Incompatible LiveCycle Designer Version


Former Community Member
I have Adobe LiveCycle Designer 8.0 installed (came with Adobe Acrobat 8.0 Professional) on my PC. I also have Adobe LiveCycle WorkBench installed on my PC. When I tried to create/open a pdf/xdp file from WorkBench, I got "Incompatible LiveCycle Designer Version" dialog box poped up with the following information:

The active version of LiveCycle Designer is not compatible with this version of WorkBench.

Please lanuch a version of LiveCycle Designer 8.1 or later and make it active, and then try opening your form again.


Plug-in provider: Adobe Systems, Incorporated

Plug-in name: LiveCycle Form Designer

Plug-in ID: com.adobe.designer

Plug-in version: 8.0.3116.1

Can anyone help me how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance!

I have upgraded the Adobe Acrobat Profession v8.0 to v8.1, but the Designer is still version 8.0 and the problem still exists.
