Xamarin.Form UWP Local Machine can't connect to WebAPI/HttpClient but Android do RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had upgraded my VS2017 15.2 to VS2017 15.7.5 with use. I am working by Xamarin.Form with .Net Standard. In 15.2 my apps can connect to online WepAPI/HttpClient  and get data into 3 platforms Android, IOS, and UWP. But when I upgraded to VS2017 15.7, I can get data in all platforms except UWP Although there is no syntax error and the app started fine but no data from/to online WepAPI. I searched in the internet I found some solutions:

    1. enable Capabilities in Package manifest  of the UWP project, and check Internet (Client) and Private Networks(Client & Server).

    2. Cleaning the project.

    3. Increasing and Describing Targeting SDK.

    4. Installing all Windows SDK from VS_installer in individual components tab.

    But All these solutions doesn't work for me at all.

  • Hi,

    Since the problem is related to Xamarin.Form UWP, it is out of the scope of UWP forum. I suggest that you might need to ask about this in the official Xamarin Forum.
