I have an ASP.NET website which I thought was working fine but I'm looking at the event viewer and I see a load of these warnings.

Any ideas?

    This solution does not work for me.
    My web service works on our development machines (Windows 7) and on our test server (Windows Server 2008 R2), but it doesn't work on our production server (Windows Server 2008).
    The only difference I have found is that it works on IIS 7.5 and not on IIS 7.0. Any sense?
    Any solution?
