Problem with MapPoint Service RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I get the following errors while I try to invoke Mappoint Service.(http://staging.mappoint.net/standard-30/mappoint.wsdl.) 

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Exception Details: System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request. --> The root element is missing.

                                                    OR

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

    Exception Details: System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.

    I have observed that this is not a consistent behaviour as well! The  web service works fine as well sometimes and I get the desired results. But when I continously try to access the same,it fails between consequent requests.

    I checked a few forums and  observed that people faced these problems when they generally accessed some remote web services  through a proxy server and a firewall. I also work in similar conditions. I even tried testing my code outside the proxy server. It still fails.Also,I tried the following method of overriding the Webrequest  as suggested by some forums.But this does not work as well.

    protected override System.Net.WebRequest GetWebRequest(Uri uri)
            {

                System.Net.HttpWebRequest webRequest = (System.Net.HttpWebRequest)base.GetWebRequest(uri);
                webRequest.KeepAlive = false;
                webRequest.ProtocolVersion = HttpVersion.Version10;
                return webRequest;
            }

    I am just adding a web reference to the above URLand invoking methods on them. Also, I am using the SDK samples for Map point.So, I do not think there is any error from my client side. Could this be a limitation with these web services or do I need to do any settings from my end to solve this issue?Please help!

    Thanks in Advance!

  • are you trying to connect through a proxy server? you might want to check that and enable proxy on your WSE settings file.

  • You certainly are allowed to upgrade your machine.     Would you please try phone activating?  You can get started with phone activation by typing "slui.exe 4" in the search field in the Start Menu and pressing Enter.  Please speak with a customer service representative when you're given the option.  The phone activation process takes about 6 minutes

  • Following the instructions of the automated phone activation system, I was not prompted with the opportunity to speak to a person, thus could not solve the problem. The machine just repeatedly queried me for numbers which I entered, then it informed me that the product ID was currently in use and that I should purchase another! What number am I supposed to press to get in touch with a person?

    Thank you for the assistance. Through (mis)fortune, I was able to solve the problem.

     

    Since I accidentally misentered one number in the automated telephone activation prompt, I was directed (finally) to a human correspondent, who was able to address the issue and give me an activation code.
