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.
