This form cannot be opened in a Web browser. To open this form, use Microsoft InfoPath. --> I am not even using InfoPath?

Jump to solution

Hi all!

I am totally confused!

Here's what I do:

1. create new workflow

2. add 'request review' action to it

   3. add myself as the reviewer and task description 'test'

Now I publish it and open the task and I get the error : This form cannot be opened in a Web browser. To open this form, use Microsoft InfoPath.

I am not even using InfoPath?!

I use Nintex 2013. Can anyone help me??

OR did you select the Form Type as Infopath when creating the task action?

Hi, a bit more information:

- this happens in all libraries/lists in all workflows on this site, it doesn't on my other SharePoint-site!
So maybe some site-settings are wrong? I have no idea

It seemed that I changed something in the code of my content types.. I could not see the problem with my access privileges. Someone from the IT helped me though and saw a mistake in the code behind.


The solution for me was to delete the content types 'Nintex workflow task' etc. from my Task list and then add those again. I had to delete all my tasks to do this I think.
But now everything is working fine again.
