Acrobat Reader does not support OLE automation.  See http://support.adobe.com/devsup/devsup.nsf/docs/50709.htm for details.  You have to use the full Acrobat product for this level of access.

The only alternative approach that comes to mind is to test for the existence of a window having a title starting with the text "Acrobat Reader".  The name of the document opened, if any, will be in square brackets in the window title.
