We have a web project with a asmx web service. We have one installation that the web service will not work however the rest of the sites (and different servers) run fine. I have used the same published code and put it on two different servers and one works while the other doesn't. We need to figure out how to fix this issue on the broken server.

What we have done so far.
Re-register .net 4.0 using the command line.
Install WebService 3.0, based on some info found on Google.

Please no Google Search results, we have ran through most of the Google search results suggestions, and this is a bit urgent to get resolved.
Thanks

Instead of performing a publish/deploy take the entire code directory from the working server and copy it to the non-working server. I would recommend deleting all content on the non-working server first, but it isn't a must.

Compare your website settings and configurations in IIS for each site. One may be set for .Net 2.x when it should be 4.x.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Both are set to 4.0 and I compared all the settings.
Please keep in mind the website works, just the web-service page throws this error.

Here is what I came up with, I selected to "Allow this precompiled site to be updatable" and it works now.
Any info on what this really changes? or what the root problem is?
