I created a form in adobe pro for teachers to input data in order to create an open house card to give to parents. In Pro, I am able to view the QR generated code (their email address or website). I don't want to collect the data for any reason, but so far my understanding is for it to work in Reader (which, let's be honest, most teachers use) I need to run an extension via Live Cycle - which I guess is something major corporations use, not individuals. I've already done the necessary steps in Pro to enable additional features in reader...but the QR code for the card remains a blank square. I'm attaching screen shots for you to understand the simple scope of my project.

Where the QR code is scannable and works just fine.

I've called the sales reps for LiveCycle... and they have not gotten back to me. I'm a simple teacher trying to make something for other teachers to use. Am I missing a key step? If not, does anyone have any idea of the cost of LiveCycle - can the reader extensions be purchased a la carte? I can't even find that information on the web! to reiterate - this form works as designed as long as the end user opens the file in adobe pro. adobe reader renders the file useless for the end user. Help?
