ASMX Web service created with VS 2008 has Parse Error when published with IIS 6

bobcann used Ask the Experts™
I have an ASMX webservice I created using Visual Studio 2008.
When compiled and published to a box with server 2008 (64 Bit OS) that has IIS 7 it works.
However when published to a Server 2003 (32 Bit OS) with .NET Framework 3.5 sp1 installed that has IIS 6.

The following error comes up when trying to open the published web service’s Service.asmx file in a web browse. Does anyone know a fix for this? Thank you for any help you give.:

Server Error in '/' Application.

The bottom line there says it's trying to use .NET Version 2.  Do you have .NET 3.5 enabled for that application?


Thank you.
