There is also a rundll32 option for profiles:


rundll32 "C:\Program Files\Tracker Software\PDF-XChange 6\DrvUI6.dll",DUI30_Command [/InstallProfile:"<fullpathtoprofile>" | /SetDefProfile:"<profile_name>"] [/PrinterName:"PDF-XChange Standard V6"] [/AsDefault] [/ForUser]


The rundll32 is composed of the following components:


/InstallProfile:"<fullpathtoprofile>", which installs a profile from the path specified. If /AsDefault is specified then the profile will be set as the default profile.

/AsDefault, which is used in conjunction with the /InstallProfile command. If it is specified then the new profile will become the default profile.

/SetDefProfile:"<profile_name>", which sets the profile specified as the default profile. For example: /SetDefProfile:"Current".

/PrinterName, which specifies the printer to which changes are made. If no printer is specified then the default printer will be used.

/ForUser, which changes the profile for only the current user. If this property is not specified then the profile is changed for all users.
