Getting error when referancing third pary .asmx in windows service as Service Referance

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 24, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net


   I referenced a third party Web service (.asmx) WSDL file as service referance in Windows Service. When I execute from WCFTestClient.exe, I am getting response back. I am not able to create an instance of proxy in windows service. I could create in Web app. I am getting the following error.


"Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'EDIService.notifyGasNomsEvent_PortType' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element."

                <binding name="meterdatamgmt_public_pub_wsds_notifyGasNomsEvent_Binder"
                    closeTimeout="00:01:00" openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00"

Unable to call an asmx web service using windows authentication from a Service workflow

Hello, I need to use an existing asmx service from inside my service workflow and I am unable to call it. This asmx service is hosted in a web application with iis set to windows authentication, anonymous is not allowed. I need to send the authentication, only way seems too be using transport for basicHttpBindings. Every time I try to call the service I get an error saying that there is nothing listening to the url of the service generated automatically by VS when I added the Service Reference ? my web config <configuration> <configSections> </configSections> <system.web> <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0" /> </system.web> <system.serviceModel> <protocolMapping> <add scheme="http" binding="wsHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="WindowsCreds" /> </protocolMapping> <bindings> <basicHttpBinding> <binding name="UtilitiesSoap" closeTimeout="00:01:00" openTimeout="00:01:00" receiveTimeout="00:10:00" sendTimeout="00:01:00" allowCookies="false" bypassProxyOnLocal="false" hostNameComparisonMode="StrongWildcard" maxBufferSize="65536" maxBufferPoolSize="524288" maxReceivedMessageSize="65536"

Error 400 when hosting windows streaming service.

WCF, .NET 3.5:I'm sorry if this is redundant, but I'm having problems receiving error: 400 requests. My particular issue is this: If I select my service library within VS the library is test hosted and I can stream large files. My problem is getting a windows service configured to host this service library. I can transfer small files but larger ones are failing with the following stacktrace: <E2ETraceEvent xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/2004/06/E2ETraceEvent"> <System xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/2004/06/windows/eventlog/system"> <EventID>262155</EventID> <Type>3</Type> <SubType Name="Error">0</SubType> <Level>2</Level> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2009-11-18T19:58:07.7808550Z" /> <Source Name="System.ServiceModel" /> <Correlation ActivityID="{00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}" /> <Execution ProcessName="ExtractorTestClient.vshost" ProcessID="10768" ThreadID="9" /> <Channel /> <Computer>MyComputer</Computer> </System> <ApplicationData> <TraceData> <DataItem> <TraceRecord xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/2004/10/E2ETraceEvent/TraceRecord" Severity="Error"> <TraceIdentifier>http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/library/Syste

TCP Error Code 10060 when attempting to access WCF Service hosted by WIndows Service from client run


Hello all,

We have a Framework 3.5 WCF Service which is in turn hosted in a Windows Service using Net.Tcp Binding. SvcUtil is used to generate the proxy which is used instead of a service reference in the client code. We are also using Tcp Port Sharing. The endpoint address is net.tcp://HostMachineName/MyServicePath. The service logs to the Event log and everything works perfectly on the same machine.

When attempting to run the client from a different machine we are getting TCP Error Code 10060 errors. Below is the error message:

System.ServiceModel.EndpointNotFoundException: Could not connect to net.tcp://HostMachineName/MyServicePath. The connection attempt lasted for a time span of 00:00:20.8592415. TCP error code 10060: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 111.22.333.444:808.  ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond 111.22.333.444:808... The IP Address displayed was the correct IP Address for the HostComputerName.

Has anyone encountered this problem? Also, client specs say no config files, so anything that wo

Install Windows Service Error

Hi to all,
I made a Windows Service that I can install fine in my developer machine (Win XP SP2 with Framework 2.0.50727.1433).
But when I want to install the same Windows Service in my production machine I;m getting this error:

   Creating EventLog source WindowsServiceTest in log Application...

   An exception occurred during the Install phase.
      System.Security.SecurityException: Requested registry access is not allowed.
         at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowSecurityException(ExceptionResource resource)
Thinking that is a security/permission error, I change this to use a user that has administrative profile, then when try to install I got an error again:

   Affected parameters are:
      logtoconsole =
      showcallstack =
      i =
      logfile = D:\Test\WindowsServiceTest.InstallLog
      assemblypath = D:\Test\WindowsServiceTest.exe

   An exception occurred during the Install phase.
   System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Access is denied
   at System.ServiceProcess.ServiceProcessInstaller.OpenSecurityPolicy()

Really I don't know what to do. Any Help? or idea?
Thanks in advance.

