Hello experts,

An application is functioning properly when I tested it using Microsoft WCF Test Client.

However, when the WCF HTTP Activation is unavailable, this error message occurred:

What will I do when I encounter this problem again?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks!

Good day Herbert, the solution to this problem is;

Check your web service for any errors to prevent instances of the errors happening again.

The web service should be exposing metadata in the following format;

<behaviors>

        <service Behaviors>

           <behavior name=Mybehavior>

             <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="True" />
          </behavior>
         </serviceBehaviors>
</behaviors>
And your service would be using behaviorConfiguration="myBehavior"

With this format of the metadata and a fresh proxy of the web service, the error should be solved since the conflicts will  be eliminated. Thanks

Hi Herbert,

Your problem stated here is easy to solve because it has been experienced formerly and solved. Here are the things you need to do for your software to work well;

  • Ensure you maintain your web browser up to date by installing the latest updates and web browser.
  • Ensure the proxy is well arranged and defined
  • Your proxy should have the following metadata;

      <behaviors>
            <serviceBehaviors>
                <behavior name="myBevaior">
                    <serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="True" />
                </behavior>
            </serviceBehaviors>
</behaviors>

And your service would be using behaviorConfiguration="myBehavior"

With these settings, your software should work properly after restarting the software. Ensure your settings are done properly.

Thanks, it should work.
