How do I publish infopath forms to Microsoft windows sharepont service 3.0 (the Free Version) without having to purchase infopath and a ton of licenses for all users?

I would like to create forms in infopath for our employees instead of using these old word and excel documents we have. So I purchase MS office 2010 pro for the infopath feature and downloaded the free version of MS Windows sharepoint services 3.0. But I can't seem to publish to it. I am trying to avoid buying infopath for ever employee just to fill this form out from time to time. I also dont want to have to purchases the full blown sharepoint just to redo and manage new documents. I would just like to makes a few forms and publish them to a website so our people can fill them out and to have better records of those documents. Without having to purchase mass licenses for every user. Just like a more cost effective way?

Warren

InfoPath forms cannot be deployed to the Windows sharepoint services 3.0. You need the Infopath Forms Services or the Enterprise version of SharePoint to deploy Infopath to the Server (Browser based forms). Otherwise each user will need to have InfoPath installed locally.

Looks like MS has stopped selling as an independent product (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Office_Forms_Server) But i will suggest to confirm this with your MS Licensing agent.

In that case, MOSS (enterprise version) is your best bet.

Thanks guys.  :-(

MOSS per user just would cost us too much cash. I just want to make and publish documents in infopath.
