Published WCF Service in IIS doesn't work

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WCF


I'm using sync services and have a WCF service that works fine when run from teh debugger when hosted in the WCF test client that is spawned by the debugger.  But I have "published" my service to my machine and when I go to the UrL the page displays but when I try and run my sync application I get this error which make sit seem like IIS isn't "serving up" the service.  Any ideas??

logoff doesn't work through windows service

Dear Friends, I am facing this problem on Windows 2003 and 2008 Server. On XP it works fine. I have written and Windows Service that takes receives the command and executes tasks such as Logoff, Shutdown, etc. All the commands except Logoff works fine. I tried following ways to perform the Logoff. However it didnt work. Try 1:                 Process.Start("shutdown", "-l"); Try 2:     [DllImport("user32.dll")]     public static extern int ExitWindowsEx(int uFlags, int dwReason);     ExitWindowsEx(0, 0); Try 3:     Process _currentProcess = new Process();                _currentProcess.StartInfo = new ProcessStartInfo("shutdown", "-l -f");                _currentProcess.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;                 _currentProcess.Start(); Try 4:     Process.Start("logoff.exe", null); If I write a simple C# based applicatin (not Service) it works fine for all the tries that I have made. I am facing this problem only when I put this code

web service method doesn't work


DEar all,


I have developed a asp.net website in visual studio 2008, I have Sharepoint server 2010 installed n configured.

In my asp.net website I have a function which will create a folder in the sharepoint site.

My problem is when I have published the website, the folder is not being created.

But when i am debugging it, the folder is being created in the sharepoint site.

My Code is as follows:



String CreateFolder(string sfolderName)



WCF service OK when debugging but it doesn´t work when it is published.


Hi all,

I have created a WCF service in Visual Studio 2010 and it works fine in debug mode (executing it through Visual Studio) but when I publish it on localhost or on a werserver I get the following error:

System.Net.WebException: Unable to connect to the remote server ---> System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it at System.Net.Sockets.Socket.DoConnect(EndPoint endPointSnapshot, SocketAddress socketAddress) at System.Net.ServicePoint.ConnectSocketInternal(Boolean connectFailure, Socket s4, Socket s6, Socket& socket, IPAddress& address, ConnectSocketState state, IAsyncResult asyncResult, Int32 timeout, Exception& exception) --- End of inner exception stack trace --- at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetRequestStream(TransportContext& context) at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetRequestStream() at BrightcoveAPI.HTTP.PostRequests.PostForm(String postUrl, String userAgent, String contentType, Byte[] formData) at BrightcoveAPI.BCAPIRequest.ExecuteWrite[T](Dictionary`2 postParams, AccountConfigElement a) at BrightcoveAPI.VideoAPI.UpdateVideo(BCVideo video) at ServiceBCPublisher.Service1.ActualizaVideoNameYa(Int64 VideoId, String Name) in D:\PROYECTOS2010\WS\ServiceBCPublisher\ServiceBCPublisher\ServiceBCPublisher.svc.cs:line 265 - Unabl

When I use 'publish', site doesn't work when i post data


Arrgghh, I am so tired of dealing with stuff like this

I've got a project, when I put up on another server I point two sites in IIS6 to it

i have

http://www.main.com  pointing to the folder the files are in


http://www.anotherofoursites.com/main pointing to that same folder in it's own "Virtual Application" or whatever IIS calls it when you put a folder into it's own 

If I just "Build" and push all the files up.. both work without issue and as expected...  but when I use "Publish" to precompile, the site works until I post, and then i get nailed with:

Server Error in '/' Application.
Configuration Error
Description: An error occurred during the processing of a configuration file required to service this request. Please review the specific error details below and modify your configuration file appropriately.

Ajax Asyncfileupload doesn't work as soon as I put it in a control


Hi guys,

I can't get my <ajax:asyncfileupload> working and I don't see why...

When outside any panel or table it is working well, but as soon as I put it in a <asp:panel> or table I get a strange error which seems to be on client-side but I don't understand what's happen here. Here is the code and code-behind and Javascript.

Here's the error: 


Here's my front-code:

<%@ Page Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/masterpages/mpSqueletton.master" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="frmAdmGestSocietes.aspx.vb" Inherits="adm_frmAdmGestSocietes" title="Untitled Page" %>
<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="ajax" %>

<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="cphHead" Runat="Server">
<script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">

          document.getElementById("<%= lblStatus.ClientID %>").innerText = args.get_fileName(), "<span style='color:red;'>" + args.get_errorMes

AsyncPostBackTrigger doesn't work on server..


 I am new to asp.net and ajax. I have a problem while using update panel.
I have a tabcontainer with 3-4 tab panels. Inside one tab panel there is a cancel button. What i want to do is to when i hit cancel button in code behind i change active tab index to 0 so that tabcontainer shows first tab panel. I have update panel around tab container. This works at my localhost. But on server its behavior is very random. Sometimes it works sometime it doesn't. Unfortunately I am not able to debug it also. I don't know how to debug code on server. As on localhost it works correctly so I am kind of stuck. 

