Having problems with the form uploader

I'm not able to use the form uploader as the program does not allow me to select a file. I can browse and choose a file, if I select a file with a wrong extension it gives me the correct error message. But after selecting a valid file, nothing ever shows up on the form uploader program. The upload form button is never active as no file is ever allowed to be chosen. I also tried to configure the server settings first, then choose a file and this also fails.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Open the FormUploader and try and choose a .xml file
  2. Nothing ever appears as selected even after the file is choosen
  3. The Upload Form button is never available since the form isn't added

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
ODK FormUploader v1.3.2 Production.jar & ODK FormUploader v1.2.2 Production.jar both fail.
Running on Windows 7 64bit. Updated java. Also tried on Windows Xp Pro.
Both do not allow a file to be selected.

Hopefully a dumb question.... Did you configure the server? I.e., press
the 'Configure...' button to specify the server that you want to upload the
form to?

Only after the server is configured will the 'Upload Form' button become
enabled.

I guess I didn't see the step that you need to convert the .xls files with the converter online. I was directly saving the files as .xml files in Excel. Now the selection and upload to our server is working! Thanks, and sorry for the problem.
