hello again
i need your help
i made a simple app that calls a webmethod and gets a json string as response
everything worked fine up untill yesterday when suddenlly it stop working for no reason
when the code tries to get the response the message i get is
"A first chance exception of type 'System.Net.WebException' occurred in System.dll"

what i dont understand is why did it stop working in both the form app i made and a dll that i use to a different project the code and libraries used in both of them are exacly the same and no change was made for the last 3 months
here is the code

Imports System.Net
Imports System.IO
Imports System.Text
Imports Newtonsoft.Json
Imports System.Web

Public Class Form1

    Public Class Get_all_closed_bills_class
        Property ClientToken As String
        Property AccessToken As String
        Property StartUtc As String
        Property EndUtc As String
    End Class

    Public Function Get_all_closed_bills(Request As String,
                                        Username As String,
                                        Password As String,
                                        AccessToken As String,
                                        ClientToken As String,
                                        StartUtc As String,
                                        EndUtc As String)
        Dim strRequest As String = Request
        Dim strJsonData As String
        Dim objhttpWebRequest As HttpWebRequest
        Dim obj_Get_all_closed_bills As New Get_all_closed_bills_class

        obj_Get_all_closed_bills.ClientToken = ClientToken
        obj_Get_all_closed_bills.AccessToken = AccessToken
        obj_Get_all_closed_bills.StartUtc = StartUtc
        obj_Get_all_closed_bills.EndUtc = EndUtc

        strJsonData = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(obj_Get_all_closed_bills, Newtonsoft.Json.Formatting.Indented)

            Dim MyCredentials As System.Net.NetworkCredential
            MyCredentials = New System.Net.NetworkCredential(Username, Password)
            Dim httpWebRequest = DirectCast(WebRequest.Create(strRequest), HttpWebRequest)
            httpWebRequest.Credentials = MyCredentials
            httpWebRequest.ContentType = "application/json"
            httpWebRequest.Method = "POST"

            Using streamWriter = New StreamWriter(httpWebRequest.GetRequestStream())
            End Using
            objhttpWebRequest = httpWebRequest
        Catch ex As Exception
            Console.WriteLine("Send Request Error[{0}]", ex.Message)
            Return Nothing
        End Try

        Return GetResponse(objhttpWebRequest)

    End Function

    Private Function GetResponse(ByVal httpWebRequest As HttpWebRequest) As String
        Dim strResponse As String = "Bad Request:400"
            Dim httpResponse = DirectCast(httpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)
            Using streamReader = New StreamReader(httpResponse.GetResponseStream())
                Dim result = streamReader.ReadToEnd()
                strResponse = result.ToString()
            End Using
        Catch ex As Exception
            Console.WriteLine("GetResponse Error[{0}]", ex.Message)
            Return ex.Message
        End Try
        Return strResponse

    End Function

    Private Sub btnRetrieve_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnRetrieve.Click
        Dim strResponse As String

        ' request 
        ' username
        ' password
        ' AccessToken
        ' ClientToken
        ' StartUtc
        ' EndUtc
        'strResponse = 
        Dim start_date As String = Format(StartDate.Value, "yyyy-MM-ddThh:mm:ss.00Z")

        Dim end_date As String = Format(EndDate.Value, "yyyy-MM-ddThh:mm:ss.00Z")

        strResponse = Get_all_closed_bills("", _
                                                         "", _
                                                         "connector-api", _
                                                         "C66EF7B239D24632943D115EDE9CB810-EA00F8FD8294692C940F6B5A8F9453D", _
                                                            "E0D439EE522F44368DC78E1BFB03710C-D24FB11DBE31D4621C4817E028D9E1D", _
                                                            start_date, _


        TextBox1.Text = strResponse
    End Sub

End Class

as soon as the code get to :
Dim httpResponse = DirectCast(httpWebRequest.GetResponse(), HttpWebResponse)

i get the "A first chance exception of type 'System.Net.WebException' occurred in System.dll" error
