my flickr.net app worked until quite recently. I've updated my version of the Flickr.Net wrapper library, I'm guessing that Flickr have gone and changed something in their API.
I have a tag search facility. It works fine with one word search, but if you try to put in two words, or word1+word2, it returns the following:
Invalid response received (There is an error in XML document (3, 42).) (9998)
FlickrException: Invalid response received (There is an error in XML document (3, 42).) (9998)] FlickrNet.Flickr.Deserialize(String responseString) +151 FlickrNet.Flickr.GetResponse(Hashtable parameters, TimeSpan cacheTimeout) +833 FlickrNet.Flickr.GetResponseCache(Hashtable
parameters) +47 FlickrNet.Flickr.PhotosSearch(PhotoSearchOptions options) +1368 photolibrary.default.LoadPics(Object tags) +327 photolibrary.default.btnTagSearch_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) +34 System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button.OnClick(EventArgs
e) +108 System.Web.UI.WebControls.Button.System.Web.UI.IPostBackEventHandler.RaisePostBackEvent(String eventArgument) +57 System.Web.UI.Page.RaisePostBackEvent(IPostBackEventHandler sourceControl, String eventArgument) +18 System.Web.UI.Page.RaisePostBackEvent(NameValueCollection
postData) +33 System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain() +1273
I've managed to find out that the XML being returned that triggers the error is:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <rsp stat="ok"> <photos page="1" pages="0" perpage="500" total="" /> </rsp>
This is the code I use on the aspx page to get the search
Dim searchOptions As PhotoSearchOptions = New PhotoSearchOptions
searchOptions.TagMode = TagMode.AllTags
If Not IsNothing(tags) Then
searchOptions.Tags = tags
Dim flkrPhotos As Photos = flk.PhotosSearch(searchOptions)
and tags comes into the function ByVal from a textbox control.
Any help appreciated.

well I can't get this to fail at all at the moment, any search I run that returns 0 photos is setting the total to zero correctly, so it looks like it might have been a bug in Flickr.
If this IS still happening for you then could you post the exact tags you are trying to search for, as I've tried "word1 word2", "word1,word2", "word1+word" all of which work fine.
