    Hi,

    You can download the latest version from our website:

    http://spform.com/download

    Run the setup-file and follow the wizard steps. Then re-activate Forms Designer feature at the site collection level.

    If you upgrade between major versions (from 2.x to 3.x), you will also need to re-save each custom form in the new designer.

    [#1]: hi

    thanks for the mail.

    Do you want us to run the setup file on all the WFE servers. If there is already SPForms installed (old version), will it be upgraded automatically or do we need to uninstall/delete the existing SPForms installation and install this newer version ?

    [#2]: You need start the setup file on one of the WFEs of the farm. Next, choose the 'Upgrade' option in the wizard.

    hi

    i downloaded and installed the latest version of the forms designer and once i clicked the

    Design forms in any of the lists in the sharepoint site, it says "You are attempting to launch forms designer" and then takes me to another page saying "If forms designer has not started automatically install the desktop application and refrresh this pageor your can launch the silverlight plugin if you use IE or firefox.

    i downloaded the forms deisgner into my desktop and enabled the silverlght addons in my IE 10.0 .

    But it asks for the same again and again which is very frustrating.

    it allows me to the forms deisnger page only if i click any of these two links.

    please help me on this

    Pugal

    [#4]: I recommend you to install desktop application. You can start it even from your desktop and connect to any list within the farm. Also, after installation it is started automatically when you click Design forms button in the ribbon.
