Azure - Bing Search not working with new azure account key

I am using Bing Search on one of my mp site, and it is still working, but on 8/1/2012 they say they are transitioning to the newer Azure bases API keys,


So i opened the account and activated key for the free level search API. and changed my api code to the new one.

boom error page:

Looks like it is affecting the http://www.mojoportal.com/BingSearch.aspx search page too:

my log4net:

2012-07-30 11:20:44,025 ERROR 108.35.163.18 - en-US - /SearchResults.aspx - mojoPortal.Web.mojoBasePage - 108.35.163.18-en-US - /SearchResults.aspx

I will start debugging local now to see why the old key works and the new one does not.

If you upgrade to the latest version of mojoPortal it should work. LinqToBing is no longer used with the new api.

Hope that helps,

Joe

Thanks Joe, I am in the process in integrating the dev branch into my local.


But just want to point out as well, this site ( http://www.mojoportal.com/BingSearch.aspx)  producing an error.
