If you install LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2 on the same computer as Microsoft SQL Server 2008, LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2 crashes when launched.
The Microsoft file mfc80u.dll (version 8.0.50727.1833) installed with SQL Server 2008 contains a bug, which causes LiveCycle Designer ES 8.2 to crash when launched.
Download and install the 32-bit version of the executable file vcredist_x86.exe to install a newer version (8.0.50727.3079) of the Microsoft redistributable DLLs including mfc80u.dll.
The download is available at www.adobe.com/support/products/enterprise/support_knowledge_center_livecycle_ES_server.html.
Important Note: Because LiveCycle Designer ES is a 32-bit application, you must install the 32-bit version of the executable file vcredist_x86.exe on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.
