try
{
   // Create a web request for S"www.msn.com".
   HttpWebRequest^ myHttpWebRequest = dynamic_cast<HttpWebRequest^>(WebRequest::Create( "http://www.msn.com" ));

   // Get the headers associated with the request.
   WebHeaderCollection^ myWebHeaderCollection = myHttpWebRequest->Headers;

   // Set the Cache-Control header.
   myWebHeaderCollection->Set( "Cache-Control", "no-cache" );

   // Get the associated response for the above request.
   HttpWebResponse^ myHttpWebResponse = dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(myHttpWebRequest->GetResponse());

   // Print the headers of the request to console.
   Console::WriteLine( "Print request headers after adding Cache-Control for first request:" );
   printHeaders( myHttpWebRequest->Headers );

   // Remove the Cache-Control header for the new request.
   myWebHeaderCollection->Remove( "Cache-Control" );

   // Get the response for the new request.
   myHttpWebResponse = dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(myHttpWebRequest->GetResponse());

   // Print the headers of the new request with->Item[Out] the* Cache-Control header.
   Console::WriteLine( "Print request headers after removing Cache-Control for the new request:" );
   printHeaders( myHttpWebRequest->Headers );
   myHttpWebResponse->Close();
}
// Catch exception if trying to remove a restricted header.
catch ( ArgumentException^ e ) 
{
   Console::WriteLine( "Error : Trying to remove a restricted header" );
   Console::WriteLine( "ArgumentException is thrown. Message is : {0}", e->Message );
}
catch ( WebException^ e ) 
{
   Console::WriteLine( "WebException is thrown. Message is : {0}", e->Message );
   if ( e->Status == WebExceptionStatus::ProtocolError )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Status Code : {0}", (dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(e->Response))->StatusCode );
      Console::WriteLine( "Status Description : {0}", (dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(e->Response))->StatusDescription );
      Console::WriteLine( "Server : {0}", (dynamic_cast<HttpWebResponse^>(e->Response))->Server );
   }
}
catch ( Exception^ e ) 
{
   Console::WriteLine( "Exception is thrown. Message is : {0}", e->Message );
