Hello,
I am getting a warning page when using the windows live data permission system.
I use this url:
https://ux.cumulus.services.live.com/pgux/default.aspx rl=https://<myhost>/callback.html&pl=https://<myhost>/privacypolicy.html&ps=LiveContacts.ReadOnly

(per http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb447718.aspx)

and I have a valid SSL certificate on <myhost>.

When I redirect the user to that url, the user can login but after that I get a warning page with a red error:
"You have been directed to this page in error.
Please press your Back button."
And "If you are a developer testing out Windows Live Data, please scroll down. "
When I scroll all the way down I can choose "Give access" and I am redirected to a callback page I expect and the response caontains an auth token.

What do I need to do to get rid of this warning page, or at least the red warning on the page

Do I need to use a different url Am I seeing this because windows live is in alpha mode

Thanks for your help.

Hi, Yassine:

Yes, you are getting this ugly screen precisely because Windows Live Data is in alpha mode. Our goal is to let Windows Live developers start innovating with our system while continuing working to bring it to a reliable beta stage. What's the good news

1. We are very happy with the acceptance/response so far in that the traffic through Windows Live Data has been increasing steadily since its alpha launch.

2. The beta release is just near the corner, and you will kiss this ugly scary screen goodbye very soon, : )

Thank you YuanYaun !

When is the beta likely to be released is it a matter of days, weeks or months
Even though the alpha works well and I am able to retrieve contacts, I am a reluctant to let users see this warning screen and am eagerly waiting for the Beta.
