WebService and WebSite tutorial sample apps are not working

OS: Windows XP Professional

A. Webservice

1. Installed Ants without IIS
2. Install IIS ver 5
3. Modify Ants installation adding in Tutorial Samples
4. I have .net framework 1.1 running on my machine.
5. Open browser and trying to go to http://localhost/ANTSLoadTutorialWebSer ... yeeDetails
6. I get this:
<%@ WebService Language="c#" Codebehind="Employees.asmx.cs" Class="ANTSLoadTutorialWebService.Employees" %>
7. The tutorial help has this instruction:
For example, click on the GetEmployeeDetails link, enter an employeeID of 1 and click on the 'Invoke' button. This makes a call to the web service and returns an XML file containing information about employee number 1.

Question: I don't see any invoke button and there is no way to enter employee ID

Something is not right. Has anyone of you encountered this problem? Can you help me?

Should I uninstall and install a fresh copy instead or are there other solutions?

B. Website
1. When I go to http://localhost/ANTSLoadTutorialWebSite/
2. I just see the banner.jpg with no link, buttons or anything. What can be tested from this sample application? There might be some objects missing.

Any help is much appreciated.

    Hi Janet,

    It sounds as if the ASP .NET code isn't running at all. This could be because the scriptmap is incorrect. Can you try this?

    Open a command prompt.
    Change directory to %systemroot%\Microsoft.net\Framework\v1.1.4322
    run aspnet_regiis -lk

    This will show the versions of ASP.net installed in each virtual directory. If you do not see ANTSLoadTutorialWebService or Website listed, use aspnet_regiis -sn to register it with ASP. net.
  • Hi Brian,

    I did the ff:

    1. went to c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v1.1.4322
    2. executed aspnet_regiis -lk
    3. returned "cannot find any installed versioin"
    4. went to c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v1.1.4322
    5. executed aspnet_regiis -sn c:\progra~1\ants load\tutorial\webservice or
    executed aspnet_regiis -sn c:\progra~1\ants load\tutorial\website
    6. returns me the aspnet_regiis help list

    Any advice?

    Hello Janet,

    You want to install ASP .NET on the virtual directory rather than the physical directory. So the command should be:
    aspnet_regiis -sn W3SVC/1/Root/ANTSLoadTutorialWebsite

    aspnet_regiis -sn W3SVC/1/Root/ANTSLoadTutorialWebService
    I think that should just about do the trick.
  • After Registering asp.net scripting for 1.1.4322.0 was successful, I checked
    c:windows\microsoft.net\framework\v1.1.4322 using aspnet_regiis -lk and the ff is included:

    w3svc/1/root/antsloadtutorialwebsite/ 1.1.4322.0
    w3svc/1/root/antsloadtutorialwebservice/ 1.1.4322

    But now when I try to access the tutorial sites e.g.
    http://localhost/antsloadtutorialwebsite or

    I get the page cannot be displayed http 500 - internal server error.

    I Restarted my Computer and tried it again, but I got the same error.

    Hmm... back to square one. : (. Any advice?

    Maybe simply starting over would get it working? Make sure that ASP .NET is installed by default with aspnet_regiis -i, then run the ANTS Load installation again, modify it to remove the samples, and run it again to re-install the samples.
