INSTALLING ADOBE LIVECYCLE WORKBENCH 11
Before You Install
Note: If all of these locations reside on a single drive, there must be 1.5 GB of space available during installation. The
files copied to the temporary directories are deleted when installation is complete.
• Hardware requirement: Intel® Pentium® 4 or AMD equivalent, 1 GHz processor.
• Download and install the latest version of Adobe AIR (from http://www.adobe.com) required for Community Help
Client, integrated with Workbench.
• Java™ Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.0 update 22 or later updates to 6.0 *New for 10*
• Minimum1024 X 768 pixels or greater monitor resolution with 16-bit color or higher
• TCP/IPv4 or TCP/IPv6 network connection to the LiveCycle server
Note: If you have Adobe® Acrobat® X installed on your machine, ensure that you uninstall it before installing Workbench.
You can reinstall Acrobat after installing Workbench.
Note: You must have Administrative privileges to install Workbench. If you are installing using a non-administrator
account, the installer will prompt you for the credentials for an appropriate account.
Designer
The following minimum requirements are necessary to take advantage of the latest Designer features.
• A minimum of Acrobat X Pro Extended is required to benefit from all the new features in Designer 11.
• Adobe® Flash® Player 10.2 or later.
• (Optional) Adobe® Flash® Builder™ 4.5 or later.
• (Optional) Adobe® Flex® 4 SDK (required for customizing form guide (deprecated) components that are shipped
with Designer).
Note: Use the Flex 4 SDK included with the Designer installer only. Do not use any version of Flex SDK obtained from
the Adobe web site.
2.2.2 Supported platforms
See the complete list of supported platforms for Workbench at Adobe LiveCycle ES4 Supported Platforms.
2.3 Upgrade considerations
The Workbench installer creates new directories and installs all new files, which allows Workbench to co-exist on the
same machine with an existing Workbench installation. Upgrading your LiveCycle 8.2.x and LiveCycle 9.x processes
to LiveCycle is supported and will run as expected on your upgraded LiveCycle server. However, these processes and
their dependent assets have to be upgraded before they can be deployed. (See “3.2 Upgrading processes” on page 6)
Once you have determined that your Workbench installation is running properly, you can uninstall Workbench. (See
“3.8 Uninstalling Workbench” on page 9)
2.4 Designer installation considerations
By default, the Workbench installation includes a corresponding English-only version of Designer. If the Workbench
installation application detects an existing version of Designer on your computer, the installation may terminate and
you will be required to remove the current version of Designer before you can continue.

3.2 Upgrading processes
LiveCycle ES Update 1 and LiveCycle ES2 processes can be upgraded to LiveCycle ES4 applications using the Upgrade
Wizard. See Upgrading legacy artifacts for more information.
3.3 Installing the Workbench Eclipse feature
You can optionally add the Workbench feature to Eclipse. You can add Workbench after you have installed
Workbench. For example, for JBoss the following location contains the file:
•
Workbench_DVD/additional/eclipse
Download and install Eclipse 3.6 from www.eclipse.org/downloads/.
3.3.1 Configuring Eclipse update feature for Workbench
Workbench supports the update feature to ensure you are using the most updated Eclipse version. However, you must
ensure that certain additional modules are included with each download:
Eclipse Version
Workbench required modules
Eclipse 3.6.x
•
Graphical Editing Framework GEF [org.eclipse.gef.feature.group]: This is contained
in the 'Graphical Modeling Framework SDK' [org.eclipse.gmf.sdk.feature.group]
•
WST XML Core [org.eclipse.wst.xml_core.feature.feature.group]: This is contained
in the 'Eclipse XML Editors and Tools'
[org.eclipse.wst.xml_ui.feature.feature.group]
•
Plug-in 'org.apache.commons.lang_2.3.0' [n/a]: This is contained in the 'Mylyn Task
List (Required)' [org.eclipse.mylyn_feature.feature.group]
3.3.1.1 To install and deploy the Workbench feature to Eclipse:
1 Start Eclipse.
2 Select Help > Install New Software, click Add to open the Add Repository dialog.
3 On the Add Repository dialog, click Local and browse to the directory where the Workbench installation saved the
plug-in ZIP file, select workbench-updatesite.zip, and then click Open.
4 Follow the instructions on the subsequent screens to deploy the Workbench feature to Eclipse.
Note: Ignore the message "Warning: You are about to install an unsigned feature,” and click Install to continue.
The Adobe LiveCycle Discovery Plug-in for Flash Builder enables you to quickly build Adobe Flex and AIR
applications that invoke a service that is part of LiveCycle through its remoting endpoints. Information about how to
install and update the plug-in is available on the Adobe web site at www.adobe.com/go/learn_flex4_sdp_en.
3.4 Configuring and logging in to a server
To use Workbench, you must have an instance of LiveCycle running, typically on a separate computer. You must have
a user name and password to log in to LiveCycle , as well as details about the location of the server.

