InfoPath Form is not displaying for SharePoint 2013

I have decided few times to write something every week or at least every month couple of my learning. But from the busy schedule it is becoming a item of prioritization. But this one is a very interesting post and we almost spent > 150 man hours [And $$$] to figure this out. So I thought to share with the world and SharePoint Geeks out there. And again it is not 100% necessary that it will help you but we were not able to find any article referring to this solution out there so decided to have it on my blog.

Problem: I have created multiple SharePoint 2013 Farms by the time I am writing this blog along with my team but this one is the unique we started facing it. Where SharePoint 2013 is not displaying the InfoPath form. We had tested couple of scenarios where it was failing as below.
1) While User was trying to publish InfoPath, it was failing.
2) We have created a SharePoint 2010 Approval Workflow and while workflow initiate while user goes for approving the item he/she was not able to get the form as it was not displaying the InfoPath Form.

Now surprisingly out of our 5 environment we were only seeing this behavior on most critical environment. :(

We tried all the ways whatever we can and blogs available out there to solve the problem, but at the last we end up reaching out to Microsoft for their help.

Solution: And after hours of long calls and troubleshooting it turned out to be a security patch issue mentioned here @ https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3118750

Which actually talks about uninstalling KB3098779 & KB3097997.

We uninstall both the KBs from our Windows 2012 R2 servers rebooted the system and we are done long hours and sleep paid off. :P
