Problem embedding pdf in HTML.

I am embedding a pdf document in an html page using this syntax:

<object type="application/pdf" data="documents/test.pdf#toolbar=0&navpanes=0&scrollbar=0" width="770" height="1990" >Click <a href="documents/test.pdf#toolbar=0&navpanes=0&scrollbar=0">here</a> to view the file</object>

It works but the options to hide the tool bar, navigation panes, and scroll bar are not used on one of my test workstations and I do not know why.

Using that syntax shows the extra stuff on all boxes.

More info: the problem occurs on Windows 7 in both IE and Firefox. It does not occur in Windows XP on either IE or Firefox.

I have that document and created the URL from the specifications contained within.

The problem seems to be that the browsers on Windows 7 are using a different PDF viewer that is not compatible with or does not understand those parameters. I can't seem to determine what PDF view is  being used.

I figured it out. The box that was not working as desired had Adobe Acrobat 7 installed. The parameters I am using were not implemented until version 8. I installed Reader 9 and the parameters worked.
