Topic: Open all files in one window and this only one file at a time
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 160187

I am working with Adobe Reader 6.0. I have a program that shows a list of PDF-files on one half of the screen and on the other half of the screen the PDF's should be opened in Adobe Reader.
I start Adobe Reader from my program with a command-line statement :
'AcroRd32.exe filename'.
This works fine, but the problem I have is that after 20 files, the user gets the message that the maximum number of files is opened and that they should be closed first.
I don't want the user to do this.
So my questions are :
1) Is it possible to view only one PDF-file
at a time in the same window
(maybe I can do it in my program ? I can
call Windows-API functions like
FindWindow, SetWindowPos, ...) ?
2) I have also tested with Adobe Reader 8.
But each time a new PDF is
opened, this happens in a new window. How
can I open the files in the
same window in Adobe Reader 8 ?

Best Regards,
