I have been developing a custom form. After a recent edit I have been unable to open the form for further editing. The form starts to open, it's outline appears, but the litttle revolving timer just continues to run and the form never finishes opening up.

At first I assumed I had inadvertently introduced some kind of a loop into the code, but I tried opening the form while holding down the Shift key and I still have the problem. All the time it is trying to open, one core of my CPU is running at full tilt, so something weird is going on.

Any idea what I might have done here?

This is crazy! I can create a new item based on the form, and everything is fine. Then I can even successfully select "Edit this form" from within the new item. However, if I then publish the form after editing I can't still can't open it for editing from the Outlook Tools > Forms > Design a Form menu option.

Did you publish it with a new name? The form cache might be corrupt. If it works with a new name, then it's the cache.

That could be it. But I tried emptying the cache and it didn't help. Is there something else I should do?
