File created with Live Cycle Designer won't open in LCD.


Level 1

I created a PDF document using LiveCycle Designer, saved it, and the next day tried to open and edit it in LiveCycle Designer and the Splash screen comes on for Live Cycle Designer, then goes away, and the document won't open.

I am using Adobe Acrobat X Pro Version 10.1.1 to launch LiveCycle Designer Operating system Windows 10 with latest updates.

I have reinstalled as administrator but can't seem to get this working. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Also, please let me know if there is a better forum to post this support request.

Thank you,

Yes, there is, but don't repost, I moved your post there: LiveCycle Designer

I was able to workaround!!!  Yay!  Been fighting this for some time. 

The workaround is to locate the LiveCycle Designer application. Found mine here...

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 10.0\Designer 9.0

Then create a shortcut or pin it to the taskbar. Open LiveCycle Designer directly (as opposed to using Acrobat X Pro to edit a pdf.

It then opens just fine.
