    Sorry, this is a known issue to version 7.x. The commandline printing always force the Reader window to open and cannot kill the precess after print. Our product team is actively looking for a solution for this case.

        Dear DrivveDevelopment,

        As of right now,there is still no new progress about this issue"command line printing release Foxit window" yet. This issue has been reported in our internal bug tracking system with report ID#0061204.You may email to with this report ID#0061204 to track this issue after a period of time.

          This bug has been ignored for a year or more. Clearly nothing will be done. (Reverting this behavior or adding a switch to allow an exit would be what -- an hour's work ?)

          Not at all a fan of having to make sure that all of our systems keep an older, hidden version installed and making sure it never gets updated. This was why we were considering moving from Adobe to Foxit, especially in Dev.

            Having this same problem trying to print pdf documents from within a windows service with the latest version of foxit reader... had to revert back to an earlier version of foxit reader for it work properly.

                  Sorry to inform you that it is still not fixed in the new version 8.3.2, and we plan to improve it in future version 9.1.(We are preparing 9.0 now and it will be available in next month.)
                  Hope it will be fixed as schedule.
