I am developing a InfoPath form in one environment and I need to migrate the form to another environment.  The List and workflows are the same.  I just need to move the InfoPath form(s) to the other environment. How do I do this? Can I use SharePoint Designer 2010?

Not sure if these forms are for libraries or lists.

If it is just the forms in libraries you would republish the forms to the libraries on the new site.

If you have xml files that need to be moved, www.qdabra.com has a tool which will move them and edit the xml so that it looks to the template at the new location.

If these are custom list forms I am not sure since the default method is to edit a form from the library.

I would have to think there is a way to copy the asmx files or something but I am not familiar with that.

The forms are for a list that exist on two different SharePoint Farms. The list and workflows are the same. The list are located in different subsites. But the list are the same.  I need to migrate a copy of the infopath forms on one farm onto the other and use for the list there.

I resolved this problem by doing a granular backup|export list in Central Administration.
I exported and imported the list.  Then copied the list items from the old list into the new list.
This brought over my new InfoPath forms.
