Hi Experts!

I have jsut moved a web service from an old server to our brand spanking new flashy server.

Problem: When I browse to http://mydomain/api/Service.asmx I get the default IIS error message "The page cannot be found" - and it works perfectly on the old server

Both servers are Win2k3 and both are running ASP.NET2.0

I have checked the permissions, and firewall rules and dont know what else to do. The file is definately there!!!

Any suggestions???

ANSWER:

Add aspnet_isapi.dll to the Web Service Extension list in IIS and set it to Allowed - for some reason this must have been skipped when APS.NET2.0 was installed on the server
