Workflow designed for infopath 2007 fails when triggered by infopath 2010

I have a workflow that changes the permissions on an infopath form that is saved to a library. When the form is saved to the library with infopath 2010 the workflow fails with the following error:  DP.Sharepoint.Workflow.DPWorkflowException: Error loading form data file. Likely causes: this file is not a valid InfoPath Form! ---> System.Xml.XmlException: Root element is missing. at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.Throw(Exception e) at System.Xm I have tried to uninstall infopath 2010 and office 2010 then install infopath 2007 and the workflow still fails. Can someone help me either figure out what I need to change on the workflow for it to function with infopath 2010 or what the uninstaller is missing when removing the office 2010.   

Problem with InfoPath 2007 Form opened with InfoPath 2010 - whole number integer not coming into dat


I found an issue when testing existing InfoPath 2007 forms via the Infopath 2010 Designer client.  Integer fields in the form template are publishing to a SharePoint Forms Library and show in the default view.  However, if that library is then used as a Data Connection in another or same form template those integer fields are not displaying or available for selection. 

This is not a problem using the InfoPath 2007 client.  It is not an option to convert the field to text as it could affect existing forms in existing libraries.  Also, existing integer fields are no longer appearing in previously defined SharePoint-based secondary data connections.  Only the ID field still appears.  But, those existing fields still work in the form and are selectable for functions, etc.

Is there a solution to this?

Thanks much!  Mike - www.ProgramNetInc.com


Infopath 2010 submitting to MOSS 2007

Hi all,

I have a quick query regarding Infopath 2010 submitting data into a MOSS 2007 form library.  This is the first time I'm trying to build a form using 2010.  Normally in 2007, when cerating the submission I'd query the form library to get the ID & then use @max(ID)+1 to get the next available number which I'd then use in the name of the form, however, in Infopath 2010, you don't appear to be able to use the ID field in formula as it doesn't appear in the list of avaialble fields in the data connection.  I considered using a calculated field which equals the ID, but calculated fields aren't usable either.

Has anyone else seen this or is it just my installation? has anyone worked around this?

Thanks in advance.


calling InfoPath 2007 Client from SharePoint 2010 Foundation


I'm relatively new to SharePoint and very new to InfoPath. A client I just acquired hired me to develop a fairly complicated InfoPath solution that they want to be able to call from within SharePoint. Right now, they have a new SharePoint 2010 Foundation system and Form Server is not installed. They also currently have Office 2007, including the InfoPath client, on all computers in the workplace (this is an intranet only situation).

First, I created the needed lists/libraries in SP. Then I set to work developing the form in IP Designer 2010 (setting it for IP 2007 client compatibility). While the form is not yet done, I now want to setup a link in a ListView in SharePoint that launches the IP 2007 client on the user's computer, but I'm having troubles figuring out which way to go. There is a fair amount of C# code used by the form and while I'm an administrator on the server, I'm not familiar with setting up certificates to enable full trust (if that's what I need to do).

As a newbie, I'd really appreciate any pointers to existing answers or guidance of whatever sort.


Problem opening an attachment from Infopath 2007 form in SharePoint 2010

I have an InfoPath 2007 form that is opened as a web based form in SharePoint 2010 that has an attachment control.  In Windows XP with IE 7 when you double click the attachment there is a warning message presented and after you click OK you get a prompt that asks if you want to open or save the file or cancel.  In Windows 7 with IE 8 when you double click the attachment there is a warning message presented and after you click OK you get a prompt that asks if you want to save the file or cancel, no open option.  I already set the SharePoint browser permission to permissive for the site and it doesn't help.  How can I get this to work in Windows 7 and IE 8?

WSS 3.0 infopath opens in 2003 not 2007


I have loaded an infopath 2007 form into our sharepoint (wss3.0).  I keep getting an error when I try to open the form from the document library.

The form template was created with a newer version of InfoPath.
This form template was created by InfoPath version 12.0.0.

I do not have infopath 2003 on my system only office 2007 so I am confused as to why it is defaulting to 2003 and giving me this error?


