This page is causing all kinds of problems.  Throws ASP.NET error 1309 in event log, and webpage display 'Application Error'.  Any ideas on what might be wrong with this?

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<html xmlns="" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>HttpWebRequest Example</title>
<body runat="server">

    dim url
    dim xmlhttp
    url = ""&request.querystring("id")&"/?key=xxxxxxxx"
    xmlhttp = CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.3.0") ("GET", url, false)
    xmlhttp.send ()
    Response.ContentType = "text/xml"
    Response.Write (xmlhttp.responseXML.xml)
    Response.write (xmlhttp.responseText)

Thanks for the reply.  Unfortunately, my error message doesn't have anything to do with the serialization problem.  Please see attached file for full error in event log.

can you check you have correctly getting the value from query string

 url = ""&request.querystring("id")&"/?key=xxxxxxxx"

try printing the url and check once.

Can you do the following and run the page again?

In Internet Explorer goto Tools-->Internet options-->Advanced and UNcheck the entry called "Show friendly HTTP error messages"

Now run the page again and report the exact error you are getting.

Also try removing the parentheses from the .open line: "GET", url, false

Open in new window
