Message Size Error

When using the SOAP API the download will through the following error if a SOAP message exceeds the maximum quota size:

The maximum message size quota for incoming messages (8048576) has been exceeded. To increase the quota, use the MaxReceivedMessageSize property on the appropriate binding element.

The quota is set fairly high so this should not occur but if it does you can increase the maximum message size in the SF_Download.exe.config file in the bindings section:

  <binding name="SoapBinding" maxReceivedMessageSize="8048576">
    <security mode="Transport" />
