Error popup saying, "Could not start Layout Designer"

Hi Experts,

I am trying to navigate to the layout tab of the form that I had created. When I click on the tab I get an error popup saying, u201CCould not start Layout Designeru201D & it then takes me back to the SAP Easy Access Screen. Below is the info from the long text.

u201CCould not start Layout Designer (see long text)

Message no. FPUIFB086

Diagnosis

The forms design tool for developing the form layout could not be started; either it is not installed or there are errors in the installation.

Procedure

Make sure that you have the forms design tool installed on your desktop (the tool is part of the SAPGUI installation).

Also read SAP Note 801524.u201D

Am currently making use of SAP_BASIS release 700 with a level of 13 & my GUI is 710 Final Release. My Adobe Reader version is 8.1.0 .Could anyone suggest me as to what I need to get installed to help resolve my problem? I went through the SAP Front End Installation guide for 6.40 and it says, u201CThe Forms Design Tool is no longer available with the current version of the SAP GUI CD. For more information, see SAP Note 801524u201D.

Regards,

Uday

    Hi Thoshin/Chintan can anyone of you please tell me if the Adobe LifeCycle Designer software is a part of the SAP GUI setup 710 Final Release? I had spoke with the IT people here and they said like they had done a complete install of the GUI with all its components & that it can't miss out if it were a part of the GUI setup. I found the SAP NetWeaver 2004s Installation Guide for SAP Front End 6.40 on SDN and it says (on page 45) that, "The Forms Design Tool is no longer available with the current version of the SAP GUI CD. For more information, see SAP Note 801524."

    [Link On SDN|https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/f01983f1-624e-2a10-dea7-a256b711469e]

    So is it also the same with the 710 release? If yes then can anyone help me as to how I can obtain just the Adobe LifeCycle Designer software. I dont have access to the market place.

    Regards,

    Uday

    Hi

    Please install the Adobe LifeCycle Designer from the CD from which you installed the SAP GUI 710.

      Hi Uday

      The lifecycle designer setup is on the SAP CD which is used to install the SAPGUI 710. If i remember correctly its the first folder on the root of the cd 😊
