Clearing Infopath Cache

When you publish new version of InfoPath or update certificate for the form, some users may still see the old version or have issues with new certificate. Clearing InfoPath Cache in users machine resolves this issue.

When user access an InfoPath form, it is usually cached in users machine. Whenever there is a new version of form available, this cache should be cleared and updated with new version. In some cases, it should be cleared manually.

Windows 7/8: C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\InfoPath\FormCache2\

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\InfoPath\FormCache2\Clearing Infopath cache
