When printing multiple copies of a package, the collate function does not work. It will print x number of the same file, then move on to the next. It will not pint the whole package in order multiple times. I have forced the Host collate in the registry but it still does not work.

PDF Packages print documents as if you are viewing each document separately and printing separate documents. If you want to collate all pages in a PDF for multiple copies, use the Combine Files feature in Acrobat and combine files into a single PDF (presuming you don't have secured PDFs, Adobe Designer files, files with digital signatures, or forms with the same field names). If using one of these files, you have to painstakingly print and hand collate.
