Adding Web Service asmx page to existing asp.net web application not working

I want to add a web service interface to an existing ASP.NET web application.  In Visual Studio 2005, I added the Web Service template to the main web application http project which added the asmx page shown below.  When I try to run the asmx page, it just displays the contents of the file in the browser; it does not run it as a web service.  Why is it doing this?  I am able to add web services outside of an existing web application; I am having trouble just adding an asmx page to my existing asp.net web application.

Any ideas?
<%@ WebService Language="C#" Class="Test2" %>
 
using System;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Services;
using System.Web.Services.Protocols;
 
[WebService(Namespace = "http://tempuri.org/")]
[WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)]
public class Test2  : System.Web.Services.WebService {
 
    [WebMethod]
    public string HelloWorld() {
        return "Hello World";
    }
    
}

does your web.config file have the http handlers for .asmx files?


eg
<remove verb="*" path="*.asmx"/>
      <add verb="*" path="*.asmx" validate="false" type="System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptHandlerFactory, System.Web.Extensions, Version=1.0.61025.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/>

Thanks for the response.

It did not have the handler; I did add it, but it did not make a difference.  Interestingly, if I use Visual Studio to build a Web Service project, it does not add the asmx handler to the web.config file.  In my case though, I need to add web service support to an existing asp.net application.

Actually, adding the handler did fix the problem.  IE didn't recognize the change until I refreshed even though I clicked on the asmx page in 'View in Browser' in Visual Studio.  Thanks much.
