Hi,

Ive got a user who has an installation of Adobe Professional 8 on his machine which has been working without a hitch. Has of yesterday, when he laods up Live Cycle Designer, the product starts to load and then just has its about to display the app, the program flicks to Adobe Professional?

Is there a toggle I can switch or something to get the app just to open LiveCycle and not Adobe Professional#?

Thanks

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 - see if you can run it manually from there!

If not, perform a reinstall / repair on the installation and test - let me know if you need the steps!

I have reinstalled prior to posting up on EE. When I launch the app, the splash screen for Adobe LiveCycle is displayed but just as its about to complete its load, it flips over to Adobe Professional.
