HTTP 404 when accessing .svc file in IIS

I recently created a WCF service that works fine when tested from Visual Studio 2008. but when I deploy the project to IIS and I try to access the .svc file from IIS, I get this error :

"Server Error in '/' Application.The resource cannot be found. "


I've been having this issue for the past 4 days .

in the Handler Mappings of IIS Manager, I can see two entries for .svc :

svc-Integrated and svc-ISAPI-2.0

Answer

You need to add a mapping for the SVC extension to ASP.NET. The easiest way to do this is to run ServiceModelReg.exe -i from C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation. You may also need to enable ASP.NET if you haven't already done so.


If you are using Windows Server 2012, follow these instructions instead:
