StocksTicker labs and MoneyCentral

Jul 30, 2010 at 7:45 PM

Does the MoneyCentral web service that all the Unity hands-on labs refer to still exist?

I get 404 errors when it attempts to contact http://office.microsoft.com/Research/Providers/MoneyCentral.asmx

One web sites reports "the original MSN web service has been shut down"

Thanks,

Baronics

Did you ever get an answer to this problem. In following similar complaints but from the SharePoint Webpart which provides the same function, that it is the Yahoo stream that has to be used but it actually costs money....surely MS wouldn't spend all this time on some great samples only to leave us hanging with something that doesn't work?

Unfortunately, the group that was running that service has shut down, and we don't have the resources right now to rewrite the lab. You can get the lab working by sticking with the mock service provided in the code already. Let's hear it for abstraction! :-)
