Using Adobe Acrobat Reader Active X (version 9) in Delphi

I am using Delphi 2010 and i would like to display a PDF document.

I would like to try and use Acrobat Reader as an Active X but I am not sure of which ocx to import and where is can be found.

Any tips would be apreciated!

In the following link you will see how to install your ActiveX component in your delphi

i know how to do that... what i mean is that there is not Adobe Reader Active X already installed... and when i try to install AcroPDF.DLL is get an error.

On my PC, the path that Delphi has for the ActiveX control is wrong, for Adobe 9, I import C:\Program Files\Adobe\Reader 9.0\Reader\AcroRd32.dll

Whoops, sorry, I mean I imported it from:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Acrobat\ActiveX

hej thanks... i have tried that already but i get an error message something like "failed to register ole object" (its in swedish).  

Could it be Win7 64 problems?

Yep, looks like they don't support 64...
