"Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled" yet again!

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 05, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF
 

I've followed all of the suggestions described in the other Q&As on this subject but so far nothing has worked - I still get the "Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled" page.  Here is my web.config file:

 <system.serviceModel>
  <services>
   <service name="StationCasinos.Workflow.RuntimeService.WorkflowRuntimeService" behaviorConfiguration="StandardBehavior">
    <host>
     <baseAddresses>
      <add baseAddress="http://localhost:6555/EnterpriseWorkflow/MessagingServic

Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled Problem under IIS7

  

Hi,

I am struggling with an issue that I haven't seen before, at least not without a simple resolution. I have seen numerous articles about this issue but I haven't found one that actually gives a solution that works and its really becoming a royal pain.

I am getting the message, "Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled" when attempting to host my service in IIS7 on windows 7. I have only seen this problem since I migrated to VS2010 using the .NET 4 Framework.

I have adjusted my web.config file in effort of resolving the problem but to no avail. Anyone here able to help me out on this one? I am totally exhausted on going in circles for this issue.

Here is my code:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration>
  <system.web>
    <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0" />
  </system.web>
  <system.serviceModel>
     <behaviors>
      <serviceBehaviors>
        <behavior name ="MapServiceBehavior">
          <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true"/>

Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled.

  

I have tried to do what some have suggested to have the metadata publishing enabled but cant figure this out. Could anyone assist in what i could be doing wrong here? Ive read a few blogs and nothing seems to work. Im running as an admin, Win 7, VS2010 + all updates. My Web.Config file under my ASP .net site is:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration>
   <system.web>
  <compilation debug="false" strict="false"

'Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled' message with WCF service

  

Whenever I try to add a web reference to the WCF service in my project, I get an error:

'The HTML document does not contain Web service discovery information.
There was an error downloading 'http://localhost/OFTestSite/Service.svc/$metadata'.
The request failed with HTTP status 400: Bad Request.'

When I browse Service.svc directly from the IIS, the page opens with the statement 'Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled.'

I followed all the steps correctly to make metadata publishing enabled, but still I get the same message and I'm not able to add the web refernce.

Could anyone please help me? 

(I am using VS 2010 Professional on Windows XP machine with IIS 5.1)


Metadata publishing for this service is currently disabled.

  

I have created a WCF service from VS 2010 and started debugging only after makin changes in web.config file, and is looking like this.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<configuration>

  <system.web>
    <compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0" />
  </system.web>
  <system.serviceModel>
    <services>
      <service name="WCFGettingStarted.Servie1" behaviorConfiguration="MyServiceBehavior">
        <endpoint address="" binding="basicHttpBinding" contract="WCFGettingStarted.IServie1"></endpoint>
        <endpoint contract="IMetadataExchange" binding="mexHttpBinding" address="mex" />
      </service>
    </services>
    <behaviors>
      <serviceBehaviors>
        <behavior name="MyServiceBehavior">
          <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true"/>
          <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="false"/>
