You publish a workflow using SharePoint Designer 2010. When you attempt to run the workflow you see the following error:


“The form cannot be submitted because of an error”


Cause: This appears to be due to a recent Microsoft Office Security update (KB2553322).




  1. Remove InfoPath Update KB2553322 ( This step alone did not solve my issue. I had to proceed to the following steps.
  2. Republish the workflow as follows
    1. Open the Workflow in SharePoint Designer
    1. In the Ribbon click Initiation Form Parameters
    1. Click OK without changing anything
    1. Republish the workflow; you may see a warning indicating that the workflow has been customized.
    1. Save and Publish the Form
    1. Publish the Workflow
