You’re receive an error message when publishing a InfoPath form to a SharePoint server with forms services enabled.
I received this error while working on a web application other than the default (port 80) SharePoint site on the server. For some reason when I created the new web application, which I verified was associated with an SSP, refused to render any InfoPath forms in a browser.
After lots of digging on Microsoft’s websites I cam up with the following solution. Good luck!
Login to your SharePoint server and run the following STSADM command (remember that STSADM.EXE is located in c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\bin\ an I recommend you add it to your PATH)
Run these commands while logged into your server:
* Windows Server 2008 users remember to run the command window as administrator
Run an IISReset and if that doesn’t work consider deactivating the features (web first and site second) then reactivating them (site first then web second).
To dissect this a bit, if you look underneath the hood all you’re doing is activating a feature that’s already on your server (assuming you’re running Enterprise and have an SSP created). Look in the features directory on your server and you’ll see the files you used to activate the forms services
C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\

This form template is browser-compatible, but it cannot be browser-enabled on the selected site., 10.0 out of 10 based on 4 ratings
