How to check-Forms Server is installed on a server or not ?

Problem Description:
Forms Server was installed on a server and you need to verify its installation.

What excatly we need to check for this?
Check whether the Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.dll is installed on the server.

Resolution:To verify the installation of Forms Server you need to check whether the DLL is properly installed on the server and whether the ASP.NET page is present. You can do this as follows:
1.Go to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office Servers\12.0\Bin\ and check whether Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server.dll is present in this folder.
2.Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\ and check whether FormServer.aspx is present in this folder.
3.Open the .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration tool by going to Start > Settings > Control Panel, opening the Administrative Tools and then the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration.
4.Click on Manage the Assembly Cache listed under Tasks in the right panel of the .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration dialog box.
5.Click on View List of Assemblies in the Assembly Cache under Tasks in the right panel of the .NET Framework 2.0 Configuration dialog box.
6.Look whether Microsoft.Office.InfoPath.Server is listed among the DLLs that are registered in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC).

  1. Hi Dude,

    In effect, ASP.NET membership and ASP.NET login controls provide a layer of abstraction over forms authentication and replace most or all of the work you would normally have to do to use forms authentication. Thanks a lot......
