          Hello Srikanth; I will contact you separately


          For others reading this thread


          Most customers that need to convert an Output Designer IFD form for use with ADEP/LiveCycle Designer have access to Output Designer; the tool that originaly created the IFD files.


          Current version is 5.7; the import feature in ADEP/LiveCycle Designer is the only conversion that Adobe offers.

          The import requires Output Designer to be installed with ADEP/LiveCycle Designer for it to work.


          The product is unfortunately not posted as a trial in a public place. To use the importer a licensed copy of Output Designer 5.7 should used.

          Check around your organization for a copy; check your organizations S/W entitlements in Adobe LWS.

          If you have an old version 5.4 and need 5.7; if you have current Adobe support; request an upgrade to 5.7 from Adobe Customer Care

          The product is still available for sale and as a discounted license upgrade for customers that do not have current support.

          If you have a regular Adobe representative for you account – a trial version can be ordered for you in a pinch – but this may take a while.

          Adobe Partners with appropriate privilages can acess Output Designer 5.7  as a download on the partner portal.
