We recently updated to SharePoint 2010, and I am trying to update an InfoPath form that is tied to an existing form library. The InfoPath form I am using is 2010 and I am able to update it the old way, and Quick Publish it, but the new feature would be nice to be able to use as well.
When I click on the 'Customize Form' button in the ribbon, I receive the following error:
"InfoPath cannot generate a form template for the SharePoint list."
"Customizing the form for this SharePoint list is not supported."

As far as I know ,you can only see the Customize Form button for SharePoint lists in SharePoint 2010 . For SharePoint Form library ,you will need to open the copy of the template and make the changes .Then republish the form to SharePoint form library to use .
- After you create the form and publish it to SharePoint Form library .You will need to save a copy to local drivers before publishing .
- Close InfoPath designer and reopen it again .Open the local copy of the template and update it .
- After all the changes ,publish the form to SharePoint Form Library .
When customize form for SharePoint lists ,you can either click ‘Customize Form ’ button in the ribbon or you can create a new form template in InfoPath designer .
- New >SharePoint list .
- Enter the site URL .Then you can either create a new list or choose form the existing lists .
- After all the changes you can quick publish the form back to SharePoint list .
