This form template is browser-compatible, but it cannot be browser-enabled on the selected site

Check if the default “Form Templates” option in appearing under “View all site contents” page. If it is not enabled by default, then you can follow this following steps.

If "Office SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Features" is enabled but we don't see the default "Form Templates" on the "View all site contents" page, then you should use the following steps.

  • Make sure they have backup of everything.

  • Opened the site http://<your site url> in SharePoint Designer.

  • Select the root URL and click FILE >> NEW >> SharePoint Content

  • Choose Document Library >> Form Library

  • Under options type the name as “FormServerTemplates” and it will create the content.

  • Now right click on “FormServerTemplate” and open “Properties”

  • On settings Tab change the name to “Form Templates” and uncheck the option “Use a template for new documents”

  • Click OK

  • Now you should see “Form Templates” on the view all site content page.

  • You should be able to publish the InfoPath form with "Enable this form to be filled out by using a browser."
