Infopath 2007 + VSTA + Windows Server 2008 R2 = looking but no finding

hey everyone

well today i had a problem with infopath 2007 + vsta. I needed to develop c# in an infopath form.

Well it seemed that i was unable to do so because VSTA wasn’t installed, or so it seemed.

You can find many blogs saying uninstall infopoth program with frame 2.0 node , install framework 2.0 and install the office node back.

Well no good, still didn’t work.

In the end i went looking for the vsta.exe on my disk, well guess what, I did find it, so what was the problem you ask?

Office in all it’s supreme knowledge install it in the wrong dir

I was using windows server 2008 R2 (64bit ofcourse) and office 2007 installed the VSTA in “program filesMicrosoft Visual Studio 8Common7IDE and here comes the punchline

it need to be installed (or copied in this case) to “program filesMicrosoft Visual Studio 8Common7IDE”, without the (86x) part

This problem kept me busy all day so I hope that this blog saves some time for somebody…..

kind regards