Installing Workbench
Note: If you configured LiveCycle to use the EMC Documentum or IBM FileNet repository provider and you want to log
in to a repository other than the repository that is configured as the default in LiveCycle Administration Console, provide
the user name as [email protected]
3.5 Configuring time-out settings
By default, Workbench times out after two hours, regardless of activity or inactivity. To edit the time-out setting, see
“Configuring User Management > Configure advanced system attributes” in the Administration Console Help.
3.6 Configuring Workbench to connect over HTTPS
To connect Workbench to a LiveCycle server over HTTPS, you must ensure that the certificate authority (CA) that
issued the public key will be recognized as being trusted by Workbench. If the certificate is not recognized as coming
from a trusted source, you must update the cacert file located in the [Workbench_HOME]/jre/lib/security directory.
Note: [Workbench_HOME] represents the directory where you installed Workbench. The default location is C:\Program
Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe LiveCycle Workbench ES4\workbench.
Ensure that you connect to HTTPS by using the name that is specified in the certificate. This name is typically the fully
qualified host name.
3.6.1 To update the cacert file:
1 Ensure that you have a copy of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate. Either contact the administrator who
configured the SSL server or export the certificate by using a web browser.
To export the certificate, open a web browser and log in to Administration Console, install the certificate in the
browser, then export the certificate from the browser to a temporary storage location (or directly to the
[Workbench_HOME]/jre/lib/security directory).
2 Copy the certificate to the [Workbench_HOME]/jre/lib/security directory.
3 Open a command prompt window, navigate to [Workbench_HOME]/jre/bin, and then type the following
command:
keytool -import -storepass changeit -file
[Workbench_HOME]\jre\lib\security\ssl_cert_for_certname.cer -keystore
[Workbench_HOME]\jre\lib\security\cacerts -alias example
where:
• changeit is the default password to the cacerts keystore.
• certname is the certificate you selected in step 1.
• example is the alias you choose for the certificate. This value can be changed.
4 When prompted to trust the certificate, type Yes and hit the Enter key. The keytool proceeds to import the cacerts
file in to the [Workbench_HOME]/jre/lib/security directory.
5 Close and restart Workbench for the changes to take affect.

3.7 Configuring cache settings for dynamically
generated templates
The following aspects of cache operation should be considered if your application generates unique templates on the
fly by automatically updating XFA content. In effect, each transaction uses a new, unique template.
When Adobe® LiveCycle® Forms Standard 11 or Adobe® LiveCycle® Output 11 searches for, or updates, entries in the
cache for a specific form template, it uses several key values to locate the specific cache entry that will be accessed.
• Template file name: The location and filename of the template used as the primary unique identifier of the cached form.
• Timestamp: The template file contains a timestamp used to determine the last update time of the form.
• Template UUID: Designer inserts in each template a unique identifier (UUID) for the form and its version. Each
time the form is updated, the embedded UUID is updated. For example, an XDP template might show the following
content:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xfa generator="AdobeLiveCycleDesignerES_V8.2"
APIVersion="2.6.7185.0"?><xdp:xdp xmlns:xdp=http://ns.adobe.com/xdp/
timeStamp="2008-07-29T21:22:12Z"
uuid="823e538f-ff6c-4961-b759-f7626978a223"><template
xmlns="http://www.xfa.org/schema/xfa-template/2.6/">
• Render options: Within the rendered form cache, the cache contents are stored separately for each set of unique
render options.
The Forms service receives templates by reference to filename or repository location, or by value as a XML object in
memory.
• Templates passed by reference: Uses the content root and the form name. If unique templates with different
filenames are passed in every request using this method, the disk cache will grow endlessly and will never be reused.
To prevent this, unique templates should be passed with same filename to ensure that same cache is updated for all
requests.
• Templates passed by value: Uses template bytes passed along with the data using theinDataDoc parameter. If
unique templates with different UUID are passed using this method, the disk cache will grow endlessly and will
never be reused. To prevent this, the UUID attribute should be stripped from all templates to ensure that no cache
is created for the template. Alternatively, passing the same non-null UUID allows the cache objects to be created,
but ensures that the same cache is updated with each request.
As well, in order to prevent the cache from growing endlessly, consider the following factors for rendering dynamically
generated templates using the new LiveCycle APIs, those being renderHTMLForm2 and renderPDFForm2.
When using the new APIs, the template is passed as a document object, which is handled in the Forms service based
on whether it is passivated or not:
For passivated documents in which the UUID and content root serve as the cache key, consider the following aspects:
• The cache is not created for passivated input templates with no UUID.
• If more than one passivated input template having the same UUID and content root are passed, then the same cache
is overwritten.

INSTALLING ADOBE LIVECYCLE WORKBENCH 11
Installing Workbench
For non-passivated documents in which the filename and content root serve as the cache key, consider the following
aspect:
• For non-passivated input templates, caching depends on the content root and filename from which the document
was generated. The same cache will be used only for requests with the same content root and template filename.
The following best practices will ensure that the cache does not grow endlessly when dynamically generated
templates are passed to the Forms service:
• Strip the UUID or pass the same UUID in all dynamically generated templates.
• Generate the document either from template bytes or from the same filename on disk.
3.8 Uninstalling Workbench
In Windows XP, use the Add or Remove Programs function in the Control Panel to start the Uninstaller. The
Workbench and Designer applications have separate uninstall programs.
In Windows Vista, click Start > Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features. Select Adobe LiveCycle ES4 Workbench 11 and then click Uninstall.
In Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features. Select Adobe LiveCycle ES4 - Workbench 11 and
then click Uninstall.
