How to remove a corrupted InfoPath start form?

I got an NW2010 list workflow that I exported from our dev farm, and imported to our prod farm. The workflow contains an InfoPath start form. The form itself is very simple; it only contains three start variables on it.


I have published the workflow on our prod box, but the InfoPath form itself is apparently corrupted (complains the form contains features that cannot be published. Nonsense, but whatever...) If I change the workflow to use the default form instead of the InfoPath form, the workflow functions properly. I want the InfoPath form, though, because I use it to post instructions for the customers, and also, it just looks better.


The problem is, there seems to be no way to delete that corrupted InfoPath start form. No "New", no "Delete", etc. It's just there. Before I try ripping it out via SharePoint Designer, I ask the Nintex universe, how do you go about removing a corrupted InfoPath Start Form?

You can try to delete it from the buried files in SharePoint.

If you open your list in the explorer view you can navigate to the WF folder and find the info path.

Hope that helps

I forgot about this post! Indeed, that is what I did in the end, I used SPD to mine into the “All Files” section to find the offending InfoPath file. I deleted it, and a new version was autogenerated in its place.
