You can use one of the sample scripts installed with watchDirectory (v4, also available for v3) to convert .ps (postscript) to .pdf. Now how to get those .ps files....

I believe, if you have a postscript enabled printer (a lot are, and maybe you can just install a postscript printer driver), you can just set it up to "print to file", thereby converting your autocad doc to a *.ps file.

The above mentioned script can be used to convert .ps to .pdf.
