I've got a simple update to a workflow association/initiation form that isn't deploying correctly. I am setting a tooltip on a validation but when I deploy my updated solution package the change isn't reflected via the UI.

Steps so far:

  • Checked file in 14-hive, this is the correct, updated version
  • Checked file in the /sitecollection/WorkflowForms folder. It's using the file off disk (14 hive)

When I run stsadm -upgradeformtemplate (and the powershell equivalent) I get this error

Install-SPInfoPathFormTemplate : The following form template cannot be upgraded because it is not currently uploaded on this farm

If your form does not have any workflows initiated, deactivate the form feature, remove the template and reupload.

Ah, the form does have workflows initiated, hence my desire to have it updateable. Using upgrade-spsolution is pretty important to my situation (workflow is in production). –  Neil Richards Jun 2 '11 at 15:13
