InfoPath Form Services Missing from SharePoint Server 2010

I had an issue reported today where a user was trying to configure InfoPath Form services for a SharePoint 2010 Site. 

Normally there is a section in Central Administration under General Application Settings called InfoPath Forms Services. On our server the section was missing entirely.


The resolution for this is pretty simple. We simply need to install this feature as it does not appear to be installed by default.

  1. Login to Web Front end servers as an Admin.

  2. Open Administrative Command prompt.

  3. Change Directory, by running the command below. 

  4. cd "c:\program files\common files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\bin\"

  5. Run the command below to install the feature.

    “stsadm -o installfeature -name IPFSAdminWeb”

NOTE - If you receive a message that the feature is already installed but you do not see the feature on the "General Application Settings" page in central admin, activate the feature on central administration using the following command:

stsadm -o activatefeature -name IPFSAdminWeb -url http://sharepoint:8080
