I have seen in various areas of the Adobe website that this is available for purchase as a seperate Enterprise product, but cannot see how to do this. Even downloading a trial at this stage would be very useful to make progress on a project.
"Note: Acrobat Capture and LiveCycle Barcoded Forms Decoder are standalone products appropriate for enterprise workflows and are sold separately from Acrobat."
As background, we are not developing the barcoded form, we will just receive a form which we will scan, extract the data and save it in an XML file.
Any rapid help would be greatly appreciated!
Adobe® LiveCycle® Reader® Extensions ES2 now includes the Barcoded Forms right and you are licensed to install and use the decoder service is part of that purchase. When you install LiveCycle just be sure to select the Barcoded Forms piece which will include the decoder service.
If you'd like to learn more about when it does need to be licensed, take a look at this blog entry: http://blogs.adobe.com/asktheexperts/2009/06/adobe_livecycle_barcoded_forms.html.
