// virtual directory on the platform Web server
string virtualDirectory = "mscrmservices";
string strDir = "http://" + strServer + "/" + virtualDirectory + "/";

bizUser.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials;
bizUser.Url = strDir + "BizUser.srf";

// CRMProcess proxy object
Microsoft.CRM.Proxy.CRMProcess  process = new Microsoft.CRM.Proxy.CRMProcess();

   // Delete the rule
   process.DeleteRule(userAuth, strRuleId);
catch (System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException err)
   // Process the platform error here
