In the piece of code below i get the error "Method 'send' of object 'IXMLHTTPRequest' failed : -2146697211" if i set the parameter "showInBrowser" to 0 in the xml sent in the request. Where as if i set it to 1, i get a good http responce back.

Any idea why this occurs?



Private Sub Command6_Click()

Dim req As New MSXML2.XMLHTTP30

' Specify the URI of the GetRandomNumber method

req.Open "POST", "http://888.217.203.154/application/cmti/SearchflowQueryXML.asp", False
 
' Set the HTTP Headers
req.setRequestHeader "HOST", "localhost"
req.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "text/xml"


Dim xmlstring As String
xmlstring = "<?xml version=" & Chr$(34) & "1.0" & Chr$(34) & " encoding=" & Chr$(34) & "utf-8" & Chr$(34) & "?>" & vbCrLf
xmlstring = xmlstring & "<SearchflowQuery ShowInBrowser=" & Chr$(34) & "0" & Chr$(34) & "><Authentication><Source>SSLConvey</Source><Password>age</Password><User>harnys</User></Authentication><GetSearches><ClientRef>abc123</ClientRef></GetSearches></SearchflowQuery>"


Debug.Print xmlstring
req.send xmlstring

Dim responseStr As String
responseStr = "Content-Type: " & req.getResponseHeader("Content-Type") & vbCrLf
responseStr = responseStr & "Content-Length: " & req.getResponseHeader("Content-Length") & vbCrLf
responseStr = responseStr & req.responseText & vbCrLf & req.responseBody & vbCrLf & req.statusText

 
Debug.Print responseStr

End Sub

Make sure that you have IE 5.0 or higher.
Try to use xmlHTTPServer object instead of XMLHTTP30

This issue has nothing to do with a browser at the moment. I am merely running the VB code.

Why will ServerXMLHTTP make any difference?
