.NET 2013 ASMX Web Service Could Not Create Type

I upgraded a .NET 2008 app to 2013.  There is a web service in the application.  I am receiving below error:

Could not create type 'PremiumAdmin.webService.getInsuredInfo'.      

I think the issue is associated with the class on the ASMX page.  

ASMX
<%@ WebService Language="c#" Codebehind="~/App_Code/webService/getInsuredInfo.asmx.cs" 
    Class="PremiumAdmin.webService.getInsuredInfo" %>

Open in new window


ASMX.cs
namespace PremiumAdmin.webService
{
	/// <summary>
	/// Summary description for getInsuredInfo.
	/// </summary>
	[WebService(Namespace="http://mywebsite.com/webservices/")]
	public class getInsuredInfo : System.Web.Services.WebService
	{
		public getInsuredInfo()
		{
			//CODEGEN: This call is required by the ASP.NET Web Services Designer
			InitializeComponent();
		}

Open in new window


This does not have issues in .NET 2008.  Any ideas?

Thanks

How many web methods do you have?

How complex is the web service?

Would recreating in WCF be a possibility?

Can't create a WCF at the moment.  I created a web application.  I copied the .NET 2008 website to the .NET 2013 web app.  I included all the files.  When compiling I am getting that it can't create the type.

Also, on the asmx page it says on the codebehind="~/App_Code/webService/getInsurcedInfo.asmx.cs" (when I hover over it) that it can't find that file but the file is exactly there.

I believe that this is a case where migration doesn't work.

The attribute in your file is "Codebehind", but in the new file, it is "CodeBehind".  Try changing the attribute to "CodeBehind".

<%@ WebService Language="C#" CodeBehind="EchoWebService.asmx.cs" Class="EchoWebService.EchoWebService" %>

Can you do a quick test, by creating a new web service, and adding a web method,

1) Create an empty ASP.NET web project

2) Set target framework to 4.5

3) Add an .asmx web service

4) Add a web method

5) Compile

There is something going on that I can't see.  

What files are included in the project?

"I copied the .NET 2008 website to the .NET 2013 web app.  I included all the files.  When compiling I am getting that it can't create the type."
Can you explain how you did this?
