No expert but without seeing the original file it's hard to say but start by checking the resolution that you have the driver set to. Also check if the PDF-XChange Viewer is set to Print As Image. When you print to a print driver through Windows the images are sent out as the dpi of the printer driv...

Check out www.xenocode.com and with their Application Studio ISV Version you can wrap it into your exe to prevent problems like this with any ActiveX control. It's not cheap I think around $1500 but we've had good luck with it and it's far cheaper than Thinstall which was bought out by VMWare.
