We are currently using version 5.6.3. We are able to connect to some of our services, but others are crashing Visual Cron. I can successfully pull up and use the services in WCF Test Client and in our applications. The services do work. However, a handful of them are giving the following error when trying to connect:

Connection failed with error 'Socket error: Unable to write data to the transport connection: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host.'

In the error detail, I see:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m)
at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)

There is nothing significant in the logs. I am at a loss. Does anyone have any insight into what is going on? Thank you.

Hi,

this is a bug that has been fixed in later versions. It concerns reading a special value from the web service Task.

Thank you. I was afraid that was going to be the answer. I will upgrade and see what happens.

Just upgraded to 6.1.2 and am still experiencing issues. In the main settings I am selecting utf-8. When trying to connect, it says somethign about metadata contains a reference that cannot be resolved. Content type application/soap+xml; charset=utf-8 was not supported by the service.

My binding is using text-encoding utf-8.

If I keep the encoding as the default: Windows-1252, my original problem occurs and Visual Cron shuts down.

Any advice? Thank you.

If you can post service wsdl here it would be great. Otherwise you can send information to support@visualcron.com so we can test it in debug mode.
