Acrobat XI Pro and LiveCycle Designer

Level 3
Level 3


I currently have Acrobat X Pro  (LiveCycle Designer ES2) installed in my machine and I wanted to install Acrobat XI Pro. However, I read that LiveCycle Designer is not part of the Acrobat XI Pro, and I was advised to uninstall Acrobat X before attempting to install XI Pro. My predicament is that I don't want to lose LiveCycle by uninstalling the Pro X version since the Pro XI does not have it.

I also read that there is a new version of Adobe LiveCycle Designer (ES3), and I'm not sure if this is part of the Acrobat XI license, and if so, how do I get it.. If not, how much does it cost?

I'm kind of confused on what's going on and any help will be appreciated it.

LiveCycle Designer actually gets ununstalled if you install Acrobat 11 over Acrobat 10. If you have the upgrade from Acrobat 10 to 11, you should be eligible to a free upgrade to Designer ES3. For more information, see the following:
