    after I updated from 3CX V12.5 to V14 my VAD project for callrouting aborts with "error.badfetch".
    When I call the digital receptionist (extension 8520) internally, the VAD code works perfect, but when I call from outside (ISDN), the code execution interrupts and the error handler is executed, which transfers all calls to the reception.
    It seems the code does not even start to execute, when called form external lines.
    Error log:
    START_CALLFLOW_EXECUTION: Main.flow - Build: 41
    VARIABLE_CHANGED: project$_CurrentErrorDescription$=
    VARIABLE_CHANGED: project$_CurrentErrorName$=error.badfetch
    END_EXECUTION: Main.flow - - EH
    END_EXECUTION: Main.flow - errorHandlerContainer1 - EH
    END_EXECUTION: Main.flow - 0b4c203e-7058-4885-bd98-8d2c6fbb539c.error - EH
    END_EXECUTION: Main.flow - - DH

    Maybe this is caused by an http error 404, but I do not see why this can be different between internal and external calls, because the IIS log says:
    2016-04-05 07:32:57 GET /ivr/VADRouting_Debug_41/Main_DebugInfo.aspx application.Main_NextComponentUri%24=&application.Main_NextDisconnectHandlerUri%24=&application.Main_NextErrorHandlerUri%24=&application.MenuResult_InvalidOption=InvalidOption&application.MenuResult_Timeout=Timeout&application.MenuResult_ValidOption=ValidOption&application.RecordResult_Completed=Completed&application.RecordResult_NothingRecorded=NothingRecorded&application.RecordResult_StopBySilence=StopBySilence&application.RecordResult_StopDigit=StopDigit&application.UserInputResult_InvalidDigits=InvalidDigits&application.UserInputResult_Timeout=Timeout&application.UserInputResult_ValidDigits=ValidDigits&application.project%24_CalledNumber=&application.project%24_CallerCompany=&application.project%24_CallerName=&application.project%24_CallerNumber=&application.project%24_CallerNumberWOZero=&application.project%24_CallerString=Incoming%20call%20from%20%25CallerName%25%2C%20%25CallerCompany%25%2C%20CallerNumber%3A%20%25CallerNumber%25%2C%20RoutingDestination%3A%20%25RoutingDestination%25%2C%20Starttime%3A%20%25STARTTIME%25%20-%20EndTime%3A%20%25ENDTIME%25&application.project%24_CurrentErrorDescription%24=&application.project%24_CurrentErrorName%24=&application.project%24_EndTime=&*****%24fgH&application.project%24_PbxSipPort%24=5060&application.project%24_Reception=8000&application.project%24_RoutingDestination=8000&application.project%24_SMTPPort=25&application.project%24_SMTPServer= 80 - 3CXIvrEngine/1.0+libwww/5.3.1 - 404 15 0 3

    I also already added
    <httpRuntime requestValidationMode=”2.0″ />
    <pages validateRequest=”False” />
    to the web.config file in the ivr subfolder.

    Would kindly appriciate any ideas.

    Hi Thomas,

    You're using quite a lot of variables, and the length of the query string is around 2048. I think that a possible cause of this could be that when you call from inside, the caller ID is just 4 digits, and when you call from outside it's larger, and that difference causes that the query string is larger than 2048 characters for external calls, and shorter for internal calls. That could cause that internal calls work and external don't. That 2048 limit is the default for IIS and here Microsoft explains that IIS will return 404 error in that case: ... uestlimits

    In order to avoid this limitation in the query string, you need to change the web.config file into the ivr subfolder, adding the following parameters, for example to extend it to 32768:
                <requestLimits maxQueryString="32768" />
    You might need to restart IIS after making this change.

    Hope the information helps.

    Kind regards.
