Configuration of SAP to use Adobe forms


Hello all,

Lately I've started learning about PDF based print forms and hit first problem related to system configuration. In transaction SFP I've created interface and wanted to create form but after going on layout tab I'm getting error "Could not start Layout Designer". I've found on forum that Adobe livecycle is needed, so I've downloaded from Adobe site trial (60 days) version of "Adobe LiveCycle ES2" and installed it, but I'm still getting this error. I guess something have to be set in system beside this. Question is what?

I'm using SAP trial version with Netweaver 7.2, so another question that came to me is do I need Java stack? I've also CE version of SAP installed on other virtual machine but this is only java and I would like to have both ABAP + JAVA (I'm not familiar yet with working in SAP with only JAVA) and I'm not sure if enhancing ABAP system with JAVA stack is possible on trial system.

It's a little messy post, but I hope you understand what I mean.

Best regards

Marcin Cholewczuk
