In my application I'm trying to preview a PDF file in a thumbnail.
What component allows this in the lower left-hand corner of the windows explorer.
I've attached a example.

There's an ActiveX that comes with the reader...
Project >> Components
- Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Browser Control Type Library
AcroPDF1.src = "myfile.pdf"
Browse a little to take off the toolbars and stuff

I'm using the Adobe reader control, but I was also try to provide a thumbnail.

Since if reader is not installed, the thumbnails are not there...
i really think what windows use this, or some type library from Adobe to read the file and show it, but in a smaller scale, which you can do too...

The reader is installed. I'm using the acropdf.dll .
I think the component that has the ability to preview pdf's is the webvw.dll .
