What kind of interface are you using to do this? Do you want the printing 
done locally (i.e. the user has access to the windows shell and can 
right-click files in a directory to print them), or do you want this done 
through a browser interface?

I don't know of any off-the shelf software to do this, but this task sounds 
like it would be best served with a simple VB program. All you need is a 
dialogue to select the files, then pass them one at a time to the print queue.

Have you tried just using the find files utility in windows, then doing 
select-all, print?
