I had this question after viewing PDFTK - filling this PDF but got an error.

After talking with the others on this project, we decided it's ok to have the final PDF as read-only and it doesn't need to be editable.

I ran the commands below I can populate the PDF but not the checkbox. Joe (if you're reading this) this because of the LiveCycle issue that the checkboxes don't get checked?  If it is, I got approval to buy LiveCycle. I'll get it and see what's going on.

I tried "No" for value, "On", "1" but I don't see the checkbox checked.

1. i-765 is the orig file

2. notsigned.pdf is the file I QPDF-ed to get rid of the password error message

3. Ran this pdftk.exe notsigned.pdf fill_form i-765.txt output OutputFilled.pdf

4. outputfilled.pdf is the populated PDF.