Asyncfileupload doesn't work in webusercontrol

I'm having a problem with a Webusercontrol that has an asyncfileupload control. My websusercontrol is being loaded in a placeholder control that's wrapped by an updatepanel.Due to asyncpostback, I have to load and clear the placeholder's controls. The webusercontrol works flawlessly, except the asyncfileupload, which doesn't want to upload at all. I can assure that the code is without error, because I used to have the webusercontrol running as an *.aspx site. I guess that the problem is the fact that the control has to be cleared and reloaded with every asyncpostback ?

Getting AppDomain.UnhandledException event to work in a Windows Service

Nearly every forum thread I have found on "catching unhandled exceptions in a service" seems to end up where I am.  The supposed solution is the use of the AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException event.  But it doesn't work for someone, who then asks why and gets no answer.  Same for me; I can't get the event to happen.  It's as if I need the ServiceProcess version of Application.SetUnhandledExceptionMode(), which doesn't exist. For diagnosing this, I start a timer in a child object of the service and then throw an exception in the timer event handler.  Simple enough to simulate the real situation.  I have tried subscribing to the UnhandledException event in at least a half dozen locations throughout the service, from the Program that runs ServiceBase.Run() to the constructor of the object that owns the Timer, but it never catches this exception. The VS debugger recognizes that the forced exception is unhandled and takes me to the place where is thrown, letting me know it is an unhandled exception. Why doesn't my handler catch it?  Running without the debugger, the exception throws, the timer thread crashes, the service continues merrily along, and nothing gets logged anywhere.  That is NOT the result I need.  What are the people for whom this works doing that I am not doing? How can I at least get the offe

doesn't work (using IIS 6.0)

HiI'm getting errors with an application on our test web server, which has .NET 4.0 installed, when I input HTML into a form.  I get the usual errors of:A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the clientThis is being caused by the change in .NET 4.0 that disables switching off automatic validation for HTML input.I can fix this on my local development machine by adding the <httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" /> directive to the <system.web> section of my root web.config, and .NET then honours the <pages validateRequest="false" /> directive that's in the same root web.config.  Strangely, I needed to restart IIS on my local machine (which is version 5.1) for this change to work.When I deploy the root web.config to our test server however, I'm still getting the validation errors.  I've tried using run > iisreset, stopping and starting IIS (which is version 6.0 on the test server), and I've even restarted the server to fully clear out .NET.  My application is definitely picking up the new root web.config (I've tested this), however the <httpRuntime requestValidationMode="2.0" /> directive seems to just be ignored.My application is configured as a  .NET 4.0 application on both my local machine and on the test server.  I've tried rebuilding the a

Workflow doesn't work anymore after renaming list

Hi All, I have created a list with the name "helpdesk test". After testing this list i renamed the list to "helpdesk". I did the rename by the list settings.  To this list i attached some workflows, with Sharepoint designer,  that have to start when a new item is created. All worked fine but after the rename the workflows don't work anymore. When i start the workflows manually from the list all works fine. Is there a way to rename a list and let the workflows work as before? Thanks in advance. Laurens.

Web Front End does not work - service unavailable

Greetings I had problem with installing reporting services integrated with moss 2007, i somehow installed moss 2007 (web front end for the pc which will have RS instaled) without IIS, then IIS wouldnt install at all, and i decided to start over: So, i have two PC's (a PC and a virtual, to be percise). CONDORPC Has the Office Sharepoint 2007 installed and running (main server). Has SQL for the sharepoint and everything. MOSS2K7 Is the new clean install of 2008 server.   What i have installed and done to 2008 server: - Installed IIS. At first it didnt install because it had numerous problems (error log was infested with something like "could not change state of package XXX to installed state"). It asked to reboot to rollback. After reboot at second install attempt it installed correctly. - Turned off default IIS website - Installed SQL database engine as in this tutorial (http://mosshowto.blogspot.com/2009/03/reporting-services-sharepoint-multiple.html#Step-4:-Installation-of-SharePoint-2007-on-SSRS2008SPIM) This SQL will house my reporting services databases. The service is ran by network service local account. - Installed SQL RS as in the tutorial. Didnt configure it yet. It is running as domain account. - Installed .NET framework required by moss (funny how it tried to access the internet to download something athough it was a complete full download for standal

Following instructions to bootstrap .NET 3.5 SP1 doesn't work

I'm trying to use msbuild GenerateBootstrapper task to distribute a .net application with the framework, without the need of internet connection to install it.  I've found many posts that all lead to the same instructions in here: Enable Samesite for the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 bootstrapper After following the instructions, I still cannot generate the bootstrapper. The more obvious issue I can see is that extracting the files from dotNetFx35.exe does not extract the same list of files and folders than shown on the readme file (for example TOOLS folders are not there). What am I doing wrong? Am I following old instructions?

Accessing a published web service gives null ref exception. Won't occur in test though?

I have an Asp.net web service that I created using Visual Studio 2005. I can acess the web service in my testenvironment, call methods and return data as expected. If this web service is published to the outside world (Outside of the company firewall), it will return a null reference exception. Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? The same code is being used,against thesame database. The only difference is that the published website is giving back the null reference exception. If I type in the URL for the web service "https://secure.theSiteGeist.com/wsIndigo.asmx" a list of methods forthe web service is displayed in my browser. Yet if I try and call any methods on the web service I getback the null reference exception. Note that the URL I posted above is not the real name of my web service, but isjust used for reference sake.
