I must compliment you on your embedded AppleScript approach. In Windows, I 
normally use the shell command to open documents. By using shell, it lets 
the OS do the dirty work and simply uses whatever default application is 
defined in the registry for PDF documents. I like it because it is a 
one-liner too.  ;-)

get shell("C:\My Documents\myFavoritePDFdociment.pdf")
