I've attached another project (BugTest3.zp) that also reproduces this error. This is a FX 4.0 console app with only two lines:

    var handler = new System.Net.Http.HttpClientHandler();

Echoing this experience, and sharing similar insight at the post at : http://forums.asp.net/p/1792578/4931104.aspx/1?HttpClient+weirdness+with+javascript. It appears from the context of that post that the issue is related to both .NET 4 and .NET 4.5 being on the same machine. I am running into the issue when incorporating the WindowsAzure.Storage.Proxy NuGet package (itself marginally, but not truly a MSFT product, especially since Wade Wegner is no longer with MSFT) in an Azure-hosted MVC project to be accessed from WP7. The code includes the following line:
var azureClient = new HttpClient { MaxResponseContentBufferSize = StorageServicesContext.Current.Configuration.WindowsAzureStorageMaximumResponseSize }; in StorageProxyHandler.cs, line 120, which compiles in VS2010SP1 without any issues, but fails with the error listed below at runtime.

Thanks for looking into the issue.

Some interesting observations:

Please note that the project I attached previously compiles successfully in VS11, even though it contains the following code:

    var client = new System.Net.Http.HttpClient()
                    MaxResponseContentBufferSize = 0x400

VS11 IntelliSense also shows MaxResponseContentBufferSize as a property of HttpClient! This code even runs successfully (without generating an excepion) under the 4.5 FX. However, when the exact same code is run under the 4.0FX, it generates System.MissingMethodException.

The MaxResponseContentBufferSize property is not located on the HttpClient object. Instead that property is part of the HttpClient handler.


Thank you,
