Posted By:Dhananjay Kumar       Posted Date: December 02, 2010    Points: 75    Category: SharePoint    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

The Web Application could not be found .verify that you have typed the URL correctly error: SharePoint 2010 object model. In this article I will show how to handle the exception "Web application not found" in SharePoint 2010 object model.

The following exception is very frustrating when we start working with SharePoint object model.  Let us investigate how to solve the exception. 


The preceding exception can be encountered in two scenarios 
  1. Trying to use SharePoint 2010 object model in managed application like console or windows application. 
  2. Trying to use SharePoint 2010 object model in WCF Service or Web services. 

Scenario # 1: The above Exception in console or windows application 

Right click on Console/Windows Application project and select properties. 


Click on Application tab and choose the target framework to .Net Framework 3.5.


After changing Target framework to .NET Framework 3.5, click on Build tab.


Change the Platform target to Any CPU. 

Now when you run the application, you should not get the exception 

Scenario # 2: Exception when using SharePoint 2010 object model in WCF 

If you are getting the exception while using SharePoint object model in WCF or any Web service. You need to perform the following operations.

Host WCF service in IIS.  See the link below for step by step explanation on how to host WCF 4.0 Service in IIS 7.5


Except we need to make sure that the hosted WCF service is sharing the same application pool with SharePoint. 


Select the Application pool to SharePoint-80.
Try to apply both when you use SharePoint 2010 object model.  I hope this discussion will help you.
