SQL XML SOAP Web Service Setup Error?

I have a question. I am trying to create a SOAP Web Service using MS SQL Server 2000 with the SQLXML 3 sp 2 extension.

I was able to configure and run a template/XML based example without any problem, but when I try to create a SOAP service, it successfully creates the SSC and WSDL file, but I am unable to pull up the WSDL file in a browser.  When I point to it, I get the following error message:

The name of the service is soaptest, and I am pointing to the WSDL with the following URL (with the actual domain just modified for this posting)


HResult: 0x80004005
Source: Microsoft SQL isapi extension
Description: There should be no path or parameters after a SOAP vname.

When I just type


I get the following error message:

HResult: 0x80004005
Source: Microsoft SQL isapi extension
Description: The query string is incorrect for a SOAP GET. Query string must be = "WSDL"

What am I doing wrong?  Is this some sort of configuration issue?
