Cannot open form in LifeCycle Designer to edit.

Not applicable
I have created two forms using LC Designer 8. I now need to edit both forms and cannot open them back up to edit!

When I try to open both forms Adobe Professional 8 opens. I then open the form in Adobe Pro 8 and click "edit in designer" and it will not open. I have also tried to open the form directly from my documents in LC Designer and it will not open.

When I try to open LC deigner on its own it will not open - just shoots me straight to Adobe Pro 8.

I need to edit these forms - please help! Thank-you 🙂

Please post the forms, and I'll have a look.

Use a file sharing app like or something similar.

I am also having this problem. It is a dynamic form bound to an XML schema. When I try to reopen it, the livecycle banner comes on, but disappears immediately. The pdf opens in acrobat 9 (a 30-day trial copy). From there, it can be distributed and then filled in.
