Error 404 - Bad Request

Hello.  We are using a C# application to retrieve report information from the Report API and it has been working fine for 3 months.  On June 13 it stopped working when making the request.  The error message is "Error 404 Bad Request".


I downloaded the sample application from the API website and ran the code using my authentication credentials and got the same error message.


I am able to authenticate and get a token.  The error occurs when calling

"HttpWebResponse Response = (HttpWebResponse)Request.GetResponse();"


Here is the supporting code


string RequestPacket =
"<reportDefinition>" +
"<selector>" +
"<fields>CampaignName</fields>" +
"<fields>Name</fields>" +
"<fields>Date</fields>" +
"<fields>Impressions</fields>" +
"<fields>Clicks</fields>" +
"<fields>Cost</fields>" +
"<dateRange>" +
"<min>20120613</min>" +
"<max>20120628</max>" +
"</dateRange>" +
"</selector>" +
"<reportName>Adgroup_Performance_Report</reportName>" +
"<reportType>ADGROUP_PERFORMANCE_REPORT</reportType>" +
"<dateRangeType>CUSTOM_DATE</dateRangeType>" +
"<downloadFormat>XML</downloadFormat>" +


WebRequest Request = HttpWebRequest.Create("");
Request.Headers.Add("clientCustomerId: " + ClientCustomerId);
Request.Headers.Add("developerToken: " + DeveloperToken);
Request.Headers.Add("Authorization: GoogleLogin auth=" + AuthToken);
Request.Headers.Add("returnMoneyInMicros: false");
Request.Method = "POST";
Request.ContentType = "application/x-www-form-urlencoded";
using (StreamWriter writer = new StreamWriter(Request.GetRequestStream()))
writer.Write("__rdxml=" + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(RequestPacket));

HttpWebResponse Response = (HttpWebResponse)Request.GetResponse();


The last line is when the error occurs.


Thank you in advance,

Some more information. The error message in teh response says.
"Unable to locate billing information for that Developer Token" But when I look at the status of the token it is set to "Approved".
