I have a requirement in which I need to display a PDF file into the application. We have third party libraries for performing the same.
I would like to know if I can have an embedded display of PDF in the application or will I need to start and external PDF viewer for the same.
You can use "poppler":http://poppler.freedesktop.org for PDF rendering in a Qt application
I have one more query.
Do we get the embedded pdf file display or it opens another window to display the pdf.
That's up to you
@SGalst: Thanks for the info.
Is there any way to check if adobe reader in installed in the system using qt.
You can try calling the system command "which" with the name of the executable. Or if it should be installed in a known fixed place, use QFile::exists

As in the current situation if we specify a particular path it will be different for different version of Adobe Reader, I would like to know if there is a generic way to implement this across various platforms.
That is so OS even distribution specific, I can't tell

That depends on what facilities the third party library you already have provides. Since you don't name it we have no idea how it might be able to render on a Qt widget.
