IIS deploy error with .Net WCF service RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a WCF service.svc that I'm trying to deploy in IIS. I created an IIS application under the Default Web Site for the service using the .net 4.5 application pool, but when I try to browse the .svc file from within the IIS manager, the browser reports the following error "localhost is currently unable to handle this request".

    If I click browse on the .svc file from within VS it resolves correctly to the WSDL metadata page and if I create an IIS application using the path in Visual Studio where the service folder resides it works and the url resolves. I don't understand why after I publish the service to another folder location that it doesn't work in IIS. Somehow it seems tied to Visual Studio installed location.

    Can someone help me understand why this is? I need to be able to publish this service along w/ the associated bin files to another client system and have it work. 

    Tnx in advance.
