Hi all,


I am using visual C#.NET to develop a windows application to access flickr photos. I am using Flickr.NET libraries to access photos from flickr. I followed the tutorial given by "samjudson". I debugged it and return no error. But when i tried to search for photos, It returned an error "The remote server returned an error: (417) Expectation failed". The code line the message appears is the following code.

 PhotoCollection microsoftPhotos = flickr.PhotosSearch(searchOptions);

I am using windows 7 64bit OS.

I've never seen this issue before, but I did come across this post on the Microsoft forum:

So it might have something to do with a proxy you are using perhaps?
