Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 133258

I want to add the PDF.OCX version 5.0 control into VC++ project. I did the following.
VC++-->Project-->Add to project--> Components and controls.popedup a dialogbox,selected Registered ActiveX controls, then pdf.

When i do this, i am getting an error "Unable to open this ActiveX control, Make sure the control contains valid type library"
I have un-installed and re-installed the Adobe 5.0 version, i tried even adobe versio 6.0 but the same problem exists.

Using the Class Wizard, add class , from a type library i am able to add. The _DPDF class,PDF.cpp and PDf.h files are added to the application through class wizard. But PDF control is not visible on the VC++ controls which generally will be displayed when a new control is added.

My objective in doing all this is to display a PDF file from VC++ application using PDF.OCX

Can any one please help me in resolving this issue.
