256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows registry


You open a Microsoft Office InfoPath 2007 form template in Design View, and then you click Permission. If you click OK in the Permission dialog box, InfoPath 2007 crashes.


This issue occurs because the form template file is IRM-protected and the AdminTemplatePath registry key has not been set on the computer.


Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.

To work around this issue, set the AdminTemplatePath registry key on the computer before you try to open the IRM-protected InfoPath form template file in the InfoPath Designer. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
  2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:


  3. On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click String Value.
  4. Type AdminTemplatePath, and then press ENTER.
  5. Double-click the AdminTemplatePath value, type UserProfile\Application Data\Microsoft\DRM\Templates in the Value data field, and then click OK.

    For example, type C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data\Microsoft\DRM\Templates

    Note If you use the %UserProfile% environment variable, you may not avoid this issue.
