When using Web Services API on Windows 7 Pre-Beta build 6801.0, you may get the following error in:
Failed to retrieve the automatic proxy settings.
The proxy could not process the request.
There is a work around to the issue. Here is what you have to do:
· Open Internet Options from Tools menu in the Internet Explorer.
· Switch to Tab Connections and click on the button LAN settings.
· On the dialog that IE should open for you
o Uncheck “Automatically detect settings”
o Uncheck “Use automatic configuration script”.
o If you have a proxy server setup on the LAN, check “Use a proxy server for your LAN” and manually specify address and port of this server.
