MySQL + EntityFramework 4 crashes on remote server

I'm quite new to both Silverlight and Entity Framework.
I have started a new application that uses the Entity Framework to connect to a MySQL table. It is supposed to populate a grid with the entities from the table.

Everything works greate from the development machine.
The MySQL server is a remote server and do accept connections and everything is simply perfect here.

However after publishing (VS2010) the application to the webserver I've got stuck with this error:
On a line that does the Single() method of Linq there's an error saying that "Sequence contains no elements". There are elements on the database however. Double-checked here.

Using IE i get another error (status bar - alerts):

Unhandled Error in Silverlight Application Load operation failed for query 'GetSacado'. The remote server returned an error: NotFound. em
System.ServiceModel.DomainServices.Client.OperationBase.Complete(Exception error) em
System.ServiceModel.DomainServices.Client.LoadOperation.Complete(Exception error) em
System.ServiceModel.DomainServices.Client.DomainContext.CompleteLoad(IAsyncResult asyncResult) em
System.ServiceModel.DomainServices.Client.DomainContext.<>c__DisplayClass1b.<Load>b_17(Object)


That's it.
I can't run the remote debugger to check and I really don't know what's going on here...

I'm using MySQL Connector/Net 6.3.4.0


Any clue?

Is it possible that when on a live system the query will not return anything?

Can you post the query?

The query should return ONE (and only one) element.
It's a test query that I'm using that checks for a specific PK ('11111111111111').

Using the MySQL Workbench from any machine (same user that I've used to create the Entity Framework model) I'm able to see the specific row with no trouble.
Running on the development machine also works fine.
Running on a remote server it sticks with that error.

As I said the same website works fine if it's LOCAL but when I publish it to my intranet IIS or remote IIS (DiscountAsp) I have this same issue ("Sequence contains no elements").

I'm using this code to filter the data:

contexto.Load(contexto.GetSacadoQuery().Where(_sacado => _sacado.documento.Equals('11111111111111'))).Completed += loadSacado_Completed;

However if I'm not mistaken if this code works local and since it was not changed before publish, it should keep working there also...

Anyway, it is NOT possible that the query would not return data.
And it works on the development machine (development IIS).
Just not on a deployment IIS environment.

Then I would check the config of the two machine and see what differs. I am not an ASP .Net programmer so I will most likely not be of much help then.

Switched to SQL Server.
Not working too.

So it is NOT related to MySQL.
It's something related to the IIS and WCF RIA.

Keep getting the same errors.

Clues?

Now I have found the error but no solution yet.

On the development machine I can access the service created by WCF-RIA:
http://localhost:58090/ClientBin/WebNS-Web-Services-BoletoService.svc

However on the remote (intranet) server I cannot.
Accessing http://sites:2000/ClientBin/WebNS-Web-Services-BoletoService.svc shows me an 404 error.

Any clue here?
I may have to configure the IIS for this, but I'm not sure how and what needs to be done...

Solution found.

Since I'm new to Entity Framework, Silverlight, WCF, RIA and related stuff, I didn't fully understand the whole process of getting the data from the DB to the silverlight page.

After reading some blogs on how to deploy and how this works, I decided to give a try to Fiddler.

So I discovered that my service (SVC) could not be found.

I decided to try on the development IIS. Worked.
However on the deployment IIS the service did nt exsit.

So I started digging around that for a while and found an article that told me to upload the 3 DLLs form System.ServiceModel that aew referenced on my Web project. I was already deploying 2 of them, but NOT the EntityFramework one.

After this, the error on the service changed from 404 to an ASP error page telling me that "'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Diagnostics.ServiceModelSink" could not be loaded.

I found two articles about this error:
http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/wcf/thread/07ed7bd1-2c73-430b-a414-9a57e3aaf371
and
http://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/593275/microsoft-visualstudio-diagnostics-servicemodelsink-assembly-fails-to-load-in-some-cases-for-no-apparent-reason



Since I (at least for now) do not need this assembly, just removed it from the machine.conf as the first article told me to.
After that everything was just fine =)
