How call Adobe Reader inside an application and avoid operator to open/save and do anything except see the doc

In a Application running on an Automation PC under Windows O.S., let operator to navigate the PDF document open, preventing any interaction with file system (open/save PDF files.. mainly).
How can be implemented using "command line" parameters?

You can use the IAC to do this. Look up the AVDoc.OpenInWindowEx function and one for the browser. Use this function to display a PDF window in a VB application. You can display it without any toolbars or menus, but you can't keep the user from displaying them if they know how, since this is the standard Reader/Acrobat UI.

fwiw —
"command line" parameters

These are all but non-existent for Adobe Reader / Acrobat.

You may want to ask at the Acrobat SDK Forum.
