SharePoint 2010 The form cannot be rendered. This may be due to a misconfiguration of the Microsoft SharePoint Server State Service. For more information, contact your server administrator.

You may receive this error when trying to publish a page in SharePoint 2010:

The form cannot be rendered. This may be due to a misconfiguration of the Microsoft SharePoint Server State Service. For more information, contact your server administrator.

You would need to install the ‘State Service’ via the Configuration wizard in Central Administration or via PowerShell.

To configure the State Service by using Windows PowerShell:
1. Click Start, Administrative Tools, Windows PowerShell Modules.
2. In Windows PowerShell, type $serviceApp = New-SPStateServiceApplication -Name “State Service”
3. Create a State Service database and associate it with a service application, by typing New-SPStateServiceDatabase -Name “StateServiceDatabase” -ServiceApplication $serviceApp
4. Create a State Service Application Proxy and associate it with the service application by typing New-SPStateServiceApplicationProxy -Name “State Service” -ServiceApplication $serviceApp -DefaultProxyGroup

(You can use another proxy group if necessary by changing the DefaultProxyGroup parameter)
