I am unable to preview the form in VSD using IE8 or Firefox. I copied the required folder and php file to the same directory as my contact.html page. I am running the latest verison of VSD and Form Builder

Firefox gives me this message: Firefox can't find the file at /C:/Users/george/AppData/Local/Temp/vsd_tmpdir/julie form v1/julie form v1.html.

All works great when i upload everything to my webserver. I am not using S-Drive.

Here is my form on the webserver to show it does work.

Did you add the files to VSD and use VSD to ftp the files to the server or did you use another ftp client to upload your form files?:)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

I never added the files on VSD or used 'Add Files' from the VSD toolbar. I used another ftp client to load them to my web server and also copied them directly to the VSD folder on my C:Drive.

The web version works fine, i just cant preview anything within VSD so the only way to test within VSD is to upload and test on my server.

You'll need to add the files with the add files tool to preview with VSD.;)

I can add the php file using the "Add Files" but can't add the folder without doing the entire folder structure a file at a time and there are a lot of files and sub-directories. I already manually copied the folder within my VSD directory so why would i need to do it using the "Add Files"? Maybe i am missing something here???

I looked a little closer at the form code and see that all you need to to is change the iframe code to absolute.:)
Example: change this line.

src="myform/myform.html"

to this.
src="http://mydomain.com/myform/myform.html"

Seems the above is implying that the i need to upload the changes to my webserver in-order to preview it within VSD? So i am really back to testing it after it's uploaded..... Am i being dense here? I do appreciate the help

Yes you would have to upload your files to have a preview.:)
