Infopath form status showing installing while deployment in SharePoint 2010

In this post we will discuss how to solve when the infopath form shows status as installing in SharePoint 2010. Also you can check my previous posts on:

- Get icon for different file types in SharePoint 2010

- Create event receiver in Sandboxed solution is SharePoint

- Create an approval workflow in SharePoint Designer 2010

Sometimes when you upload an infopath form template in the central administration, it will stuck and shows installing status in the central administration. You can see this in the Central Administration -> Manage Form Templates.
The problem is the wsp related to the infopath has not been properly deployed. Check out this article to know more about how to deploy infopath form using PowerShell and STSADM command.


Open SharePoint 2010 central administration, then Go to System Settings -> Manage Farm Solution. Here check the deployment status for the wsp file. If the deployment status in Deploying (scheduled at date..) then Click the wsp and cancel the deployment.

Then go to Central Administration -> Solution Properties then Deloy the Solution again. This time it should be successful.

Once the wsp deployment completes then the infopath form will also deploy successfully.
