    Hi Guys,

    I had a desktop app built in .net a year or so ago and the original coder is no longer contactable. Part of what it did was grab keywords using the old G external keyword tool at

    ("h**ps://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal?forceLegacy=true").

    As you all know this no longer available and I'm trying to fix my script to use the current tool.

    I'm a complete noob at programming but found this line in a dll file -

    webBrowser1.Navigate("https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal?forceLegacy=true")

    I assume this needs changing and wonder if anyone might be able to help with this?

    I have never worked with G's external keyword tool(new or old) as to code wise...
    So I am not too sure of the differences in input/output but I am sure that has changed...
    Basically what you have found with Webbrowser1.Navigate() call is exactly that the call to navigate to the URL. Now you will have to change that to the URL to the new one and also update the parser for it to grab the proper values it needs.

    Changing the URL is not the only thing here...
    You would also have to change other functions which interact with the page and parse the data and give the output.

    There are many things you would have change for it to work with new one, especially if your software uses web automation script. Even if it uses http requests you still have many things to be changed.
