After installing Adobe LiveCycle Connector Web Part on SharePoint 2010, you may encounter an error Access Denied while activating Adobe LiveCycle Connector feature on a SharePoint Site Collection. This issue occurs due to a new security feature implemented in SharePoint 2010. You can refer Microsoft KB 2564009 for details.
You can check SharePoint logs for details of the exception. The logs would look similar to:
w3wp.exe (0x0F48) 0x190C SharePoint Foundation Feature Infrastructure 88jm High Feature receiver assembly ‘AdobeLiveCycleConnector, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=6720cbcc342f4ca4′, class ‘LiveCycleInterop.LiveCycleFeatureReceiver’, method ‘FeatureActivated’ for feature ’33a7c6b5-4e62-44aa-bf99-62d283de683a’ threw an exception: System.Security.SecurityException: Access denied. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebService.set_RemoteAdministratorAccessDenied(Boolean value) at LiveCycleInterop.LiveCycleFeatureReceiver.addToWebConfig(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties) at LiveCycleInterop.LiveCycleFeatureReceiver.FeatureActivated(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties) at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFeature.DoActivationCallout(Boolean fActivate, Boolean fForce) The Zone of the assembly that failed was: MyComputer fda8f095-7baa-47e4-b400-740259ad8ff5
