Forms Server Error on Approval Workflow

  Asked By: Rico    Date: May 07    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1719

Has anyone seen this error before?

I have an InfoPath form that is published to a content type - it is NOT
published to Forms Server. I have an OOB Approval workflow configured on
the content type. The workflow adds a task to a task list running in the
same site.

When I complete a document and launch the approval workflow, while the

Server error page, which says "There has been an error while loading the

Has anyone seen this error before under circumstances similar to what
I've described? And more importantly, have you been able to resolve it?

My guess is the URL that is supposed to load  the infopath  form in the
browser is malformed either because it is an incorrect relative path, or
for some other reason.
