Okay, I installed Visual Studio .NET today - I bought it to make my life easier but it is just giving me a headache. I'm attempting to do something very simple - get the source from a webpage. If I can get the source I'll clean it up and turn it into an auto-updated for a program I want to write. I am coding in VB .NET. I am using this function: Code: Private Function getSource(ByVal URL As String) As String 'Set URL Dim objResponse As Net.WebResponse Dim objRequest As Net.WebRequest objRequest = Net.HttpWebRequest.Create(URL) objResponse = objRequest.GetResponse 'Grab data from URL Dim sr As System.IO.StreamReader = New System.IO.StreamReader(objResponse.GetResponseStream()) 'return the source Return sr.ReadToEnd() End Function When I make a call to it I get this error: Code: An unhandled exception of type 'System.NotSupportedException' occurred in system.dll Additional information: The ServicePointManager does not support proxies of file scheme. All I am doing is plopping that function down then making a call to it - I'm not adding any controls or references (should I be?) I've tried everything I can think of but it just won't work. Any ideas? This is really important 'cause I'm going to burn this software tomorrow.
