I am writing a Windows Phone 7 application and want to create a PDF help file that would be part of the application files.  I am having no luck finding information on how to open a physical file that is in the root folder of my application... Basicaly I want to click a button and the file will open... Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Greg

you can have a link to an external pdf and make the user download it. Assuming they adobe installed they can read it locally.

Not so simple. You probably have to make a webpage pointing to a local pdf.