InfoPath 2010 does not work in claims authentication mode on SharePoint 2010


Hi everyone,

I created an Infopath 2010 Forms published on a Claims-based authentication site collection. This form has an external datasource plugged on the _vti_bin/UserProfileService.asmx webservice (within the same site collection). This datasource is queried when the form opens. When I check this form with Infopath designer preview, everything works fine.

But once this forms is published, an error "Error while trying to contact Web Service" occured when opening a new form.

Here ere an extract of the logs:

The following query failed: GetUserProfileByName (User: DOMAIN\username, Form Name: library, IP: , Connection Target: , Request: http://server/_layouts/FormServer.aspx?xsnLocation=http://server/library/forms/template.xsn?DefaultItemOpen=1&Source=http://server/page.aspx, Form ID: urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:infopath:library:-myXSD-2010-01-12T23-08-28 Type: DataAdapterException, Exception Message: The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error.
Server was unable to process request. ---> Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.
The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error.)

Here is an extract of my IIS log:

Not able to publish an infopath 2010 Web browser form mode, Invalid form template, .xsf file not ref


Hi, i am migrating a infopath 2007 form from a sharepoint 2007 site to infopath 2010 form for a sharepoint 2010 site. I used the design checker to verify the form template ,I got a invalid form template error. So I went to the Resource files tab under the developer section. I edited the context.xml to my current site. After this,the design checker gave no errors.

But when i tried to preview this form, I got an erro saying

"The form template contains files that are not referenced in the form definition (.xsf) file or are referenced more than once."

Can anybody tell me where I went wrong?

Infopath 2010 seems a lot slower than infopath 2007


Hi guys,

I've made an Infopath 2007 form hosted on a sharepoint 2007 server. I use 2 virtuals machine to test different user roles and setups. One thing is clear : Infopath 2007 is way faster than 2010.

- The form is opened from XYZ library in sharepoint.

- The form is created with office 2007 pro plus (infopath)

- The Sharepoint server is the 2007 one with all the latest upgrades.

- When opened with infopath 2007, it takes less than 1 second to load

- When opened with infopath 2010, it takes more than 10 seconds to load

- Every drop down in the form is populated from an XML file located on a web server.

- The form need full thrust permission and so use a CA certificate. Certificate which is created by the domain controller. (windows server 2008 r2)

- The form send email and browse active directory from code behind.


I wanna know why infopath 2010 take so long to load.

Using Microsoft Infopath 2010 with MOSS 2007


I currently have InfoPath 2007 forms uploaded on the MOSS 2007 server in which we can fill out and will submit to/query from a database. I was curious if I decided to upgrade to Microsoft InfoPath 2010 would it be a smooth transition or would I need to change anything since I'm not upgrading MOSS 2007. Thanks in advance!

Unable to get AD profile information using InfoPath form in Sharepoint 2007 browser mode


I have followed the threads on this but haven't been able to resolve the issue with any of the suggestions provided.  I need to get the user's first and last name from their profile.  I created an InfoPath form using the "Get current user without writing code" blog directions I ran across here, using the standard userprofileservice.asmx service.  Everything works fine so long as I don't use the SharePoint browser option.  Then I get the error:

An error occurred accessing a data source.
An entry has been added to the Windows event log of the server.

Log ID:5566

I have attacked this from every angle I can think of:

IE, Design checker - OK, SSP account, my account have AD read access, no problems getting to the site collection, as stated before, runs fine if I don't use the browser option

Converted the connection to a udcx stored in the same site as the form library - tried both converted and unconverted connection - same problem, removed the connection altogether, everything works fine (but, of course, no profile info), works under InfoPath using either connection

Set form with Domain trust

Published it to a form library, also tried admin approved with full trust and signed - same problem

Ran locally on SharePoint server and remotely - same problem


Can you embed an Infopath 2007 form with MOSS 2007 in an Outlook 2010 email?



MOSS 2007, Infopath 2007 and Outlook 2010

Is it possible to embed the Infopath Form in the email itself.

I read this link (point 1) http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/infopath/microsoft-office-infopath-2007-top-10-benefits-HA010165024.aspx, but I have been unable to do this?

Do you have to have Infopath 2007 on the client machine to be able to do this?
