Sure, you download the DWF 6 toolkit from
autodesk.com, and write a viewer around it.  Piece of cake.

Maybe I am missing something here, but you can use
AEV to view DWF files created out of Inventor.  You can also leverage AEV
as a component for your application as well.

Once a DWF file is created, it is a DWF file.
That's the neat thing about DWfs -- it's all in there. No XREFs. No object
enablers. None of that stuff. It's just a file with attributes and geometry. I
would think that AEV could view the DWF file just fine. The toolkit is some C++
code that programmers can use to build applications. As an end user, I don't
think you want that. It is true that DWF files do have versions and older DWF
readers, e.g. WHIP!, can't read them, but for the most part, once you have a DWF
file, AEV should be able to handle it.

I have tried to use the current toolkit with
inventor 7 files and it does not work.  That is the reason I posted this
question if anyone has an idea.

Please be aware that the DWF 6 toolkit has two
components, the "classic" whip toolkit and the new DWF package reader.  If
you previously used whiptk and tried to read inventor files using that, then
yes, it would not work, you need to port to the new paridigm. 
Documentation in the DWF 6 toolkit should help you with your
migration.
