I get this error when I try to publish my form (from Infopath designer) to a form library (created during publish) of a SharePoint 2010 instance:

Infopath cannot save the following form: http://[URL]

A device attached to the system is not functioning.

Everything is OK when I publish on my local sandbox.

My account is a member of the Site Collection administrators group.

Any idea what could be wrong?

Are you publishing from Windows XP? – Gennady Vanin Геннадий Ванин Jul 9 '12 at 16:09
No, it's Windows 7 SP1 x64. – Stéphane Bebrone Jul 10 '12 at 6:28

We finally nailed it. WebDAV was not enabled on the IIS website.
