- You sure you set correct .NET framework version in IIS?
- You sure that web service is working perfectly fine in your dev environment in Visual Studio?

- >.net framework version is set correctly in IIS .
- > in visual studio itself ,still developing, when I created a sample web servie and pressed F5, this error is coming. I dint deploy it any where.

If you see 500 internal error in VS, you should be able to debug and see it. Using VS internal webserver? What version of VS & .NET?
Sounds like you are doing something wrong at basic level and should be easy to troubleshoot for you and resolve.

The error was coming because of some services in IIS. I have changed settings in IIS and again registered the .Net version with aspnet_iisreg -i command.

Its working fine now..

What exactly fixed it? What was the setting in IIS? Please share.

I checked the event logs and error was regarding W3SVC service and I checked in net about that and did some changes. I was in a hurry so I dint make a note of what are all changes I did. Sorry for that..

but at the end I found that .net version is not registerd so I used that commad to register version
