  • retry while logged in only with my Hotmail (live.ca) Live ID.


    This has finally worked.   I.e., it reproduced the error and created a subscription which didn't work for 2 hours then finally started working.   No extra authentication required.   However, by that time I had probably started doing other things that could have changed the result too, in particular started using WLMail Feeds with my other feeds.   The new feed was showing there when I opened WLMail Feeds but was empty.   So, in a way it may have relied on my first workaround.   If I can remember to start another test before I have to leave my computer unattended for more time I can try that too.

  • Ok, I repro'd this yesterday once, then not again and I can't get a repro. I've tried being signed in, signed out, etc. Would it be possible for you to get a fiddler trace you could zip up to skydrive? This would really help us out? Or if there is some client event log info from outlook, maybe when it choked on the rss?

    What is a Fiddler Trace? I will see about enabling logging in outlook.

  • Enabling logging in outlook does not provide any details as to why adding the RSS feed fails with the error message above, for that matter there is nothing logged at all about this failure.

     

    I don’t know any Office 2010 MVPs to ask them about how to enable verbose logging of the RSS portion. Maybe you can ask the Office team how I can get verbose logging enable to see exactly why this is failing.

  • Fiddler is a tool you install used for debugging purposes. Basically, it captures all the outgoing/incoming requests so we can analyze them. It is here: http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/  It's widely used for debugging various http applications. My guess is there's something odd about the request/result that is sometimes looking wrong to the client. If you could run fiddler and save all the output, zip it up to skydrive that'd really help.

  • Still looking into this, no eta for a fix. I thought I knew what was going on but was wrong. The fiddler you sent showed a http 302 on the rss request, I don't see that. So we'll have to keep working on it.

    For that you don't need Outlook.   That repro's using IE9 as soon as I try to click on Subscribe...   It worked once before that.  Perhaps you have a bad server for that case?  Now I can't even get it in InPrivate Browsing mode.   I was going to test to see if WLMail could be used as an alternative to testing with Outlook but to do that I would need to be able to subscribe to the feed not just get it.  

    FYI

    Too weird.   I didn't close my InPrivate Browsing mode window (apparently).   Sometime later (apparently) the normal feed worked.   Now (somehow) WLMail (and Ctrl-g in IE) are showing that I am subscribed?   "Repro" this!   ; )

    You are right, I can repo it in IE 9 too.

     

    lol, Who know maybe MS forums servers doesn't like Canadians. :-)

    Are you still looking into this? Is it filed as a bug? If so, then that's probably the answer here. After all, not all answers are what we want them to be.

    Thanks!

    Still repros.   Workaround:  use  WLMail.  It has been updating its cache for this feed since I first reported it.

    Note:  new version of  IE9 today:   Internet Explorer 9.0.3 (KB2586448)

    @ Brent


    Previously you said that you could repro.   It's possible that the 302 is just an effect of using Fiddler.   It's a proxy and the redirect is to HTTPS.

    BTW I have found out that there is another workaround:  after the the initial error in IE9 the subscription worked (e.g. I can find it listed under Ctrl-g), so then I was able to use right-click Properties on that to give the scheduled feedreader my authentication.   Then, this morning I found the feed was "working."   YMMV.

    ICIM my normal authentication is not a Hotmail Live ID and that is what would have been current at the time that I tried to make the subscription.   I suppose I could retry while logged in only with my Hotmail (live.ca) Live ID.   Another difference with that test would be that there would be no MVP association with the logged in account.   For that matter there would be no NNTP bridge association either.   I'm not sure about whether I have previously used it to post on any of these forums, especially with TechNet or MSDN.  I do know that I have used it with Answers.  That's what forced me to change my user name to post with my MVP-associated Live Id.
