full viewing/control can only be done with the ACROBAT.TLB Object Type
Library, this file is only licensed (and distributed) with the full version
of Acrobat. (see SDK - Samples>VBOIW VB Open in Window example code/app).

There is another control used for Internet Explorer - PDF.OCX, this is
distributed with Acrobat Reader, it will work for what you want, but it's
NOT supported by Adobe - nor is it documented!

If you reference the PDF.ocx file from your VB App, you will be able to take
advantage of some of the functionality, but beware, Adobe may change
functions, methods later on rendering your app possibly useless .
