Infopath Not Opening in Browser

Infopath Not Opening in Browser

Infopath Not Opening in Browser

(OP)
I have created an InfoPath form that I have published to a SharePoint site. But whenever I attempt to open it, it opens in the InfoPath Filler and if I open it on a computer that doesn't have InfoPath then I receive an error saying I need the filler. I want this to be distributed throughout a company that doesn't have InfoPath Filler on their computers so opening in a web browser would be the best option. How do I make the form open in the web browser? I have the file saved as a Web Browser template as well as changing the forms settings under Advanced Settings to open in browser but it does not. Please help

RE: Infopath Not Opening in Browser

It's got to be a file type and/or file location issue. Is the form saved to a SharePoint library or to a network or local drive? If network or local drive, try adding it to a SharePoint library. I have no way to test anything with my current job, b/c we don't use SharePoint at all. I'm just guessing at it, really, b/c I only used Infopath a handful of times to modify forms I setup within SharePoint. If you've gotten a solution otherwise, please post your solution in case someone else runs into the same problem.
