When I published my InfoPath form to my SharePoint 2007, it gives me the following error:

updating the content type failed

I went through a search and many of the search return (Microsoft Forum, Thor Project) give me a this link, which no longer available.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can publish my InfoPath form successfully? (fyi - it did publish successfully previously but after adding 8 new fields and promoting them, I got the above error)


Strange, I went back to my SharePoint library to perform a quick check and I notice that my SharePoint library has the 8 new fields being successfully published. So, why does the error message appear since it was successfully? Am I missing anything?
