I'm not sure this will resolve the problem, but, did you ever try to start through the Windows Services panel instead?
I can't recall how this was related to a particular problem, but I do remember that using the JBoss rervice to start the application, did resolve some issues I had been facing then. I now always use the Services panel, to start the application.
Some further comments/ideas that came up:
1) NFR2 stands for Not For Resale and is NOT related to the problem. It just means that this is either an evaluation or demonstration version as Vs. a licensed production version.

I have done this several times with no problems. Actually, I have always performed LiveCycle installations with admin account "Administrator".
On the other side, Active Directory could be a possible cause for the problem (BTW, as Koward wrote, AD is not initially required).
It is possible that LiveCycle authentication/login, somehow fails to attempt a Windows Integrated Authentication method (which I think is a feature the LiveCycle supports).
Hence, I would try to obtain a Windows admin account of "Administrator", password set to "password", then login into this account, install/run the application from there within, and see what happens...
I have been trying in vane for the past week and a half: installing, un-installing, starting, re-starting and re-booting LC Form Manager with LC WorkFlow and LC Forms, trying different ideas to solve my problem: I can log in to adminui, but never to Workflow Designer. This morning I uninstalled again, and then re-installed again, but this time left LC Forms out of the picture, and voila! I was able to log in to Workflow Designer for the first time. I was able to log in to Workflow Designer using "Administrator" and "password" and also as LDAP users who had been given the Workflow Designer role. It seems that something in LC Forms gets in the way. I am getting a fresh copy of LC Forms to try, in case it was an older release of LC Forms 7.0 I was using, or a bad copy of LC Forms that I was using.
I have always logged in to my workstation as Administrator, and have never had trouble logging in to adminui as "Administrator" with "password". The "known problem" of being unable to log in as "Administrator" when currently logged in to the workstation as "Administrator" has never occurred to me.
It looks like I have finally set up the environment.
It turns out that (IMHO) that the Configuration Manager was the issue. If I run the Configuration Manager and deploy using the turnkey method, I found that I was having problems with the services. I found that if I rebooted my server after deployment and then manually started the services everything seemed to work. I started the services in the following order. MySQL, JBoss for BAM and then Jboss for Workflow. I also allowed ample time between steps before moving onto the next one.
This same problem that was causing me to not be able to log in to the adminui portal was causing me to not be able to login to the Workflow Designer.
