  • If you are able to access Geocode SOAP services using 1.1, then Route should also work accordingly.

    check the article The requirement is .Net3.0 framwork but you can follow the sample instructions on 1.1 for Route service

  • I do recall there being issues using some of the SOAP services in .NET 1.1. That framework was never supported. I recommend using the REST services as they have more features, and are faster.

  • Hi Hemant,

    I have already tried the code in the above URL, Geocode works fine but other services are not working.

  • Hi Richard,

    Thanks for suggesting REST services. I want to use this service in my server side code (c#). Do I have to make a HttpRequest to the REST URL or is there any better option ?

    Can you please give me reasons why SOAP services are not available in .net 1.1 or any link to any post which explains this?

  • The REST service is actually just a normal WebClient call that you can make. You would only need to use HttpRequest if you had something to POST to the url.


    The SOAP services are built on WCF, which was not introduced until .NET 3. Don't quote me on this, but that's the likely issue.
