Topic: Converting Word to PDF using VB

I have searched the board and I know there are a number of topics on this subject, but I'm still not 100% sure of the best method - perhaps someone could give me a definitive answer?
I have Acrobat 6.0 Professional, and I have developed an application in VB6 which generates word documents. I would like to use Acrobat automation/integration to convert/output the Word document into a PDF file.
From my searches of this board I get the impression that this is not possible without a third-party (ActiveX) control of some sort. Surely if I have the full version of Acrobat it must be possible to automate it to convert the Word docs? Having said that, my app is used by a number of clients - if it is indeed possible via Acrobat then I guess that they would also need it to be installed?
Can anyone tell me what my options are please?
Sorry for the long post, and from a newbie as well!! Any help/advice would be much appreciated!
