  • Hi Rehman,

    According to your snapshot message, your form templates that require full trust. so, please try the following steps in your Infopath 2007.

    Try to check this setting in InfoPath 2007.

    The Menu -> Tools -> Form Options -> Security and Trust -> uncheck "Automatically determine security level" and select Full Trust - >OK.

  • Hi Rehman,

    Since you state that users who have InfoPath 2007 installed can open forms but only users who have InfoPath 2010 install cannot open the form my suspicions are that your network/AD folks have enabled the InfoPath 2010 specific policy that disables the opening of fully trusted InfoPath templates.  InfoPath 2007 had policies that could be applied based on zone but InfoPath 2010 has one that simply disables fully trusted templates.  You should be able to find it here:


    You can also check this and other 2010 policies at the below location.  It includes a spreadsheet that has a listing of the policies.

  • Hi Aaron,

    Thanks for ur Reply, Yes i got a new answer but i couldn't find the path you mentioned above. Can you give exact path to find the "security" and please explain what to do when we go to that path.

  • Hi Rehman,

    You or your domain admins should be able to look at this in the Group Policy Management Editor by selecting the policy managing user software.  Under User Configuration - Policies - Administrative Templates - Microsoft InfoPath 2010 - Security you should find a setting "Disable fully trusted solutions full access to computer".

    The GPO policies will affect only those applications they cover - at least when it comes to Office (from my limited experience and testing).  So if your domain admins have Office 2007 policies set such that under 2007 users can open fully trusted templates but ALSO have Office 2010 policies in place as well which are set to deny opening of fully trusted templates then users who have 2007 will be able to open them while those users with 2010 will not.

  • Hi Aaron,

    I couldn't able to find the "User Configuration - Policies - Administrative Templates - Microsoft InfoPath 2010 - Security" location in GPO policies. I checked in so many of my colleagues machines. Is there any alternative solution for this to check. Please kindly help me out, since two months i have been worrying by this issue.
