What are the Steps Installing Infopath Form Service on WSS 3.0 or do I need to upgrade to MOSS?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I  have configured Extranet Https Portal for our configuration.It includes some custom web-parts features in the site. My WSS 3.0 -Cenrtal Admin version is I have MOSS 2007 - Central Version Now I have designed a Infoapth form and want to publish to a library in the site.We can publish the form to a library but At client side Infopath 2007 sholud be installed in order to submit the form.It is not Browser Enabled. ( You cannot enable InfoPath Forms Services in WSS, because it is not present in WSS. Before you can enable InfoPath Forms Services, you have to install Forms Server or MOSS Enterprise.  It is not Browser enabled.  ) Infopath form services is a component of MOSS not WSS Is there any other way instead of intalling Moss 2007 can I only Install Infoapth Form services on it. Can I upgrade the WSS 3.0 to MOSS 2007 and get the Infoapth form services to the existing site without any loss of data.   I have read that while upgrading wss to moss the central admin version  should be same then only you can upgrade is this true?? what steps I need to consider ?? Guide me Thanks in Advance Harish

Q: How to print out background color in InfoPath 2007 browser form under MOSS form service?


Hi InfoPath experts,

I am trying to print out a custom InfoPath 2007 browser form using "Print View" function offered by MOSS Form Service. It seems like the all background color formats has been stripped out when printed out. Interestingly, only font colors are remain the same in printed-out.
Is there a way to fix this issue? I know you can change the settings: http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/infopath-help/print-background-colors-and-pictures-HP001095710.aspx , but it only applies for InfoPath Client Form, not browser-based Form!

Any help are appreciated!

Contact Selector Failed in MOSS Workflow Modification Infopath Form

Hi,   In my proof of concept Moss 2007 WF, I tested an Infopath modification form successfully.  Then the contact selector ActiveX control was added but it failed to open using the modification link of the workflow page.  In a different form for the WF initiation, I similarly created two CS controls and it worked there.  A snippet of the MOSS error is below   Object reference not set to an instance of an object.   at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.ContactPicker.RenderClientViewDataLeafContent(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext renderContext, ControlViewData controlViewData, ScriptWriter writer)    at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.LeafControl.RenderClientViewDataContent(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext renderContext, ScriptWriter writer)    at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.BaseControl.RenderClientViewData(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext renderContext, ScriptWriter writer)    at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.ContainerControl.RenderClientViewDataContent(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext renderContext, ScriptWriter writer)    at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.BaseControl.RenderClientViewData(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext renderContext, ScriptWriter writer)    at Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.Controls.CollectionControl.RenderClientViewDataContent(XPathNavigator context, IRenderContext rend

Deploy infopath 2010 form template to MOSS (saved as Infopath2007 format)

I saw this post on another site and this happened to me as well.  I am trying to create a web form with controls, chose WebForms for Infopath2007 and changed the code to C# for Infopath 2007 and tried to deploy the form to the Infopath forms solution in Central Admin and was unable to do so.  any suggestions?

some odd reason while performing stsadm -o verifyformtemplate -filename

"Service Unavailable" after installing MOSS 2007


I have just installed MOSS 2007 on a machine with 64-bit Win 2K3. It installs fine but after installation navigating to the Central Administration site yields a "Service Unavailable" message.

I tried searching for reasons for this, but the event viewer has no significant logs, and the relevant services (World Wide Wed Publishing Service, Windows SharePoint Services Administration, and Windows SharePoint Services Timer are all started.

I had previously installed and run MOSS 2007 successfully on this machine, but had to uninstall and reinstall for an unconnected reason. After reinstalling, I am now getting the "Service Unavailable" error.

Can someone give me an idea what to look into to debug this issue? Thanks in advance.

Create an Infopath form to generate unique number MOSS 2007


I created an infopath form that would auto generate a number to each form from following instructions at the following site.




I am wondering if it is possible to change the starting point of the ID field within sharepoint.  It starts at 1.  I would like it to start at 1000. and add 1 number each time a new infopath form is added. Or would I add a different field to accomplish this.

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?

Using Infopath form fieldnames in a workflow fails



I designed a form in Infopath and I published it on a SP2007 server to use in a workflow in a library. That goes fine. In the workflow I send an email message. I can use the fields from my Infopath form in the message that I create. 
If the workfow is starts, Shrepoints sends me the message. But it does not use the fields from my InfoPtah form in the message in stead I see questionmarks.

Why doesn't it show the fields?

I alse saw (maybe this makes it clear) that when I let it dipslay the URL in the message, it show: http://1.portal.lucasonderwijs, but the actual site is whithout the "1" and it should also start with https://

Has anyone seen this before?

Thank you,


InfoPath Workflow Task Form "Loading" event handler only being called after App Pool recycled.


I have a Workflow that is using an InfoPath task form.  In the "FormEvents_Loading" method event handler I have some code that needs to run each time the form is opened.   I recycle the App Pool and open the form the code runs perfectly, but if I close and try to re-open the form the code is not run at all.  I can then recycle the App Pool again and on the next load the code executes just fine.   The code that is supposed to be run is a very simple statement to set a field value, so I don't think it is interfering.

Does anyone know what this might be?

Problems moving an InfoPath form from a DEV system to QA environment


We developed an InfoPath form using a local DEV environment.  The site collection under which the form was developed was http://server1/.

We are now attempting to deploy this form to a TEST environment that uses a slightly different structure for the collection, namely http://server2/sites/sitecol1.

In both cases the site that contains the form is /fin (so we were using http://server1/fin in DEV and want to use http://server2/sites/sitecol1/fin in TEST). 

The form contains VBA code and so requires admin-based deployment via Central Administration, so to deploy to TEST we:

1. Publish the form against the TEST server using InfoPath Designer

2. Upload the form using Central Administration > Application Managment > Manage Form Templates

3. After upload, we activate the form for the site collection http://server2/sites/sitecol1/

4. The form is then associated with a Form Library

When we try to create an instance of the form within this library we get the following error when we click on New to create the form instance:

The following location is not accessible, because it is in a differ

Infopath cannot load this form. Either the signature is corrupted, or the certificatie used to sign



I have a whole bunch of forms contains errors like whenever you try to open it up.

Infopath cannot load this form.  Either the signature is corrupted, or the certificatie used to sign this form is expired or revoked.

The forms were orginally created with digital signature with it.  But we were in the middle of transition from one company to another company.  The digital signature was no longer valid.  Actually, the certificate should have been expired by now.  I removed all the signatures for all of the forms.  So they can continue using the forms to fill in the information.  The problem right now, is trying to open the old forms with digital signature on it.   Not only the company has changed.  We also moved sharepoint from the old server to the new server.

Any idea to resolve th

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).



InfoPath form checked out so 'on create' workflow not being started


Hi all,


I have found a couple of threads asking for advice on how to check in an InfoPath form when it’s saved or submitted to a forms library. The reason for doing this is so a workflow can start based on a new item being created in that library, and so it doesn’t just sit there with a “Starting” status.


The answers I have found contradict each other:

·         You have to do it with a workflow.  This can be done easily with SharePoint Designer if that's an option for you. Source:
