Force PDF to open in browser

I have a web application which creates PDF reports dynamically using ceTe' s PDF Generator.  These PDF's are saved to the server and called with Response.Redirect(HttpContext.Current.Request.ApplicationPath + "/subdir/pdf/" + somename + ".pdf");

It seems that when the user has the full version of Adobe installed the it opens in Adobe Acrobat and if the user has only the reader installed then it opens in Internet Explorer.

Is there a way to force the PDF document to open in the browser?

why don't you have a page to display this pdf always... and do a response.redirect(DisplayArticle.aspx?filePath=HttpContext.Current.Request.ApplicationPath + "/subdir/pdf/" + somename + ".pdf")... in that DisplayArticle.aspx, you can control how to display the pdf file.. probably can have an iframe whose iframe.src = pdf filepath..
