    vb6: open pdf in form using pdf.ocx or acropdf.dll

    machekz

      Hi to all,

       

      I have this kind of problem.

       

      I need to open a pdf in a form, just for reading.

       

      In a couple of threads, I found two ways to make this: using pdf.ocx or acropdf.dll.

       

      In both cases, this solution works for me in debug, but not in deployed release.

       

      I have two kind of problems:

       

      - if the computer where I execute the program HAS NOT Adobe Reader installed, I have an error "missing dependencies" concerning acropdf.dll or pdf.ocx

      - if the computer where I execute the program has Adobe Reader installed, I have an error concerning dll or ocx file version.

       

      How can I solve these problems?

       

      The best would be if I could use one of this components without installing Adobe Reader.

       

      If you need further informations to understand the problem, you can ask me.

       

      Thanks in advance for replies.

       

      Bye

      Nino
