Using Adobe SDK without installing Reader or Acrobat

We are trying out the Adobe SDK components in our application to view pdfs. Is it possible to use these without installing Adobe Reader/Acrobat? I would prefer it if I could just register some more Adobe dll's and not require our users to download the Reader before they can view these files. Maybe a third party that someone uses for the same functionality?

No, the SDK is mainly a tool to automate the full version of Acrobat. Some of the routines also work with Reader, but you always need the application to be installed on the machine. There are no DLLs or other components that you can just copy. There are  a number of 3rd party components that can be used to view PDF files. One example is  the component from Glyph&Cog (http://www.glyphandcog.com/).
