    Hello. I've got an API that I'm trying to test. The API returns specific comments on errors.

    Example:

    distance.out.of.range

    When querying the API in Chrome or Firefox, I see this XML.
    However, when querying with IE or with Powershell (both WebClient and WebRequest), I'm only able to see the "400" exception. I can't find the XML drilling down into the exception.
    Handling the exception with a try/catch is fine, but I'm missing out on understanding the specifics of the failed query. has anyone run into this before?

    Thanks,

    It's just how the software is handling it. Not sure there's much you can do, but your deep into a dev topic. You might get more expert help on this at StackOverflow.com. You're really dealing with fairly raw .NET, and there's a ton of folks there who do that. Sorry I don't know more myself!

    Thanks for replying, at least. If I find an answer, I'll find the appropriate forum here and post about it.
