           I am trying to install a web service that one of the programmers wrote on a IIS 6.0 server (Windows 2003 server). I created a virtual directory with the myservice.asmx file,web.config,global.asax and a bin directory which has the myservice.dll. when i call the asmx file from the browser, it shows up as The page cannot be found. Even if i browse from IIS it is displaying the error. Ami missing some thing here....please helppppp

    I'm not a pro in this particular subject, but; To call the application from the browser, do you need to be running a server of some kind?

    did you install the .NET framework and did you install ??

    Expert Comment

    If you have .NET framework installed, this can also be caused by an improperly handled exception occuring during application start.

    To exclude configuration issue you could ask your developer to build a setup for the webservice, that's only a few clicks in vs 2003.
    Setup will take care folders and virtual dir are created with the correct properties and security settings.
