I'm facing a very peculiar problem, I am using google maps API for a webpage.

The objective is to get the Google Pin point on the Map for the addresses that the user has entered. While doing this I get the following error

Occasionally it does works fine (but on my local system it always works).

I am using the following code to get the reference from Google API (i.e., longitude,latitude)

WebRequest objWebRequest = WebRequest.Create(geoURL);
WebResponse objWebResponse = objWebRequest.GetResponse();

Stream objWebStream = objWebResponse.GetResponseStream();

using (StreamReader objStreamReader = new StreamReader(objWebStream))
    csvValues = objStreamReader.ReadToEnd(); 

if (!(string.IsNullOrEmpty(csvValues)))
    Match coord = Regex.Match(csvValues, "<coordinates>.*</coordinates>");

    if (!coord.Success) return "";
        return coord.Value.Substring(13, coord.Length - 27); 

Does any one have a solution?

Can you tell me which URL you are trying for?
Actually AFAIK, google gives a javascript to draw the map.
