Greetings,
I am trying to create an application using Acrobat Reader Active X control (pdf42.ocx). But it simply does not want to load the PDF file. I get an error message and my program quits. Any ideas on how to read Adobe PDF files from VB?
Thank you

If you are talking about the Adobe control that can be downloaded from their site. I used this control with success.

The control I used is pdf.ocx (shiped with the Acrobat Reader Version 3.0). You can open the PDF file by use the src property, but if you want use the LoadFile to load the pdf file, "An internal error has occurred." with title "Acrobat plug-in". Hope this helps. BTW, where is your pdf42.ocx come from?

Tahnk you, Mirkwood,
Can you be more specific with the control you are talking about? Is the control in question works with Adore Reader or Adobe Exchange? When I use Active X control used for IE 4.0 I get same message as mentioned by JiaH. I will go to adobe.com now and check what controls they offer.

Please advise.
