Live Cycle - ES4 (and 2) stops working


Level 1

Since day or two, when I click preview PDF Adobe LiveCycle stops working. It shuts down with the message as shown here below.


As far as I know I have not changed/ installed/ updated anything....Anyone with a solution/ Idea....? It would help enormously.

1. Check which version of Adobe Reader and Acrobat do you have. The PDF Preview in Live Cycle is generated by Reader or Acrobat.

2. Try disabling the Protected Mode. Protected View feature for PDFs (Windows), Adobe Reader

It had indeed something to do with Acrobat....

I have X and recently DC is released...What i did was, install DC reader and replace this as the standard (instead of X)...

And voila...it is working again...

Many thanks for the tip....
