Full Trust Forms - IP Filler Setting

A qRules user couldn’t open the qRules full trust form for mapping to lists on his computer after installing – he was getting this error:

InfoPath cannot open form "Form template: file:///C:\Program%20Files%20(x86)\Qdabra%20Software\Qdabra%20Rules%20Library%20(Trial%20Version)\Forms\Qdabra%20InfoPath%20to%20SharePoint%20List%20Tool.xsn The form template cannot be opened, because the system administrator has disabled opening form templates that require full trust."

He resolved this as follows -

Open InfoPath Filler > Form Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings > tick "Allow fully trusted forms to run on my computer"

Raise your hand if you didn't know about this setting - I didn't! :-)

Hi Hillary. Can you speak at all on the security considerations of allowing full-trust forms to be run on a computer when the form template has been digitally signed by a trusted author?

Currently full-trust forms are flat-out disabled on our workstations and this setting can only be changed by a system administrator. I'm trying to come up with a way to argue for allowing this feature.

Thanks very much!

Well - the reason full trust forms are sometimes a concern is because they can have code that can access all kinds of local resources. I can understand a policy that doesn't allow them. What is it you need to accomplish that requires full trust? I'd guess the only argument for them would be that the business need outweighs the risks.
