    Well you can use Shell Execute/Open verb (Process class) to open PDF in external viewer.

    To open it inside a form you can use Adobe PDF Reader ActiveX control.

    Or you can use WebBrowser control to open PDF, which should load PDF ActiveX for you, and enable you to open many different types of files.

    I don't know of any 100% managed control for displaying PDFs.
