Is .Net Framework needed using VSTA code in InfoPath forms. ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Folks,

    Target Technology: InfoPath 2007, VSTA, SharePoint 2007

    I have InfoPath form. I wrote some code in Visual Studio Tools for Application (VSTA) and attached with InfoPath forms. This form is used by 100+ users on SharePoint site. Is it necessary for 100+ user to install .Net Framework on their box ? If so, Is there any way user can use it without .net framework installation ? Pls. advise.



    Thanks, Chintan

  • Hi,

    Users need to have the ".Net Programmability" activated during the installation of Office on their machine.

    The code is executed on their machine, so they need to have the .Net Framework installed too in order to work well.

    Their is no way to do without .net Framework.

    Hope this helps.

  • I would like to add that's it's only true if the form is a filler-form (used in the InfoPath application, not the browser).  If the form is browser-enabled the code runs on the server and the users do not require .net, or .net programmability support for InfoPath forms, or InfoPath application for that matter.
