Adobe LiveCycle Designer shuts down every time I try to use it...


Former Community Member
Hello all, I want to thank you beforehand for the help regarding this matter. I use Windows Vista and my Adobe LiveCycle Designer was working before but for the last week and a half or so I have not been able to get it to work! I have done scandisk/defrag/and have multiple software to keep my computer clean so I have taken those precautions beforehand. To the problem...:

My Adobe LiveCycle Designer opens up and it was working previously as mentioned, but when I try to open it by either opening or converting a form or creating a new form with a template, I am not able to as it gives me an error message and closes! It gives me an error message of "Adobe LiveCycle Designer ES has stopped working" and a screenshot of this is provided at the following link:


I don't know what to do and wanted to see if I could solve this problem before I was forced to try to manually reinstall it so hopefully I don't have to go through that. I appreciate the help once again!

Hi Shawn, I have this same problem and have not found a resolution yet. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the program, this did not fix the problem.

Please let me know if you have found a way to resolve the problem. Thank you.

Hi Shawn and Jason,

I have the same problem. One workaround is to clean your disk before running LiveCycledesigner. After you have cleaned up your disk LiveCycleDesigner will start a few times and you can work with it.

It is an Vista problem. LiveCycleDesigner 8.1 which is just released had fixed the problem so you can also download 8.1
