And they said it couldn’t be done, well that was the word out on the internet. In fact, it said it can be done but get ready for a lot of pain. And they were right.

However this morning I managed to get some rather complex forms migrated from MOSS 2007 to SharePoint 2013 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 setup. Couple of things that may help in your quest.

  1. Ensure Infopath form services is setup correctly via central admin.
  2. Make sure you have the state service running (This one really got me, run it via powershell).
  3. Ensure you have the customer experience feature activated from where ever you are deploying from. (I did mine from the SQL server, long story but hey ho, mans got to do what a mans go to do).
  4. Re-configure all data connections in the form, where possible. Im still having some fun with the people picker.
  5. Make sure you are deploying to the correct location!
  6. URL Not found? IIS will tell you access denied. Make sure you have permissions on the library and that Infopath has signed you in correctly!

Hope this helps, I’ll add more as they come 🙂

Im off for a cup of tea!
