Could you be more specificfo below I am installing LC in windows vista home premium 64 bit
Go to your installation folder (C:\Adobe\LiveCycle8.2\jboss) and copy the file "InstallJBossService.bat" and rename it "UnInstallJBossService.bat".
2.B Change the command line to execute an uninstall by the following: "%LC8DIR%/jboss/JBossService.exe" -uninstall.
I am unable to perform the 2B step
I tried to install LC ES 8.2 on Windows Vista 64-bit Got the same error.
I also tried on VMware with Windows XP SP2 32-bit SCSI Harddrive it hung for few hours.
I found some intresting material @
My understanding from the above link is
Windows 2003 Server SP1 is suggested for LC ES 8.2.1
I will try to install on Windows 2003 Server 32-bit and let you know.
