Do not waste your money on this program. The description says that ViewPDF OCX "is identical to Adobe Acrobats PDF Reader program." and that is exactly the truth. The makers of this software add -nothing- that does not already exist in the PDF Viewer object that is included, for free, with the download of Adobe Acrobat Reader 7. If you are a developer and want to view PDFs in your program, do -not- purchase this software. In your program right click on your toolbar and click "Add/Remove Items". When the window comes up, click on the 'COM Components" tab, then make sure the 'Adobe PDF Reader' box is checked. (The source of this object is the AcroPDF.dll file found in the ActiveX folder of your Acrobat 7.0 folder. If the Adobe PDF Reader object is not available, click 'Browse' and find your AcroPDF.dll file and click 'Open' to add it to your developer.) Once this is done, click 'Ok' and an icon should appear in your toolbar for the PDF Viewer. Simply drag and drop this onto your form like any other object, and you will have a Viewer that does everything ViewPDF OCX does, and you will save yourself from wasting money on this program.

Just a note on CMiner's post: If you want to use the files available with Adobe, you have to have the Full Adobe Product, not just the free Reader. At least, I found this to be the case (from the documentation) when I tried to use it while developing in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 in C#. See below: From the documentation: How can I use Visual Basic .NET or Visual C# .NET with the Acrobat SDK? The Windows version of Acrobat is an OLE automation server. In order to use the OLE objects made available by Acrobat, you must have the full Acrobat product installed on your system and the Acrobat.tlb file included in the project references for your Visual Basic project. This allows you to use the Visual Studio 2005 object browser to browse the OLE objects.
