Is there a manual way to add "Ax*Lib" reference other than the following link suggested ?
The way how to add a "Ax*Lib" reference depends on the type of project.
On a WinForms project:
1. Just open any form class in the designer view.
2. Right-click on the toolbox and select "Choose Items...".
3. Select "Adobe PDF Reader" under "COM Components". (if it is not there, then it is not properly registered in the Registry)
4. Click "OK".
5. Place the new toolbox item on the form.
Now you automatically get the reference to "AxAcroPDFLib".
I have never found an alternative way to add these types of references.
Have something to add?
