Web service issues

I have a web service written in asp.net (that was working just fine until today) deployed on a remote server.

The webservice is vehicleinfo.asmx

The weird thing is I run the web service code from vs on my local box and all runs well.

I have a configuration setting for database and have it pointed to the production sql server and all is fine

If I tried to execut the web service on the remot machine I get to the screen with the list of methods but when I try to invoke one.  It returns the ever helpful HTTP 500 Internal Server Error

Just to make sure I copied the  files



web config

along with the bin files

back to the remote server from my local machine

still same thing

I got a utility called wcfstorm and put in the url to the web service
It returned a

 <Action isNull="true"/>

 <HelpLink isNull="true"/>

 I looked up  80070005 and it seems to point to a permission error but everything looks fine

Any ideas????

The interop in the message seems to say that a COM object is involved. These have to be registered at the web server (regsvr32). Verify any objects that need to be available are actually installed and registered.

Perhaps search for "asp.net com interopo" for more info.

Here's an example article: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/COM/cominterop.aspx

Yes, the 5 error is a standard Permissions/access hresult for Windows.  What changed today from yesterday?  Were any patches, group policy or account modifications made?

ooops accidently hit submit before I was finished typing.

my earlier post had to do with moving the service to a different machine

This one has to do with the service being on the same machine.

Just had to change security
