Getting 'GetAuthenticationInfo' Error for simple LightSwitch 2012 application in Window 2003/IIS 6.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am getting 'GetAuthenticationInfo' error for a simple LightSwitch application developed using Visual Studio 2014.

    I followed all suggested solution in forums includes complete reinstallation IIS 6.0 in Window 2003, Using Web Platform installer, bot not able to fix the issue.

    Error begins from with following request

    GET ../Microsoft.LightSwitch.Client;component/screens/screenpresentation/internalframework/resources/resources/x.png HTTP/1.1

    thows 401 error,

    GET "../BasicWeb/Web/Microsoft-LightSwitch-Security-ServerGenerated-Implementation-AuthenticationService.svc/binary/GetAuthenticationInfo HTTP/1.1

    response throws 404 error

    It looks like some setting went wrong but not able to track.

    Any suggestion or help may solve my 1 week struggle of fixing the issue.

  • Problem solved.

    By enabling  ASP.Net V4.0.30319 ('Allowed') under 'Web Service Extension' folder in 'Window 2003' IIS Manager.

    We believe the above extension is set to 'Prohibited' state,  somehow while Window 2003 was updated with Security Patch or becuase of our deployement play.
