Error while launching Workbench ES 8.2 on windows Vista


Former Community Member
I successfully installed Workbench ES 8.2 on windows Vista. When i was trying to launch Workbench it is throwing an error and it does not open workbench.

Error : An error has occurred. See the log file

C:\Program Files\Adobe\LiveCycle ES\Workbench ES\Workbench\workspace\.metadata\.log

I do not even have "\workspace\.metadata\.log" this directory at all.

Please help....

Try to run is as "Administrator".

Righ click on the exe and select "run as administrator".

I ran into that problem too. If "Run as Administrator" doesn't work (I don't think it did for me), re-install Workbench in "C:\Adobe\" NOT "C:\Program Files\Adobe\", which is the default. I think the Program Files folder has some kind of security setting on it that doesn't allow Workbench to add log entries.

Once I did that, I've been able to run Workbench on Vista with little or no issue (even though technically Adobe doesn't support Vista yet).

Hope this helps!
