    this is my code

     CrmAuthenticationToken CRM_Token = new CrmAuthenticationToken();
                    CRM_Token.AuthenticationType = 0;
                    CRM_Token.OrganizationName = crmorgname;

                    CRMUpload.Url = crmlink;
                    CRMUpload.CrmAuthenticationTokenValue = CRM_Token;
              //CRMUpload.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(crmuser, crmpass,  crmdomain);
              CRMUpload.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
               CRMUpload.UnsafeAuthenticatedConnectionSharing = true;  

                    List  = new List();
                    ColumnSet Col = new ColumnSet();
                    Col.Attributes = new String[] { "pertyid","list"};

                    ConditionExpression condExp = new ConditionExpression();
                    condExp.AttributeName = "list";
                    condExp.Operator = ConditionOperator.Equal;
                    condExp.Values = new String[] { "true" };

                    FilterExpression filter = new FilterExpression();
                    filter.FilterOperator = LogicalOperator.And;
                    filter.Conditions = new ConditionExpression[] { condExp };
                    QueryExpression Query = new QueryExpression();
                    Query.EntityName = EntityName.perty.ToString();
                    Query.ColumnSet = Col;
                    Query.Criteria = filter;

                    BusinessEntityCollection ECollection = CRMUpload.RetrieveMultiple(Query);// I am Getting Error at this line

                    foreach (perty _Instance in ECollection.BusinessEntities)

  • Hi,

    What is CRM Server Url are you passing (what is the value of crmlink) ?  try use the URL in internet explorer and see if it is a valid URL.

  • Try to check with this code(from SDK),

    replace Org name and Service URL

    // Set up the CRM Service.
    CrmAuthenticationToken token = new CrmAuthenticationToken();
    // You can use enums.cs from the SDK\Helpers folder to get the enumeration for Active Directory authentication.
    token.AuthenticationType = 0;
    token.OrganizationName = "AdventureWorksCycle";

    CrmService service = new CrmService();
    service.Url = "http://<servername>:<port>/mscrmservices/2007/crmservice.asmx";
    service.CrmAuthenticationTokenValue = token;
    service.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;

  • Hi,

    Try passing credentials as mentioned below:

    CRMUpload.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential(crmuser, crmpass, crmdomain);

    Although bit more illogical but try creating RetrieveMultipleRequest and passing into crmService.Execute() instead of CrmService.RetrieveMultiple method (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb929303.aspx)
