How correctly install Forms Designer?


Posted by AswinMod - Nov 11 ’12 at 04:19

Good time of day. I have decided to try yor tool, it seems quite useful. But I have some problems with installation. I'm new in SharePoint, so may be you can help me to understand, what I do not correctly.

I downloaded trial version of SharePoint Forms Designer, and started installation as described in your documentation.

When I runed SharePoint 2010 Management Shell it throwed the error "Cannot access the local farm". Any actions I did after that didn't helped me to install your tool. I just got errors. I guess there are some problems with Management Shell.

So, could you provide more detailed guide for installation for me?

    Hi, AswinMod.

    You surely don't have permissions for SharePoint databases or Farm Administrator permissions.

    To provide this permission you can talk with your administartor. If you have permissions for SharePoint server and database server, you can add yourself to Farm Administrators, just use this blog post for concrete guide.

    Hi, you were right, it was permission issue. Now everything is ok.
