InfoPath Forms Library is missing: SharePoint 2007

Issue: The following computer running windows SharePoint Services does not contain the required InfoPath form template:
A generic form template will be used instead
InfoPath failed to publish because the default content type in the document library is not based on the Form content type.

Add a Form content type, and switch it over as the default content type. Only to discover SharePoint now publishes two different sets of columns in this list – one set for Forms, another set for Documents.
We noticed that Form Lib is missing on the site collection.
1.      Activating the Office SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features and Office SharePoint Server Enterprise Site features, helps in resolving the issue.
  • Go to -> Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Collection Features –> Office SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features -> Activate
  • Go to -> Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Features –> Office SharePoint Server Enterprise Site features -> Activate.
2.      If activating both of these features does not create the Form Library, you can try to execute the following ‘STSADM’ commands.  
·        STSADM.EXE -o deactivatefeature -filename IPFSSiteFeatures\feature.xml -force –url http://Amar-Infopathtest-xxxx
·        STSADM.EXE -o deactivatefeature -filename IPFSWebFeatures\feature.xml -force -url http://Amar-Infopathtest-xxxx
·        STSADM.EXE -o activatefeature -filename IPFSSiteFeatures\feature.xml -url http://Amar-Infopathtest-xxxx -force
·        STSADM.EXE -o activatefeature -filename IPFSWebFeatures\feature.xml -url http://Amar-Infopathtest-xxxx –force.
3.      If none of the above works, then try the last option to activate the ‘Team Collaboration List Features.’
·        Go to -> Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Features Site Features –> Team Collaboration Lists
If you have any queries/questions do let me know, I would be my pleasure to assist you with anything.

Symptoms: When choosing to edit a list in Microsoft SharePoint Datasheet View the list or view is read-only. You can observe this by seeing the message "This view is read-only." at the bottom of the datasheet

To turn off Content Approval in Microsoft SharePoint do the following:

1.In the List select Settings
2.Select List Settings
3.Select Versioning Settings
4.In the Content Approval section select Yes for "Require content approval for submitted items"

We have a KB available for the same.
