Update available for WCF Data Services 5.0.0 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Earlier today an update for WCF Data Services version 5.0.0 was released. This update includes important bug fixes and affects all customers publishing WCF Data Services. If you are using LightSwitch in Visual Studio 2012 (which creates middle-tier WCF Data Services) we encourage you to also install this update. 

    To get the latest bits,

    1-    Download & install the update - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29306

    2-    Open your LightSwitch project & recompile

    3-    Re-deploy your application

    Alternatively, you can copy the updates directly to your deployed applications. After installing the update, the server binaries will be under \program files (x86)\Microsoft WCF Data services\5.0\bin\.NETFramework\

    Depending on your publish target, inject the new WCF Data Services dlls into the published folders:

    Desktop 2 Tier - "…\Publish\Application Files\bin\"
    IIS - "…\inetpub\wwwroot\...\bin"
    Azure - "/site/wwwroot/bin"

    The new server dlls that you need to copy are:
