Infopath Web form opens for Windows 7, but not XP
Posted on 2012-04-10
So my problem is that a web form can be opened by my Win7 clients, and any use of the form, such as setting drop box selections, or a little advanced item like searching a user in AD work fine on a windows 7 machine, but if i open the same form on my sharepoint server in an XP machine it opens, but selecting items or searching names, the field blanks out or defaults to the first drop box selection.
in some rare cases if i restart the webclient service, the form works right once, then if opened again it fails repeatedly. I'm just in the desktop dept, but i've been asked to find out why this is the case :( can anyone point me in a direction on how infopath forms services works and what an XP machine with IE7 or IE8 needs to display the form and talk with the server correctly?
