Microsoft Fix it Solution to allow multiple open InfoPath forms is Live!


clip_image002 Error message when you try to open multiple instances of an InfoPath 2007 form at the same time by using different input parameters

We just released another Fix it Knowledge Base (KB) article. This Fix it addresses the following scenario:

  • You create a Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 form template that contains an input parameter.
  • You publish the template to a content library of a Microsoft Office SharePoint site.

In this scenario, when you try to open multiple instances at the same time of the InfoPath form by using different input parameters, you receive the following error message:

InfoPath cannot open the form because another version of the form template is currently open. Close all forms using the form template and try again.

This Fix it modifies the Windows registry as described in KB 957385.

  • Adds a key called InputParametersOpenMultipleForms under HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\InfoPath\EditorCommon
