  ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback = New System.Net.Security.RemoteCertificateValidationCallback(AddressOf ValidateRemoteCertificate)
            Dim Request As HttpWebRequest = CType(WebRequest.CreateDefault(New Uri(HostUrl & "GenerateReportNow")), HttpWebRequest)
            Request.Method = "PUT"
            'Request.ContentType = "text/xml"
            Request.Headers.Add("Content-Type", "text/xml")
            Request.Headers.Add("Authorization", "BASIC " & Convert.ToBase64String(System.Text.Encoding.Default.GetBytes(UserName & ":" & Secret)))
            Request.Headers.Add("ReportName", "Order")
            Request.Headers.Add("NumberOfDays", "1")


            Dim _Encoding As New ASCIIEncoding()
            Dim ContentData As Byte() = _Encoding.GetBytes(String.Empty)
            Request.ContentLength = ContentData.Length

            Using RequestStream As Stream = Request.GetRequestStream()
                RequestStream.Write(ContentData, 0, ContentData.Length)
                RequestStream.Close()
            End Using

            Dim RetrunContent As String = String.Empty

            ' make the Request
            Using Response As WebResponse = Request.GetResponse()
                ' display the response
                Using ReceiveStream As Stream = (CType(Response, HttpWebResponse)).GetResponseStream()
                    Using ReadStream As StreamReader = New StreamReader(ReceiveStream, Encoding.UTF8)
                        RetrunContent = String.Format("{0}", ReadStream.ReadToEnd())
                    End Using
                End Using

Try modifying the value instead of adding like:

Request.ContentType = "text/xml"

Hello,
Thanks for your input.
I have had it like before: Request.ContentType = "text/xml"
Their API guide had ("Content-Type", "text/xml") , so I have amended but that did not work either.
Any other suggestion please?
Thanks

Try commenting out all the headers.add calls and uncomment 1 by 1 to see which one is causing the issue.

I meant any header with Add that is throwing error must be replaced by property assignment.
