ASP.NET (C#) Question

Could not render the url. Could not get image from url.Navigation timeout

I've got a ASP.NET web application which contains the

Winnovative HTML to PDF Converter
.

This has been running for over a year successfully generating PDFs

However, this is no longer working, and the error being returned is:

Could not render the url. Could not get image from url.Navigation timeout..


I've checked the Winnovative FAQ and they suggest adding a
NavigationTimeout
to the instance of the PdfConverter. I've added the following:

PdfConverter.NavigationTimeout = 500


However, this has not fixed the error. Furthermore, the page being converted only takes a fraction of a second to load when loading directly in the browser, so I don't believe its a performance issue with the page being rendered.

Has anyone experienced this problem before? Are there any known solutions/causes for this?

Answer

In the end I found out this error was occuring because we were trying to request a PDF from a HTTPS file.

I weren't able to solve why though.

Please see this question if you have an answer:
