Every time I open my DynDNS Updater, it can not retrieve my Host List. I receive the error "Unable to refresh host list. WinHttpSendRequest failed." I thought it would fix itself when I updated recently, but I still receive the same error.

Is this a common error?

What version of Windows and what version (number) of the updater?

I'm also getting this same error every time I try to refresh host list.

Using DynDNS Updater v4.1.4 on Windows Vista Business SP2.

Does the solution lie somewhere in Services?

All having this problem with refreshing the host list for Updater 4.x may post the relevant lines from the Updater log or other clear evidences here. How should one be able to help without any details?

"Hey, I have a problem. Guess and try to find out what it is."
This cannot work. We are not in a quiz show here, are we? :x

What an idiotic bunch of responses. If you can't help, keep your mouths shut. I had the same issue and cast about for some help without much luck. I figured out that my firewall (Symantec Piece of S**t) was blocking port 80 despite letting nearly every other protocol go through and showing it as checked. The moment, I freed up port 80 for DynDns Updater, it worked fine.

mapsonburt, if you can't say something nice, try saying nothing at all. Coming here and being abusive isn't a good way to introduce yourself.

If your problem truly had to do with allowing outbound port 80 access then your network is very unusual - few SOHO type networks block outbound access.

Your specific problem may have had a completely different cause (and solution) than the other posters' problems. There hasn't been any logs posted so far, and nobody have been able to do more than guesswork yet.

Some people here bother to spend some of their free time helping out other users. How can that possibly annoy you? I really don't understand the problem here.
