Error "The URL is not valid" after generating InfoPath form


After generating an InfoPath form in the Workflow Designer, generally through a task action, the following error might occur:

The URL is not valid.


Ensure that InfoPath services are enabled on the root site of the current Site Collection. This will allow the InfoPath form to publish from the Workflow Designer.

Error Code

The URL is not valid.

Additional Information

This error is caused by not having a site collection at the root URL of SharePoint.

Note that this is primarily an InfoPath issue, not an issue with the Nintex Workflow Designer. It can be replicated by doing the following:
  1. Open InfoPath Designer.
  2. Create a new form and choose the "SharePoint Form Library" template.
  3. Save the form.
  4. Choose to publish the form to a SharePoint Server.
  5. When you enter the URL to the site, it will show an error.
