InfoPath cannot open the selected form.

I have a pretty basic Infopath form, a few text boxes and a button. when i try to preview or debug I get an error that says InfoPath cannot open the selected form. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A little more information on this. The infopath form will preview fine up until the point i click the edit form code button on the button properties. This creates/saves a VSTA project (that i have not modified at all) but will not preview after this point.

    I figured it out. I was under Tools > Form Options > Security & Trusts > I gave it Full Trust and created a certificate. May only need to do one or the other but i did both just to be done w/ it.
