Hi,

Whenever I calls the method: flickr.AuthGetFrob();

I will get an exception: Missing Signature (97). Can anyone assist me in solving this problem?

Thanks in advance,

You need to set the shared secret before using AuthGetFrob as it is a method which requires signing. I should really throw an exception if the shared secret has not been set but currently I don't.

I hope this helps.

Hi,

I'm also getting the 'Missing Signature (97)' exception, though I'm using flickr.AuthGetGrobAsync( (r) => {  } ); from the Silverlight version of Flickr.Net. Can you please advise me on what to do?

Thanks in advance,

Thank you for reporting this. There is a bug in the async auth methods which stops it working. Unfortunately in Silverlight you can't use the new authentication method yet.

I've uploaded the fix into the source code, and am in the process of updating the release DLLs.
