“Revert To Parent” Option at IIS, The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler.

Lately, i h ad changed my local deployment method for webservices that are used during development.

I am directly publishing the web service to iis folder, BUT got stuck with problem that it wont run and give me following error

HTTP Error 404.17 – Not Found

The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler.

Now,  everything seemed to be in place but it was handler mapping settings that somehow got lost for the site.

So i used “Revert to Parent” within handler mapping icon under website’s feature view in IIS7.

I hope this helps out some folks.

Telerik Reporting Deployment For Silverlight

We were facing problem in deploying Telerik Report for Silverlight in Production Enviornment.

The Solution to preblem is that to have the following assemblies are needed to be set as “Copy As Local = true” in your WEB PROJECT

  • Your Reporting Library For Telerik Reports
  • Telerik.Reportig
  • Telerik.Reporting.Service
  • System.ServiceModel

Also, ReportService.svc needs to be exist at Root Folder of web project. (Although not necessary you can always change it from your code)

I hope this saves somebody lots of time.
