I have the same problem as TOM on the 04/29/02.
The IE only shows the source code of http://localhost/ws/helloservice1.asmx.
I also installed Win XP Home Edition from scratch and had no problems.
Can anyone help me ?

Hi Rupert,

Sounds like your webserver does not parse .asmx-files, but puts them directly
to the output, as if it were normal textfiles. Check your IIS-configurations
on that /ws (virtual) directory:

Go to your IIS-admin and have a look at the property pages of your /ws dir. On
the Virtual Directory sheet, you should see a button names "Configuration".
When you click it, you get a new dialog, which shows you the mappings that are
made by the webserver. Check to make sure that .asmx-files are mapped (and
thus parsed) before they are outputted. They should be mapped to something
like this:


(Depending on your configuration.)
