Does anyone use an ActiveX PDF Reader?

The Adobe ActiveX that is tied to the Internet Explorer OCX is starting to cause failures due to security issues.
Also, it has become very slow at loading, or will not load a PDF at all.

I am looking for a better alternative.

Hi Roger

Sumatra pdf
is an excellent choice

https://www.sumatrapdfreader.org/free-pdf-reader.html

local cSumatra := ".\SumatraPdf.exe"
local cPrinter := "EPSON TM-T20 Receipt" //PrnGetName()
local cFile,cCmd


cFile := cFilePdf


cCmd := cSumatra + ' -Print-to "' + ;
alltrim( StrToken( cPrinter, 1, "," ) ) + ;
'" -exit-on-print ' + cFile
runshell(...)

Hi Roger

Even though SumatraPDF lacks some advanced features like annotation, document signing, and form-filling, Sumatra PDF provides an intuitive and fast reading experience -- it has multiple viewing modes like single page, book, and presentation and shortcuts that help you navigate any PDF file. If you just need to read PDFs for work, consider using SumatraPDF.

Hector -

The website looks a bit unprofessional.
Are you confident that the product is secure?

I downloaded it and it appears that it does not support ActiveX.
There is no OCX and the documentation says nothing about ActiveX.
Also, it doesn't show up in my ActiveX listings after installation.

Do you understand that what I need is an ActiveX viewer?

Roger

Hi Roger
The software is secure, I've used it for over a year for electronic invoices

It's not activex, but it's an excellent solution

Thank you but $2500 is way outside my customer's budget.
All we need is an OCX viewer.

Roger

Trying to get an OCX to evaluate has become really frustrating.

Windows defender won't let me run the installation program for the SoraxSoft demo.
