The string contains unescaped backslashes even if they are treated as forward slashes. http:\\\host/path/file
The string represents a hierarchical absolute Uri and does not contain "://". www.contoso.com/path/file
The parser for the Uri.Scheme indicates that the original string was not well-formed. The example depends on the scheme of the URI.
