Hi.
I have an asp.net angular application using visual studio 2013.
ok. if I run this application with IISExpress, it works fine. but, if I change to IIS, I got the title message above.

the source code of the page looks good, but the angular view is not loaded, so the display is totally empty.

thx in advance

This is a message from the browser because the MIME type is serving your script file (javascript?) as text.  They should be served as text/javascript (assuming javascript).

When including javascript in your site you should use the type

<script src="..." type="text/javascript"></script>

thx Rob for your attention.
I put type=text/javascript and text/css in all scripts and css and I still got the problem.

but why this would be a problem in IIS and not in IISexpress?

Because you can control how certain extensions can be served with what mime types. Maybe it's a default in the express version but is more flexible in iis?

yes, it looks like IIS you can specify the MIME type based on any extension.  Please confirm what you have for your .js and .css extensions as indicated by this screenshot of mine:

Ok. I got the Mime Types. Thx for your help.
Checked. all types are set correctly.

Meanwhile, I created another angular project, from scratch and it works ok. So I think the problem is the solution.

I will recreate my solution.

thx for your help and attention.

That's good to hear. At least you knew by ruling things out that it was your solution causing the issue.

Glad to have helped.
