Detect Acrobat Reader Plugin

Hello misters,

I have a ASPX that contains an IFrame to display a PDF file.

Like this:

<iframe src="/Files/MyPDF.pdf"></iframe>

I have an problem about it, if an user hasn't installed Acrobat Reader
Plugin. In that case, the IExplorer shows an popup window with this message:
"File Download....".

Any solution ? Any help, please ?

Perhaps if I detect Acrobat plugin with javascript or vbscript...??

Thanks, regards...

Here is a web site that detects Adodbe Acrobat, among other things.
Maybe if you look around a bit you can see an explanation of how it's
done.
