    PDF embed to exe file like an image!


    Hi Friends!
    I want to embed a PDF file into my EXE Delphi application.
    NOTICE: I don't want load a PDF file from my hard disk, I want the PDF file to be embedded into my EXE file like a image or WAV file because the PDF file is copy righted and the user shouldn't be able to save it.
    Users should be able to search through the PDF file.
    I know about Acrobat Reader Active X and also some other components like Gnostice PDFtoolkit VCL, XpdfViewer Activex, eXPert PDF ViewerX but the problem is that all of these components load PDF from hard disk and can't embed a PDF file into EXE Delphi application.


    Any Ideas? Thanks!

    Why does it have to be a PDF?
    How are you going to view it?
    How are you going to prevent anyone from, at least, taking a screen shot of your copyrighted material?

    They should be PDF because they are PDF books, they also need to be searchable so again They should be PDF.

    lets say I want to view them using an active X like Acrobat reader active X or something else (Print & Save as function would be disabled).

    I can't prevent users taking a screen shot, however I don't care that much.

    Thanks!
