Users with permissions cant open or edit form - "The form has been closed"


Dear All,

I am facing this unique problem. Some users in my company's SharePoint portal network despite user permissions, cant open their previous forms or add a new form. Just for testing I also tried giving one of the users full rights, but the problem persists. I am using infopath web based forms.

Following is the error when the user opens up a form:

" Form has been closed"

Upon checking the SharePoint error logs. I found following error message

The form template failed to load. (User: Litware\max.steve, Form Name: Expense, IP": , Request: http://portal/_layouts/FormServer.aspx?XsnLocation=http://portal/hr/Expense/Forms/template.xsn&SaveLocation=http://portal/hr/Expense&Source=http://port

Cannot open windows .net form in powerpoint slide show window


We have successfully created .NET addin in PowerPoint. On the click of this addin, we have opened a .net Form where there are three buttons(say Login and etc). On the click of Login button, we opened Login form. This works perfectly in PowerPoint.  But when we have slide show window, on the click on Login button, Login form gets opened on main PowerPoint window, but not on SlideShow window. This works properly on winXP m/c. We are facing this issue on win7 m/c. Please help me.

Thanks in advance.

WPF Designer (in VS 2008 and VS 2010) crashes with Visual Studio

Good day all. I have the following question: WPF designer in both VS 2008 and VS 2010 crashes with Visual Studio when I try to edit UI form. Moreover, it crashes even when I try to save .xaml.cs file. Meanwhile, Winforms and Dataset UI editors work as usual. Are there other people met this issue? And how could I fix up this problem? Deleting the .suo file, uninstalling silverlight, repairing visual studio, and further googling did not help me. Thanks in advance.
