So I had a simple project that runs great when I hit play in Visual Studio 2013. Everything works fine. However, i built it and moved all the files over into inetpub\wwwroot\myproj
but now when try to navigate to

file:///C:/inetpub/wwwroot/myproj/ProcessDataFiles.asmx

i get an error:

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: file:///C:/inetpub/wwwroot/myproj/ProcessDataFiles.asmx
Line Number 1, Column 2:<%@ WebService Language="C#" CodeBehind="ProcessDataFiles.asmx.cs" Class="ProjServer.DataFiles" %>
-^


I have no idea what this means and can't seem to find anything wrong. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Register iis with the version of .net framework (.net 4.0 or .net 3.5 etc.)
Find aspnet_regiis.exe for the version you want to install .  for example C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319
aspnet_regiis –i ( it will register iis version)
aspnet_regiis -k W3SVC  (it will Remove all scriptmaps to any version of ASP.NET from the  specified path, recursively (not supported on Windows Vista  and higher versions).
aspnet_regiis -s W3SVC  (it will Install scriptmaps for this version at the specified path,  recursively.)

If you have configured website / application under IIS, you should not access the file like file:///C:/inetpub/wwwroot/myproj/ProcessDataFiles.asmx
but, you should access like http://localhost[:<port Number>]/ProcessDataFiles.asmx
