I would at LEAST upgrade to Acrobat 5, if not 6...

Sure, as long as you are willing to live with the requirement
that your users will have to have the FULL Acrobat installed - NOT
just Reader.

If that is an unacceptable requirement, then you'll need to
look at 3rd party libraries and controls...

That is not true at all!! The IAC technology is just COM -
you can use it w/o MFC all you want. Some of the samples are MFC
based, but the technology isn't.

No, the Core API is for plugins.
