Error When Uploading InfoPath Form in Central Administration



An error appears when I try to upload an InfoPath Form template in Central Administration -> Application Management -> Manage Form Templates -> Upload Form Template.  The error output is "Unknown Error" after attempting to upload the Form.  Not Very Useful!

When I show more detailed errors it shows as below.  The Form compiles and publishes fine in Visual Studio.

I have not seen this error before in Cental Administration when uploading an InfoPath Form Template.  What could the problem be?

Error when opening Infopath Form


Background: Created an Infopath 2003 form with 2 views (1 as Read-Only View and another 1 for Submitting content) and published to a Sharepoint 2007 Library.

Working: When a user opens a new form it opens in submit view; once the form has been submitted, when the user tries to open again, the form opens in read-only view.

Error: 99% of the users do not face any issues, however when the the rest 1% of the users try to open a new form; they receive the following error and are unable to open the form.

Form template: _http://server/sites/subsite/library/forms/template.xsn
InfoPath cannot open the following view: Edit_View
The following view file is not valid: view1.xsl
The file is not a valid XML document.

An invalid character was found in text content.

Line 673, Position 12

I am not sure what is wrong here (or) from where this error is being generated!

Attachment upload error on browser based InfoPath form



I am having an interesting problem with browser based InfoPath forms in SharePoint 2007.  For some reason the file attachment control is not working any more.  It was working fine in July, but now it will not allow file attachments over a few kb.  I tried a 34KB file and I get the error below, a 2KB file works fine.

Error when activating Infopath form deployed as a feature

I've packaged a form as a feature and created the appropriate WSP file for it.  i then deployed this feature to a target system using the following commands: @SET STSADM="C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN\STSADM" @ECHO OFF ECHO Retract Solution %STSADM% -o retractsolution -n "Crown.SharePoint.CAPEXForm.wsp" -immediate ECHO ====== %STSADM% -o execadmsvcjobs ECHO Remove Solution %STSADM% -o deletesolution -n "Crown.SharePoint.CAPEXForm.wsp" -override ECHO ====== %STSADM% -o execadmsvcjobs ECHO Adding Solution %STSADM% -o addsolution -f "Crown.SharePoint.CAPEXForm.wsp" ECHO ====== %STSADM% -o execadmsvcjobs ECHO Deploying Solution %STSADM% -o deploysolution -n "Crown.SharePoint.CAPEXForm.wsp" -immediate -allowgacdeployment -force ECHO ====== %STSADM% -o execadmsvcjobs The deployment process completes without errors, and when I check under Central Admin > Solution Mgmt, my feature is there and shows as "Deployed/Globally Deployed".  So all looks good at this time. However, when I go to the Site Collection and try to activate the feature I get this error -- any ideas what may be going on here or what I'm missing?

Infopath form and forms library error

I've created an InfoPath 2010 form and associated it with a forms library on a SharePoint site. When I go to the library and choose "Add document" the form opens up to be filled out by the user. When the form is filled out, and the user tries to submit, they get an error saying that I need to configure SharePoint to allow cross-domain data access for user form templates that use connection settings in a data connection file and store a UDC file in the same site collection as the form. So I've enabled cross-domain data access and I've already created a Data Collection Library for Forms in the Site that is approved. What am I missing?  Why am I still getting the error?  

Error opening an Infopath form

I am trying to open an Infopath xsn form and I get the following error - "infopath cannot load this form. Either the signature is corrupted, or the certificate used to sign this form is expired or revoked. Contact the author of the form." I am the author of the form. I tried calling my cellphone number but there was not answer. Anyway, I've encountered this error before and I ended up redoing the form from scratch. I don't want to do that obviously. Is there a way to open the form somehow?Thanks,Dave

Central Admin (and all other sites) 404 error

I have a MOSS 2007 installation on Windows Server 2008, all 64-bit.  I still have this setup in test phase but there has been a lot of work put into it and was near ready to start receiving content when this happened.  There is one externally facing site collection using port 443 forwarded through our router and mapped through DNS, as well as the default websites and the central administration site.  The only sites being used are the one on 443 and central admin.  Both sites were working and accessible as of yesterday but now they are not.  Directly before the sites became inaccessible two things happened, so I'm not sure which is the cause.  First, updates were installed, and secondly a blank IIS site was created on port 443 as a test, then was deleted out of IIS manager.  Attempts to log into Central Administration now bring up a 404 error although it does take the credentials and Explorer reports "Website found. Waiting for reply." Attempts to access an externally facing site do the same, the web page displays the message to accept the server certificate as well as the logon dialog box, but then it simply times out and brings up a 404 error.  A number of errors have also been reported in event viewer over the past 24 hours: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------The description for Event ID 27745 from source Windows Share

Invalid URL error on InfoPath Form Publish on an External List

I am using SP2010 Enterprise on Windows 7 and SPD 2010 & InfoPath 2010 all on the same machine in test.  I create an External List based on a ECT and Click on the 'Design Forms in InfoPath' icon and 'Item' which drops down from it.  That launches InfoPath Designer 2010 & downloads the form from http://<site>/lists/<mylistname>/Item/template.xsn and sets you up in an edit session.  I can make changes on the form but when I publish via File | Publish | External List (Publish Form To An External List) I get a save prompt for local copy & then an error: The following URL is not valid: http://<site>/lists/<mylistname>/Item/template.xsn  (same URL as it started with during the initial download). I took screen shots of the messages to make sure. Some things I have tried & observations: If I change to an internal Custom List the publish step (to list not external of course) works just fine. I also ran this test launching SPD as Administrator with no difference.  I stopped the System Event Notification service per http://serena-yeoh.blogspot.com/2006/08/infopathformurlnotvalid.html  'net stop sens' with no difference Any ideas are welcome. BTW I notice that this step of launching the InfoPath designer does change the form on the list in Sharepoint albeit slightly -

There has been an error while loading the form - The following file is not a valid InfoPath form tem



We’re experiencing quite an odd issue with opening forms within a SharePoint form library. These are the symptoms;

We recently published a newer version of an InfoPath form, and have since received some feedback that the form no longer opens in the “View Properties” view of SharePoint.

Rather interesting though, within the standard view all form instances can be opened with no problem.

The reason this has to work within the “View Properties” view of SharePoint is because we have a workflow that is sent, with a link to this particular page.

This is the error message that is displayed;

InfoPath error: One or more required custom controls in this form cannot be created


I have an InfoPath 2007 form published to a form library in MOSS 2007.  This form opens in InfoPath and is not browser-enabled.

The form suddenly stopped working for me and 1 other user.  I'm a farm admin and the user only has contributor rights on the form library (and site and subsite).  Everyone else with appropriate permissions can access existing forms that use the template and can create new forms using the template.

When either one of us tries to open the form, we get:

InfoPath cannot open the following file: http://site/subsite/formlibrary/filename.xml?OpenIn=PreferClient&NoRedirect=true&XmlLocation=/subsite/formlibrary/filename.xml.
One or more required custom controls in this form cannot be created.

No errors in the web front end event log or SharePoint log files.  No errors in my client PC's event log.

I've tried the following without success:

Opening the template and publishing it to a new list. 
Published the template to a new content type on this list and a new list. 
Dumped IE cache and reset IE settings.
Rebooted the computer.
Checked permissions on the list to make sure they were correct.

Last change made to the farm:
