Creating PDF-Forms where the form-data can be saved in Adobe Reader would require a license for Adobe's lifeCycle package/tools (that obvioulsy LO cannot provide, as Adobe wants to see money for that). Adobe Reader expects a specifically signed/crafted PDF to allow saving of the form data. Only Adobe Tools (or tools that use licensed stuff from Adobe) can create forms that can be saved in Adobe Reader.
So the solution is to not use Adobe Reader, but some of the free alternatives that don't have that restriction, that can save the form-data nevertheless. Evince for example is suitable and also is available for windows ( https://live.gnome.org/Evince/Downloads/ ) and free as in "free software". For both linux and windows there are also quite a few alternatives. One of the first hits in a google search fow windows was PDF-XChange Viewer that is also available for free (as in free beer)
