I'm looking for a component to display PDF documents that not requieres Adobe reader be installed.
For security reasons the PCs running my application should not have any 3th party installed.
Any suggestion?
Best Regards

Thank you Quentin!
I used the lite version of the library and it has no method to just display a PDF file.
From their documentation
ActiveX
This function is not available in the ActiveX edition
DLL
This function is not available in the DLL edition

Thank you Girish, but It is a little to much, I just want to to view an already existing PDF file with no editing at all.

Yeah I wanted to do the same and the price drove me away.
But, I found the same case with every package I found.
