What steps will reproduce the problem?
1.Insert Code

Dim authFactory As New
authFactory.AccountType = "GOOGLE"

conserv.RequestFactory = authFactory
conserv.setUserCredentials("username", "password")

With nc
.Name = New Google.GData.Extensions.Name()
.Name.FullName = "John Davis"
.Name.GivenName = "John"
.Name.FamilyName = "Davis"

2.Run Code
3.Get error of invalid credentials, I tried 3 different ways from searching

Can I please take your time to ask if you have a solution to your problem.
I understand why you have this problem because Google has shut down the api
for the contactsservice and you have to use OAuth now. My problem is I cant
find sample VB code to do exactly what you do above in, do you have
any that you have found? Thanks so much for taking the time. Stephen

Hey Stephen

I have not figured out the contact service yet. To be honest I put that
part on hold on my project. I had tried going about it from the gmail side
with no luck. I also have successful google calendar access but when I
tried interlacing the code I couldn't get the contact access. There is java
code on googles site but I am not versed in that language since I am a self
taught vb guy with a degree in mech engineering. I have been thinking of
going to c# since there is a lot more source code for it. Also for my app I
am thinking of going web based.
Good luck if you make any progress let me know and if you have any further
questions feel free to ask. I'd give my email but this is a public post
