Hi,

I realised that the connection to facebook is changed in version 35236. In the sample, it seems that the user has to login to Facebook thru a browser 1st?

What about connection through a desktop application? I have been using version 2.1 to develop a desktop application to connect to Facebook. It seems like the newly checked-in version is doing it differently. Any advice on how to create a connection to Facebook from a desktop application? I have looked at the desktop sample included in version 35236. It's not working either giving "Session key invalid or no longer valid" error. Please help. Thanks

I haven't tried out developing a desktop application but I have managed to reproduce the issue consistently. You will need to verify that the session key is valid. The only way I have figured out is to actually try using it and handling it if it fails. Have a look at http://my6solutions.com/post/2009/07/31/Facebook-Connect-Invalid-Session-Key-issue.aspx. I have also included the utility class I use.
