Can someone tell me why this is running ok on my local build but not working when deployed to server. On server it generates error on page warning at bottom left hand corner, when I click to see message it tells me that JSON is not supported.

What is so different in that its coming from the server?

When I copy the entire site from server to local it runs perfect so its not a code difference.

                type: "POST",
                url: "ContractsList.aspx/StoreSearch",
                data: JSON.stringify(DTO),
                contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
                dataType: "json",
                success: function(result, txtstatus) {
