Silverlight Enabled WCF Service and Silverlight 2 Project Deployment.

    Question

  • Hi Guys, I'm stuck and would appreciate it if someone could give me some help.  This is my first shot at creating a Silverlight application.

    Problem:  After deploying the silverlight project to the production machine (XP professional) it runs great locally if I point it to the localhost in the web.config and ServiceReferences.clientconfig. As soon as I change it from localhost to the servername it can no longer communicate with the WCF service.

    Works: <endpoint address="http://localhost/MyProgram/Services/Service1.svc

    Fails: <endpoint address="http://<ServerName>/MyProgram/Services/Service1.svc

     

    I get the Error: "Unhandled Error in Silverlight 2 application An exception occurred during the operation, making the result invalid. Check  InnerException for exception details. At system.componentModel.AsyncCompletedEventArgs.RaisedExceptionIfNessesary ....

    Basically its no longer hitting the webservice.

    I'm running IIS 6.0. 

    Any Help would be great.

    Thanks,

     Craig

  • Can you access the service with the server name?  Open the browser and manually paste the URL to see if that works:

    "http://<ServerName>/MyProgram/Services/Service1.svc

    Next make sure all your communication is working by profiling it.  You can use the Web Development Helper to aid you in that and it will let you know if: your clientaccesspolicy.xml file is OK, your service is being reached, your service is responding properly with a well formed message:

  • Thank you for your reply.  I downloaded the Web Developer Helper, did an IISReset and it works now. Thank you so much for you time in being willing to lend a helping hand.

    Thank you.
