Unrecognized configuration section httpHandlers.

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
I spliced this from the webconfig of the working program into another application's webconfig. 
I have just this one error here. Is it ok to have different locations with different system.web areas

An endpoint configuration section for contract 'xxx' could not be loaded because more than one end



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:

ASP.NET Configuration not opening


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?

Web deployment project - web.config section replacement does not add remove tag


I have a web application that is actually installed as a component of a third party site.  In some configurations, I need to remove certain connection strings and re-add them.  I'm replacing this web.config section with a xml file that includes the following:

      <remove name="MyOverridenConnection"/>
      <add connectionString="Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=MyDb;Data Source=MyServer" name="MyOverridenConnection"

For some reason the remove tag is left out during the substitution and I end up with the following in the installed config:

      <add connectionString="Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=MyDb;Data Source=MyServer" name="MyOverridenConnection"

Is there any way to issue removes in replaced sec

Weird security configuration error message


Recently something has gone wrong with our website so that whenever you try to access an aspx file, it shows the following error:


Server Error in '/RALSWeb' Application.

Configuration Tool


I'm fairly new to ASP.NET and I'm trying to think of the best way to implement my first dynamic website. I've noticed the ASP.NET Configuration tool and it seems quite useful but I have a few questions:

1. Can this page be accessed when the website goes live or is it best to make your own?

2. Can this tool handle custom SQL databases or must everything be built into the default one?

3. Can this tool be setup for local use initially and then changed for the hosting server details later on?

The website I'm build will have user account features, with a news and articles section which the user will be able to interact with. So I need to create a database to handle this. However I don't know whether to completely ignore this tool and just make everything custom or try and incorporate that into the ASP.NET Configuration tool. Also, if everything is made custom can you still use the membership tool in visual studio? Thanks for any help :) 

'asp' is an unrecognized tag prefix or device filter


Hi There,

I have been using Visual Web Developer Express Edition Beta 1 Refresh and Visual Studio 2005 Beta 1 for the past few weeks. For some unforeseen reason VS now reports the error -'asp' is an unrecognized tag prefix or device filter on all my .aspx pages.

The solution compiles and launches without any mishap and the only way to alter page control properties is in design view, as intellisense does not function due to the errors.

I've search the web and found a resolution which was to remove all files in the folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\Application

But the issue still exists.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.



All my server-controls became unrecognized!!! like there's compilation error or web.config missing!



please help - the problem is in post subject.

I have lots of warnings with following text:

"Warning 10 Element 'HyperLink' is not a known element. This can occur if there is a compilation error in the Web site, or the web.config file is missing. C:\Users\Pavel\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\WebSites\BioWebSite\ToScientist.aspx 26 18 C:\...\BioWebSite\" 

But web.confg is there! And there's no compilation error!

Site builds just fine. And If I upload it to my hoster - it works!


But with all these errors I cant add controls to pages - VS2010 adds hyperlink without ID, and intelisens stoped to work.

Strange, but in my other project (web-application) I have no such difficuty.

Redirect to Security Questions if Site accessed from unrecognized computer?


I'm fairly new to ASP.NET and i'm using the Membership Provider.  I have the need to do similar to some banking sites. Baically I need to track "authorized" computers/ip's for a user.  If the user accesses the site form a recognized Computer/IP then the user is allowed into the app after successful login.  If the computer/IP is not recognized I need to redirect them to a screen to answer the security question setup in fhte Membership Provider.

Has anyone done anything like this or can anyone point me to any examples?  I did a search, but can't seem to find anything.

My idea is to maintain a list of authorized computers/IP addresses and check them on initial login.  If the IP address isn't found I can redirect them to the questions.  My concern is that they are then actually authenticated and could enter any of the site URL's as an authenticated user.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated. 

Error with ASP.NET Configuration Tool


I'm trying to make an MVC 2 site, and I've run into a bit of a snag.  I want to add user roles to my system via the configuration tool, but every time I click the Security tab I get the following error:

"There is a problem with your selected data store. This can be caused by an invalid server name or credentials, or by insufficient permission. It can also be caused by the role manager feature not being enabled. Click the button below to be redirected to a page where you can choose a new data store.

The following message may help in diagnosing the problem: Could not load type 'HandiGamer.MvcApplication'."

When I click on the 'Choose Data Store' button, it tells me I'm already using AspNetSqlProvider.

I have a .mdf file for the rest of the site's db, but didn't make any tables for membership as I thought all of that would be handled by the configuration tool.

Am I missing a step?
