Topic: OLE / IAC Issues With VB
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 55020

I am developing a standalone application in Visual Basic 6 (and yes, I do have the complete Acrobat 4.05 -- not just the reader) and would like to embed PDF files in my app. Using VB's OLE "wizard" resulted in an icon being displayed when the program was run instead of the actual pdf file despite having the correct parameters set to display the file (and when you clicked the icon, the pdf loaded into a separate acrobat reader window anyways -- made me wonder if it had something to do with my registry?). I then resorted to acquiring the Acrobat SDK and started reading about IAC. For a webmaster with little VB experience to begin with, this seemed somewhat intimidating. Basically, i would like a place to start because i am unsure if i am going about this the right way -- any suggestions, or preferably sample code, would be appreciated. Thanks.