Deploying an .asmx Web Service on a Windows Server 2003 machine

Hi, I have created a WEb Service using Visual Studio 2008 on an XP PC. I have sucessfully deployed the web service and tested it correctly on my local machince. It is located at http://localhost/MAC/Service.asmx.

Now, what I want to do is deploy this Web Service on a server. The server is running Windows Server 2003 Web Edition. I thought it was only a matter of copying the "UMACS" folder on my XP PC, which includes the Service.asmx, web.cong and service.cs files etc, and then copy this to the server and try to deploy it through IIS.

I have tried this but everytime I try to access http://localhost/MAC/Service.asmx like before, I get "Error 404: Web site cannot be found". I have done a lot of searching on this. I have enabled IIS apping use the command "c:WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\1.1.4322\aspnet_regiis.exe -i" but still this doesn't work.

Is there something else I need to do to deploy this web service?

In the IIS on the server, there is a "Web Service Extensions" section. Do I have to do something in here first to make it work?

"Windows SharePoint Services Web Application" service is showing 'Error starting'.


I just installed MOSS SP2 and ran the config wizard on the server.
I am facing issue with our farm. Found that "Windows SharePoint Services Web Application" is in a problem.

I tried below commands:-
stsadm -o provisionservice -action stop -servicetype spwebservice -servicename ""
stsadm -o provisionservice -action start -servicetype spwebservice -servicename ""
But getting error:- Provision of service failed. Additional information: 1387.

Checked eventvwr and found below error log:-

Time:  5:16:10 AM

An attempt to start/stop instance  of service Windows SharePoint Services Web Application on server <servername> did not succeed. Re-run the action via UI or command line on the specified server.

None of the sites are working and I cannot see anything in the IIS folder nor in the IIS manager. All application folders are missing. But, I can see all the sites & Content databasesin the Central Admin.

Can someone please help?


Windows service hosting WCF service errors with Error ID 7034, WindowsService service terminated une



We have a number of windows services that are hosting a WCF 4.0 service each (Windows 2003 R2 Stardard SP2)

Invariably we are getting An error from Service Control Manager with this error id:7034

The description states:

"The RMWindowsService service terminated unexpectedly.  It has done this 1 time(s)."

We have 10 services running on 5 servers (Prod, Pre-Prod, Support, Test,Dev)

All servers are Windows 2003 R2 Stardard SP2.

All Services are experiencing the error. 

Some times all together, some times 2-3 at a time, some times, only one errors

On searching on the error this link said that the Error Id meant

"ERROR 7034: NS_E_SOURCEGROUP_NOTPREPARED.This error is due to The source is not yet prepared.%0 .The source of the error code is the Windows Media Server."

On searching for NS_E_SOURCEGROUP_NOTPREPARED , this link confirmed  in part what was said.

But I can find nothing that gives me a root cause of what is causing this error. Which is fair as I wrote the Winservice

Windows Service Applications Tutorials

You can easily create services by creating an application that is installed as a service. For example, suppose you want to monitor performance counter data and react to threshold values. You could write a Windows Service application that listens to the performance counter data, deploy the application, and begin collecting and analyzing data.

Service Station: Run ASMX Without IIS


When the Microsoft® . NET Framework first shipped, it introduced a breakthrough Web services framework known as ASMX. The motivation behind the ASMX design was to simplify the process of developing Web services as much as possible so that even if you're not an XML expert, you can get a Web service up and running.

Windows Services: New Base Classes in .NET Make Writing a Windows Service Easy


Windows services are applications that run outside of any particular user context in Windows NT, Windows 2000, or Windows XP. The creation of services used to require expert coding skills and generally required C or C++. Visual Studio .NET now makes it easy for you to create a Windows service, whether you're writing code in C++, C#, or Visual Basic. You can also write a Windows service in any other language that targets the common language runtime. This article walks you through the creation of a useful Windows service, then demonstrates how to install, test, and debug the service.

A little background because I feel I have an out of the ordinary architecture in place and don't know if this is contributing to the problem. 

We have an existing ASP.net application that is undergoing expansion.  The new functionality is all written in Silverlight 4.  As part of that expansion I gutted all the old Linq to SQL and put Entity Framework 4 into place.  To do this I created a standard .net Class Library and added my edmx files there.  Naturally, the business entities created by this cannot be used in Silverlight.  So I created a Silverlight Class Library and added all the business entities to that Silverlight Class Library as linked files.  I changed the name space to be the same.

So I have the following assembly / namespaces

Company.Project.Dal.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (.net 4 class library)

Company.Project.Entities.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (SL4 class library)

With this architecture I was able to share my business entities with my SL enabled web services, my asp.net projects, my silverlight projects.  Really it's a beautiful thing.

Once this was done I added "message" classes to Company.Project.Dal and again shared them with the other entites using linked files.  These messages are things like MyObjectRequest; they are class
