What I tried.
1. Reactivate site collection feature "CrossSiteLookup"
2. Update CrossSiteLookup from version 1.4.3 to 1.4.4
3. Redeploy farm feature
3.1 Deactivate site collection feature on all site collections
3.2 Repair CrossSiteLookup
3.3 Activate site collection feature on all site collections

Nothing helped.

What could be the next steps?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Jens,

There was an issue after SharePoint update, so we've published a fix some time ago. Please, download and install the latest version of Forms Designer for SP 2013/16/19. Version number will NOT change (as the fix is very minor) and file size is the same as before, but the update is included in the new file.

Start the installer and select Repair option. Then, completely clear the browser's cache. Might also need to update .NET on the server.
