AutoMerge: specific settings for plug-in based printing

With AutoMerge for Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 On-Premise/Online, you are able to print the dynamically generated document automatically to a specific printer. Sometimes, the printer settings regarding trays, duplex, size, etc. are not applied if you define them using a specifc user account, because the service runs under different user accounts.
