Opening a PDF file from a projector/SWF?

I have this project that requires opening pdf’s in acrobat reader that needs to be burned on a CD ROM as a self contained EXE. So I am designing this in flash with buttons that will open pdf’s, then I’m exporting this as a swf and importing that into Director and then exporting it as an exe. Why you ask… it seems when I export the flash file as an exe, it needs flash player installed to open the exe. This project needs to be burned on a cd rom and as a stand alone player that will open pdf’s in reader.

So my question; Is there an easier way to do this? and How?
2nd, what is the code to open a pdf file from a flash swf/projector in (A.) Acrobat reader or (B.) explorer.

please help…
