Hi Sam,

I believe you could use the same ActiveX control that IE uses to display PDF
documents (this one is most likely installed when you install Acrobat
Reader). The only difficulty I foresee is locating a DLL or an EXE
containing this control to derive an Interop library - but I hope this
control has proper COM categories to be visible in the list of available COM
references.

Hi Dim,

Why not just run IE (System.Diagnostics namespace) from inside vb .net to
use its services?

Hi Bernie,

I think we should ask the original poster about that :-) As for me, I would
probably hate if the program would have to launch IE just to display a PDF
document. Adobe Acrobat Reader would be more natural, but still, if one can
embed it as an ActiveX, why launch a yet another process?
