How to use InfoPath without the client and without SharePoint

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have a question on this same issue. I am task with designing an InfoPath form in a non-SharePoint/webserver/service environment. The form should be used for 3 end users. End user 1 will recieve the form, fill it out send it to end user 2 and then to end users 3 for review and approval. ONLY end users 2 and 3 may have infopath on their PC. How is this possible? Also, when I send the actual form ( non-published or published) to end user 1 an error message says infopath can't open the form. I would really like some help. I read that I need to remove the script/code from the programming language, which i did. Any help will do the trick. PMA

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.


Programmatically submit Infopath Forms to the Sharepoint Library from client computer


Hello. I have a task to programmatically sumbit/update/delete infopath forms (from .NET console application) to Sharepoint server 2007. The application must work from client computers (without Sharepoint installed). Therefore I've decided to use Sharepoint web services (Lists.asmx), but after some time of investigation I've figured out that I can't work with Forms Library via Lists.asmx service. Please, advice me the most optimal solution. Some choices that I see:

- use some another web service to work with "Forms Library"

- use "List" (instead of "Forms Library") on Sharepoint (am I right, that I can submit/update/delete forms as file attachments? Am I right that this could be achieved with UpdateListItems/AddAttachment methods of Lists service?)

- implement a server and client applications to use Sharepoint Object Model on server side


Please, advice me the right solution. Thank you.

Insert image into Infopath form and save to SharePoint as PDF file


I have an InfoPath web-enabled form in MOSS 2007, that is integrated with a K2 blackpoint process for an approval workflow.

Once the form (a Purchase Order request form) has been approved in the K2 workflow process, I switch the form view to a "print-friendly" view for the requestor to view from the browser.  However, now I need to go one step further with this scenario:

1) I need to somehow insert/embed an image with the scanned-in signature of the approver (likely stored in a SP doc library) at the signature line section of my form.  Also, what are the security requirements for storing such images, but not granting all users access to these (e.g. only services accounts that need to access this for embedding into the form, etc.)?

2) Then I need to convert this final "print-friendly" view of the form (with the signature image) to a PDF document so that I can store it in SharePoint (and email it to the requestor using K2's email event capabilities).

Can anyone help me with a solution to both of these requirement, or point me to some resources for this (even 3rd party components are open-game).



Sharepoint site client access denied


I have an sharepoint application which was working fine.

I encountered a license expired message in sql server enterprise evaluation 2008 version after which i changed the date to 2 months earlier date, I have also changed HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\100\ConfigurationState to 3 after which sql server started working but the issue is that the clients are unable to access the sharepoint site completely. On providing the url the web site requests for logon information and then access is denied. The same url with the same authentication credentials is accessible from the server and the entire application works fine from the server. 

From the  client the below error page appears.

You are not authorized to view this page

You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

Please try the following:

  • Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
  • Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.
