Project Description:
I need an application that runs on a Windows 7 command prompt. It should be executed with this syntax:

makeAcrobatCompare.exe

For example: makeAcrobatCompare.exe C:\path\filename1.pdf C:\path\filename2.pdf 2 c:\outputfolder

0. Open a text log file and save what is being done.
1. Launch Acrobat XI Professional
2. Open the View -> Compare Documents menu option
3. Set Document1 to "c:\path\filename1.pdf". Make a log entry.
4. Set Document2 to "c:\path\filename2.pdf". Make a log entry.
5. Set Document Description to Reports, Presentation, or Scanned based on the argument 1, 2, or 3.
6. Generate the comparison (click OK). Make a log entry.
7. File -> Save As to the c:\outputfolder directory. Make a log entry.
(7a. If there is a prompt, can the program click OK or "clear" the message?)
8. And, if the above process doesn't complete in 10 minutes, kill the process and make an entry in the log.

I believe this can be done using Visual Basic.NET and the Acrobat XI SDK and Interapplication Communication (IAC).
