I'm trying to connect to remote Adaxes service from C# program.
Using sample code from "Writing ADSI scripts" page in the docs.

Added DLLs, here is my code:

static void Main(string[] args)
            AdmNamespace adsNS = new AdmNamespace();
            IAdmService admService = adsNS.GetServiceDirectly("");

getting error:
System.Configuration.ConfigurationErrorsException: The configuration file is missing.
error line: AdmNamespace adsNS = new AdmNamespace();

I'm not sure which config file it's asking for.

The error occurs, because you do not have Adaxes ADSI Provider installed on the computer from which you are trying to connect to Adaxes service. For information on how to install it, have a look at the following article in our SDK: http://www.adaxes.com/sdk/?HowDoI.Insta ... vider.html.

Upgraded to the latest adaxes release yesterday and now this morning we are not able to access our self-service portal. We have rebooted our server and verified our adaxes service is successfully connected our domains. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!
