    Tvrman, check this link out to see if it offers any help...

    Can you open test.pdf using explorer by clicking on the file name or do you need to start the pdf viewer first?
    If it wont run directly from pocket explorer then your problem could be due to file association in the registry.

    Have you, on your PPC, Adobe reader for PPC?

    I think you must have that to open a file pdf.
