Programmatically displaying a PDF using Adobe Reader on Windows Phone 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am creating a Windows Phone 7 app in which I'd like to provide a link to a (local) pdf file for viewing.  I have written the pdf file to the isolated storage, but on a device with the Adobe Reader installed, Reader doesn't start if I click on a link that points to the file.  Is there a way to invoke Reader somehow?  It doesn't have to be from the webBrowser control; it would be better if it could be called from C#.

    I am not sure where to post this question; could someone help me out?
