I recently upgraded to VS 2010 and downgraded to SQL Server 2005. Now when I go Website > ASP.NET Configuration nothing happens.
It's likely this has to do with the fact that when I was installing SQL Server I got the 'ASP.net Version Registration requirement' warning, as well as the 'Failed to find the ASP.net Version Registration requirement with MS IIS'.
Anyone know what I need to get ASP.NET Configuration working?
I'm trying to test calling a webservice, I've found several free ones on http://webserviceshare.com, but none of them work for me. Some of them give example calling code in C# which I've translated to VB.NET, they're typically just two to four lines, I don't think I've translated them incorrectly.
On that I've tried is US Zip Validator. I added a Service Reference to http://www.webservicemart.com/uszip.asmx?WSDL, called ZipService.
I then call it like so:
Dim myZipService As ZipService.USZipSoapClient = New ZipService.USZipSoapClient() Dim myCity As String = myZipService.ValidateZip("27707")
I get the following error on the first line of code:
"An endpoint configuration section for contract 'ZipService.USZipSoap' could not be loaded because more than one endpoint configuration for that contract was found. Please indicate the preferred endpoint configuration section by name."
A page with information on this web service (including C# source code) is at:
