Windows Live Search API SourceType News returns error RRS feed

  • Question




    since Friday September 26, 2008 I sometimes see the following message for SourceType News in my error log:


    System.InvalidOperationException: Client found response content type of 'text/html', but expected 'text/xml'. The request failed with the error message: -- An error occurred while processing your request.

    Reference #179.5fb63554.1222485743.b4ebcf7 --. at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.ReadResponse(SoapClientMessage message, WebResponse response, Stream responseStream, Boolean asyncCall) at System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapHttpClientProtocol.Invoke(String methodName, Object[] parameters) at com.msn.search.soap.MSNSearchService.Search(SearchRequest Request) at ____________.ProcessRequest(HttpContext context) at System.Web.HttpApplication.CallHandlerExecutionStep.System.Web.HttpApplication.IExecutionStep.Execute() at System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep(IExecutionStep step, Boolean& completedSynchronously)


    Can someone from Microsoft please explain why this happens?


    Thank you.
