I am having a problem converting a Word 2010 document using Live
Cycle Designer ES2. I get the following
Word (version XP onwards) could not be found
Word 2010 is installed.
I have just run into this issue myself. At first I thought it might be that LiveCycle is not yet fully compatible with Office 2010 but after doing some googling it seems there are plenty of folks out there successfully converting Word 2010 documents to PDF.
As a temporary workaround, you could try a copy of an earlier version of Word should one be available to you.
If I'm able to find a solution to the issue, I'll let you know promptly.

I haven't found an actual "solution" to this issue just yet but I did find a workaround that at least gets us halfway there. It appears that PDF conversion of Word documents is now built-in with Word 2010. You can simply save out any Word document as a PDF and it'll do the conversion for you. What this does NOT do for us, however, is generate editable fields on the resulting PDF.
I'll keep looking into it.
