 port are optional)
There is no parameter for printing options, and you need full path of .exe in "Send Event" command line.
Hi user 19752,
Thanks a heap. That actually worked - what a relief. Sorry for tardiness of reply.
Next challenge - get adobe to go back to the background afterwards (or bring FM to the fore)
Maybe another option to consider to avoid having to open another program and the close it again... A lot of network printers now support dropping a pdf to the printer and it will print it using the default tray.
On windows you run a command like this: copy c:\yourfile.pdf \\server\printername
