From where can I get / download the Adobe Reader Extension Server 7.0
I tried on "http://www.adobe.com/products/server/readerextensions/main.html" link also, but there it does not give any link for download.
You cannot download a trial version of LiveCycle Reader Extensions.
The easiest way to get started with LC Reader Extensions is to join the Adobe Enterprise Developer Program. When you join the program, you get access to LiveCycle software, including Reader Extensions, as well as developer support (via email) for 1 year.
For more information about the program, head to http://partners.adobe.com/public/asn/developer/detail_edp.html To join the program, purchase it through the online store at http://store.adobe.com/store/products/master.jhtml?id=catEnterpriseDe veloper
If you have questions about the program, I'm more than happy to answer them.
I just want to be clear. If my organization paid for the developer program, as you stated. We would then be able to load the LiveCycle Reader Extensions that would allow our customers that have Adobe Reader to electronically sign and save the documents that we send them?
John, if you're part of the program you get developer licenses for the LiveCycle products (among the other things) which you can use in your development. Should you decide to go to production using any of the LiveCycle products you still need to purchase a normal production license for that. But yes, if you did that, then your customers would be able to sign and save the documents using Reader.
Sorry to be thick-headed.
My organization owns Professional 6. We want to be able to send PDF via e-mail to outside partners, allow them to fill-in, etc, and save to their local disk, and e-mail completed form back to us. We are NOT members of the developer program, and we DO intend on using the forms in production. Are the Reader Extensions free of charge to us? What do you think is the most direct path to get us there and what components do we need? Which components are free and which are licensed? We are looking at only one forms developer at this time.
Basically no components are free. Reader Extensions is a product and if you want to use you have to pay for it. If you want your client to be able to save the PDF locally and they are using reader then the PDF needs to be extended. If you want your client only to be able to fill in the form and email you the data (without being able to save it locally) then nothing extra is needed.
We use Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional at work. I have to create a form that can be save locally by a client and emailed to us. It works fine with 7.0 pro but when I try to use it with older versions, these option are not available. Can I install the livecycle reader extensions without the need to install additional software? And if so, which ones? 8.0 professional or just livecycle? or both?
I have a form that I built in LiveCycle. The form has a place for the user to upload attachments. Does the form need to be reader extended for the user to attach a file? Is there a way to do this with Adobe Pro? Thanks.
