Ask a question:

When generating SB08 forms, Adobe Live Cycle opens instead of Adobe Acrobat/Reader

Solution This happens because your computer has Adobe's .xdp form files associated with Adobe Live Cycle, rather than Adobe Acrobat/Reader.

To change the default association, you can do the following:
1. Open File Explorer (not IE, but the regular file/folder explorer in Windows)
2. Type %TEMP% in the address bar - this will take you to a default temp directory on your computer
3. Find a file called PTOSB08a_1.xdp, which ClaimMaster generated, or any other .xdp file
4. Right-click on the file and choose "Open with..."
5. Select Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader from the list of programs to open .xdp files
6. Make sure that "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file..." check box is selected.

This should be it - when ClaimMaster generates a filled-out Adobe form in .xdp format, it will be opened by the proper Adobe program, which will automatically convert it to the proper pdf format and you'll see the filled-out SB08 form appear.
