I want to be able to open a PDF file, in VB 2008 and the file is located at www.ansintech.com
In VB6 it was quite easy:
Set IE = New InternetExplorer
IE.MenuBar = True
IE.Visible = True
IE.ToolBar = True
'IE.MenuBar = False
IE.FullScreen = False
ANSOPEN.WindowState = vbMinimized
IE.Navigate "http://www.ansintech.com/PDF/SOSHELPMENU.html"
Set IE = Nothing
Exit Sub
Now I need to convert the code to run in VB 2008
Can someone help, please.
Thank you
Leonard
