Thanks for quick reply & detailed steps. I have tried those steps and found an exception in the last step. Here are the screens shots.
I have given the correct credentials. I have used the same for windows login.
Once again thanks for your help.
Thank you for the update and your patience in allowing us to help you with this issue.
I want you to do the following. This will run a PoerShell that gives you a black window instead of the blue window you have been using.
Navigate to Start-> All programs ->Nicrosoft Online Services -> Microsoft Online Services Module for Windows PowerShell.
When you get the black PowerShell window repeat the commands from Step 2 to Step 6 and let me know if this was successful.
Thanks once again for your help and support. I have followed your instructions and got an exception in the following command. Connect-MsolService -Credential $LiveCred
There is another update on this issue.
I have set up a new Windows server 2008 R2 and configured Exchange server on it. Then installed Visual studio in it and executed the C# program for retrieving mailbox details. That is working fine but still I can't execute this program from another PC in the same domain.
Thanks & Regards
Thanks for the update. I am reviewing the PowerShell commands and it appears that you get the same error whether we use the blue or the black version .
Can you modify the command that fails from your last try. Run the command as Connect-MsolService and then let it prompt for the credentials.
Even if this fails try to run your program and report what happens.
I have done the changes as suggested by you, but the result is same. Here I have given the steps I have followed...
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks for your post and screen shot about the current situation. I apologize for any inconveniences this issue may have caused you and your organization. Please follow these steps to connect to our Exchange Online:

Thank you for your continuing support. I did the same as you suggested. Please review the screenshot below.
Thanks for the response and the screenshot. In reviewing the errors you have had with PowerShell it is always that the username or password is incorrect.
Do you have any other admin credential you could try. It has to be an Office 365 administrator credential.Rerun the steps using the black PowerShell window and use this new credential when you run the Connect-MsolService commandlet.
We are very close to resolving this. Please update the thread with the results
Thank you for your continuing support. Samuel A Girod MSFT ModeratorDo you have any other admin credential you could try. It has to be an Office 365 administrator credential. Can you please clarify this(I feel sorry for only having limited knowledge in this area); What is an Office 365 Administrator credential? How can I get that? I read that office 365 is a paid service offered from Microsoft and this contains different components including Microsoft Exchange Online. Is it necessary to have an office 365 administrator to run Exchange server(2010) monitoring commands via a C# application. Thanks once again for your help.
