I've tried:

    winword d:\dev\test3.doc /p
    winword d:\dev\test4.doc /p
in a batch file, but all that happens is that Word opens up the documents

"*Can I print a document using a /p command line switch? *

Printing documents using a command line */p* switch is not supported in Microsoft Word or in Microsoft Word Viewer versions 97 and later versions."

But, you may be able to skin this cat with OpenOffice. According to it's documentation you should be able to do what you want. The website is OpenOffice.org . Documentation is here:
