Launching a PDF from a Flash movie

I'm developing a CD that autostarts using an AUTORUN.INF file to launch the Flash executable. It also needs to use the Reader installed on the CD to launch a PDF file from the CD.

Right now only the Flash movie is launching and when it  completes nothing else happens. I need to have it at the very least launch the Start.pdf file and preferably launch the Start.pdf file with the version of Adobe Reader that is on the disk.

Any ideas?

The last frame of the Flash movie reads as follows:

fscommand("exec", "Start.pdf");

The AUTORUN.INF file reads as follows:

; autorun.inf generated by CDEveryWhere 1.2.3, Build 12
open=InstallReader\PC\Acrobat\Reader\AcroRd32.exe Start.pdf
