The problem seems to be what I can only describe as a deficiency in the Visual Studio environment - the clue was the information message described in my previous response.

My usual way of testing an isolated Sub or Function while I am developing an application is either to invoke it directly from the Immediate Window, or, if this is not convenient (as it frequently isn't), to write a stub Sub which uses it and invoke that from the Immediate Window. This has always worked for me before. It appears that there is an issue with doing this to test (at least some) WebClient code, presumably because of some aspect of how code invoked from the Immediate Window is interpreted and run. If I put the code clipping from my first message in the Form_Load Function of a Windows Forms App and run the App, the code runs normally and returns the expected JSON string. If I put the identical code in a Public Sub and invoke the Sub from the VS Immediate Window, it throws the ThreadAbortException that I originally described. Perhaps the most bizarre aspect of this is the fact that the misbehavior is dependent on the URL in the request being an HTTPS one - as I noted, requests involving HTTP URLs are handled correctly, even when the code is run from the Immediate Window.
