  • More data...
    I've get an appId typing "http://localhost" in the final url input, and leaving empty the domain name.
    But, but, but... when I test the application the result is: "Invalid value for AppID in request"!!!!

    Is it because I make the request from a service/console application??

    Thanx again!!

  • Hi.


    What kind of app id do you want? If you want to get an application id for Live Search API, you can get at here,

    http://search.msn.com/developer (but, now can't access)

    I will ad my vote to the frustration: how do we register for app-id's ? Both http://search.msn.com/developer and http://search.live.com/developer pages (referenced by the Getting Started article) does not exist!


    I'm talking about the appid key required to do requests to the Live Search api.

  • ok, I figured it out. Had to make sure I was signed out from Live and then go to http://search.live.com/developer. Weirdest thing...

  • First of all, thanx for answer...

    Both url are currently unavailable for me (maybe people from usa can acces, but I don't <<http://www.bokebb.com/dev/english/2034/posts/203418604.shtml>>). I've tryied even to change my IE configuration, etc, but still being imposible.

    The other cuestion, is: what kind of app id's I'm getting?
    To get the app id's commented before, I go to the 'Live Id Page' <<
    https://msm.live.com/app/manage.aspx>> and click on "Register an application" from the 'Application Center' group menu.

    Are these id's valids to conect to live search api??

    Well, that's all at the moment. Sorry the color change, and I apologise my English.

    Regards &... thanx again!

  • I accessed the pages from Norway so it should'nt be restricted to the US (why would they??). Have you tried my "sign out from Live" trick? Go to for instance www.live.com and make sure you sign out, then go to http://search.live.com/developer. Weird as it sounds, this solved the problem for me.


    And for the id's, you should not confuse appid for Live ID API and Live Search API. These are two different services and have separate types of appids.

  • Koperniko,


    The URL, http://msn.live.com/app, is for Live ID SDKs. Those application IDs can't use for Live Search API.


    I can't access a developer site for Live Search, too.

  • Thanx to solve the problem about the difference between Live Id and Live search.

    But, I'm still 'closed' in getting the app id accesing to <<http://search.live.com/developer>> because the url doesn't work, neither trying the 'sign out' trick, neither the 'change ie language' trick.

    Has somebody a 'definitive' trick???

  • I'm also having trouble accessing http://search.live.com/developer. Got through briefly once, but then it put me into a loop of failed logins before giving up. Now I just get page not found.

    Any idea if this is a transient problem or is it permanently bust? Need to knock something up quick and don't want to waste time F5ing this page.

  • Try to use http://search.live.com/developer?mkt=en-us - there is a bug with the non-US market detection
