Hi

We have had trouble deploying our web services using WCF / .NET v3.5 on IIS v6.

We are developing web services using RESTful/JSON and although it works nicely locally, we cant get it to deploy correctgly.

Further details:

- WCF (Window Communication Foundation)
- .NET v3.5
- Windows Server 2003,
- IIS v6

Have any of you guys some something similar?

Question is the website set to use .Net 3.5 and not 2.0 this can cause some problems, and is easy to lookover when setting up the production server.

Thanks - I'll find out.
Btw, do you know where exactly is this set?
(.NET has definitely been installed on the machine...)

Open IIS Manager. In navigation pane, find the .NET web site and right click on it. Select "Properties". Then select "ASP.NET" tab. First dropdown on that screen gives you option to select a different version of .NET.

First dropdown on that screen gives you option to select a different version of .NET.

But, even if you have 3.5 installed you won't see it in this dropdown as 3.5 is basically 2.0 with a few extra libraries.

I usually check the following folders to see what is installed on the server:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\
