Exporting Admin Approved #InfoPath Forms. #SP2007 to #SP2010

Just a quick blog to remind myself for some research I am doing.

We need to export existing Administrator Approved InfoPath forms and I came across this article:

In short, use STSADM to export a CAB and reimport using PowerShell.

As it is an older article soooo… just in case I lose it.  The details are below:

Admin approved form from MOSS 2007 get deployed as features within the 12 features hive under folders named with GUIDs. These need special handling to be moved to SharePoint 2010. The following steps need to be performed.

using stsadm -o exportipfsadminobjects command export the IP forms to a CAB file.

c) Check if the files are imported correctly by browsing to the Central Admin –> Manage Infopath Form Templates.

 

Other useful resources I found in my research on this topic:
