Is there anyway to start a saved "Action" in Acrobat Xi from VBA?

In acrobat 9.0  I was able to create a batch process and using send keys (not really happy using sendkeys, but it was the only way I could get this to work),  to kick off a Batch Process.

I can't seem to recreate this in Acrobat 10 and up.  Send keys no longer works as the Tools have no hot keys.

Can I use the SDK to call a previously saved action?

You write plugins in C/C++ and details and samples are in the SDK.

Yes, you can write your plugin to expose various methods that it could be called from VBA.

You can do this from a plugin, but not from VBA.
