Infopath form upload, stuck on installing, upgrading etc

Problem: This is a new issue that suddently happened after I published a form with databinding issues (trying to use dynamic links). After going to 'Manage Form Templates' in Central Administration, Application Management, the form is stucked on upgrading. Checked Operations -> Timer job definitions, and status, try to delete the job and redo to no avail.

Solution: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN>stsadm.exe -o execadmsvcjobs

Infopath browser form - test from client, doesn't see properties show up on sharepoint list/library

Problem: when testing from the client with the infopath form, submitting to sharepoint library, only see the name column, none of the properties seemed to be populated/promoted. On the repair documents/relink documents page, shows up as the 'Form' content type instead of the 'Investment' content type. (Investment is the content type of the published form.)

Soln: Steps to resolve: check the site content type, make sure the default content type is Investment, not Form. Reset IIS, resubmit from client should see the properties.
