If you can't find a workaround for the crash, the only other option I can
think of is to launch the PDF in Acrobat Reader:

  put <path_to_my_doc.pdf> into tFilePath
  launch document tFilePath

I have some code for displaying PDF pages in a Rev player, but as far as I
know, the resolution is limited to the screen so I don't think this would be
useful for you for printing.
