Hello Experts Exchange Team

When i try to digitaly sign a Infopath Form on a Sharepoint 2007 Server with Infopath Forms Services at one of our customers, the following error appears: Error. Try again.
I have tried also to install the form to another page in the same sharepoint farm, but there is no difference. I have tried to sign the form on different machines with different users, but the error appears every time. It seams to be a server problem. The same Infopath form works fine in our test environment. Unfortunately i did not found logs. Are there any logs? Thanks for the help!

try looking at the SharePoint logs, which should be located on the server that hosts the sharepoint site in the following directory (yours MAY be a different server extensions than 12):
c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extension\12\logs

I have opened to log file after the signature error, but there is no entry concerning the forms services. I have changed the log level for the forms services runtime entries in the central administration, but the error message make no entries in the log file. Do i need to change the log level otherwise?

Thanks for the help, i have opened a case at Microsoft and we have found the Problem. It was not a server issue, the certificate properties was wrong. The certificate was issued for "User Signature Only", and using this certificate type the Infopath document signing works on Windows XP/2003 platforms, but for Windows Vista/7/2008 a "Code Signing" certificate is required. Using this template the Infopath Forms can be signed on the new platforms.
