    I’m working on a “local installer” installation of DFFS v4.4.3.65 on Sharepoint Foundation 2013 to upgrade from a way old version (3.3!), but I’m encountering an error after creating the web part page used for the install. I’m attaching a screenshot of it.

    Under “DFFS Installer v1.1.0.6 – August 02, 2018” ribbon, I get the error:

    Getting all lists in this site…

    Unexpected response from server. The status code of response is ‘0’. The status text of response is ”.

    I put the DFFS folder from the ZIP into a form library in the root of the site labeled ‘SPJS’. I used a web part page, not a wiki. Installer page is at: http://sharepointsite/SPJS/DFFS_Installer.aspx

    Web part is referencing: /SPJS/DFFS/installer/Installer_CEWP_code.html

    ——————-
    Forum posts didn’t show anything for this. My Google-fu only found items pointing to resources being a problem on the SharePoint server. That is a non-starter, as resources are running at about 15% usage at any give time. I rebooted the server for good measure.

    Any of you wonderful folks have any ideas?

    You write that you:

    put the DFFS folder from the ZIP into a form library in the root of the site labeled ‘SPJS’.

    Is the SITE named SPJS or is the DOCUMENT LIBRARY named SPJS? – the latter is correct.

    Please hit F12 to bring up the developer tools ant look at the Console tab when you reload the page – any errors there?

    The DOCUMENT LIBRARY is named SPJS.

    Good call on the Developer Console. In Firefox, there are no errors, but in Chrome there are.

    Hi,
    I haven’t seen this behavior before, but I Googled “_windows/default.aspx?ReturnUrl=” and found (among other hits) this:
    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/70959200-c2f7-4433-82a9-04db1cefeff3/sharepoint-custom-form-unexpected-redirecting-to-windowsdefaultaspx?forum=sharepointdevelopment

    It looks like there might be an issue with the authentication on your web app.

    Let me know if you are able to figure it out.

    PS: I deleted one of the attachments so the URL of the site is not revealed.

    Thanks for removing that, Alexander.

    I was looking at the same exact article earlier. That didn’t help though.

    Done a few dozen things since then, but in the end – UPDATES.

    KB2768001 got me right. I was clearly missing an update, and this roll-up got me in the right place. I’m not longer getting the error I had above.

    I’m now going to use your method to install a “custom version”, so I can upgrade my current form properly.

    Thanks!

    I’m glad you were able to sort it out.
