In a SharePoint 2013 document library, SharePoint does not provide a link to a XSN file. I have a XSN in a library. When I open the menu for the file in the library, and copy the link in the dialog box, the file name is not included in the link.  SharePoint does open the XSN, but no link is created.  I have Office 2010 installed and have Windows 8.1.  What can I do to get a link so I paste the link on a SharePoint webpage?

Thanks

I resolved the problem.  I uploaded the XSN with Windows Explorer view and that caused the files to be corrupted.  I did not use Windows Explorer this time and now the XSN files work and I can get a link to the file in the document library.

I was able to resolve the problem by downloading and uploading the XSN files a different way.
