File this one under the "yet another useless error" category. I was trying to publish a form that I prevously had succesfully published to my development VPC. Every time I tried to publish it would say "the following url is not valid" when I entered the path to the sharepoint site.

Doing the standard search for the error yielded several potential solutions ranging from re-installing .NET, make sure there's a site at the root "/" and make sure there's a SSP.

Additional searching yielded the other option of stopping the "System Event Notification"  Check out this blog entry.

Don't you just love obscure error messages?

Make sure you have a site at root level. no need to stop system event notification. I have just created site at root level. when we create new site collection at time do not forget to create root level site, if u create root level site it avoid the error "the following url is not valid".
