I downloaded the userform module and followed the install instructions as
listed in the readme file.

After the userform folder was extracted and renamed I copied it to the
root of my site and ran the

finnished with a web server not responding.

I then ran the and the site appeared
to be back to normal but the user forms did not install.

What other things could I look at doing to get this resolved.

Thanks for the assistance!!!!

Please put the site into dev mode so you can see the actual error and the trace, not just 'Website Error'.

Thanks Willr for looking at this with me!!

In looking at the error I believe that this is a sql permission error so I then granted more access to the database for the account. I then ran the again and it seemed to complete just fine. I log in to edit the test site again and the form selection was now there but now when I create a new for page it is grey with no controls to do anything.

I will keep working on the issue and if anyone has a suggestion I would be great-full!!

It will be grey if you do not have permission to edit the form. Make sure under the access tab that you have the correct permissions to edit the page.

I did not get the option to choose who could edit the page so for the past few hours I updated to the latest version of SS and Userforms and it just started working for me.

Going forward what would be correct sql permissions that I should assign to the db account so that I do not have this issue?

Willr I really appreciate you assistance in this!
