Problem with WebService after upgrade to ASP.Net 3.5 - Request format is unrecognized for URL unexpectedly ending in '/$metadata'.

Hello Experts,

I have a large web site with 200+ pages and also a web service.

I use a VB program to make calls against the web service.

The web service was working fine when I was using .Net 2.0

Visual Studioi got updated to .Net 3.5 automatically - so I had to convert the web site's web.config.

Now, when I delete then re-add the web service to the VB program it causes an error in the web site. I then trap the error and write the error details into a SQL Server database.

The error in the web site when trying to add the web service into the VB program is
Request format is unrecognized for URL unexpectedly ending in '/$metadata'.

I don't know what is happening. Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Without seeing the web service, I'm only guessing, try adding this to your web.config file.
<webServices>
   <protocols>
        <add name="HttpGet"/>
        <add name="HttpPost"/>    
   </protocols>
</webServices>
