Did you try

WebBrowser1.Navigate("\\server\folder name$\file.pdf")
?

It will work with the "OpenFileDialog1.FileName"
"U:\PDFProject\File\Manual abc.pdf"

but not with my filelocation on a hidden share:
"\\servername\pdftemp$\User name\Office Manual abc.pdf"

The difference must be in the fileurl dimension:

 '{file:///U:/PDFProject/File/Manual abc.pdf%23toolbar=0&navpanes=0}

 '{file://server/pdftemp$/User Name/Manual abc.pdf%23toolbar=0&navpanes=0}

whats the problem with the url? could it be that the "\\" "//" at the beginning makes some troubles?

I think it could be the $ sign. Does it work if you replace $ with %24 ? Also try matching the ///.
