I haven't tried this, but Microsoft offer a way of moving custom forms from one computer to another: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/253658

To move a custom form, there are two steps. First, you must save the form to a .fdm file. Second, you must open the form from the .fdm file, and then install the form on the second computer.
To save the custom form as a .fdm file

On the Tools menu, click Options.
On the Other tab, click Advanced Options, click Custom Forms, and then click Manage Forms.
Click the form you want to move. If you do not see the correct form, click Set, and then browse through the additional folders.
Click Save As, type a file name for your form, and then change the Save in box to your floppy disk drive.
To install the custom form on another computer

On the Tools menu, click Options.
On the Other tab, click Advanced Options, click Custom Forms, and then click Manage Forms. Before you click Install, verify that the correct folder is showing. If you do not see the correct form, click Set, and then browse through the additional folders.

Click Install. Change the Files of Type box to Form Message (*.fdm), and then change the Look in box to your floppy drive.
Click the form, click Open, and then click OK.

Whoops, sorry. I couldn't find a version on the knowledge base article, but just saw now that it was from 2007. Glad you were able to get it fixed.

Hello. This post was helpful to me in navigating where to publish a meeting template. However, I'm having an issue and wondering if you could provide some guidance.

I've verified with my network admin that my exchange account has author permission to our organization forms folder. When I follow your steps from above - to navigate to the forms manager, set the right bucket to organization forms and install....my install button is greyed out. See attachment.

I've saved my template as an fdm, but I'm never able to "install" it to the organization forms folder. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
