Adobe LiveCycle opens and closes automatically from Acrobat 9 Pro


Former Community Member

I just upgraded to Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro because I wanted to use the LiveCycle form editor. When I try to open LiveCycle from Acrobat 9 Pro Forms menu tab, LiveCycle opens and then closes instantly.  I tried to open it several times but the same thing happened. Luckily I had an old form which was save as *.xpd which opened LiveCycle.

Does anyone know what the issue is when trying to open LiveCycle from the Adobe 9 Pro Form tab? Thanks in advance.

I can't answer as to why Designer is opening/closing in Acrobat, but you can open it by itself.

The EXE file is located with the Acrobat install.   On my Win 7 its located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Designer 8.2\FormDesigner.exe
