in thread How print doc files in a row

Not sure if that was a typo, but you have some back-slashes missing from your system call, should be:
system("c:\\program\\files\\microsoft\\office\\office10\\winword.exe", + "$file_name", "/q", "/n", "/mFilePrintDefault", "/mFileExit");
One option to stop the windows showing is to run the program with the C API CreateProcess and set the SW_HIDE attribute to the main Window, unfortunately it looks like Win32::Process does not support that.:(

    No, he's trying to escaping spaces. Rather silly, though, since "\ " is the same thing as " ". Good thing, too, since Windows wouldn't understand "\" to mean space.

    If you wanted to hide the Window, you could use Win32::Process's CreateProcess instead of system.
