System.Net.WebException: 'The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized.'

Can anyone can tell me how to get an API key that works? I don't have a VISA card or an MasterCard, I only have Maestro, and apparently Maestro is not supported by Azure verification. I live in Germany by the way...

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Ardian,

I faced the same problem as you (live in Germany, no Visa -> no Azure verification) but you can try the free plan of Azure which only requires a Microsoft - account. But pay attention that this plan is very limited and does not include cognitive services (text analysis).

Hi, did you manage to get it working? I'm facing the same problem right now. Even though I'm using the free plan for the API.

I'm quite sure it's not about the code since the result is the same with Postman application.

Nope. I just gave up and went further. I don't think that you can make it work. At least not until I'll get a VISA Credit card. It would be great if they would accept PayPal as payment method though...

I see... that's a shame. Ok, thank you.
