  • There is no PDF control in-box for Windows 8. Windows 8.1 introduces a PDF API.

    You can launch the PDF file to have it open in the user's default PDF reader app. If you want to load it in your own app then search the forum and you'll find a number of threads with recommendations for 3rd party PDF controls to use on Windows 8.

  • Windows 8.1 has APIs for rendering PDFs. Please have a look at the Windows.Data.Pdf namespace

    Build conference session recording available on Channel 9. This details how to use the new PDF rendering APIs. You can find samples for the APIs here.
