when i try to install windows installer 3.0 it says "Setup has detected that the service pack version of this system is newer than the update you are applying. there is no need to install this update". But i guess the windows installer 3.0 doesnt know I need it for .net 2.0.
thank you vega, the exact error message is "prerequisite programs are missing, setup has detected that the following prerequisite programs are not installed: Microsoft Windows Installer 3.0". The problem is that windows installer 3.0 wont allow me to install it. What should I do, I have tried with my spare pc which is windows server 2000, it installed perfectly.
I hope to be in the right forum with this question:
1/ I would like to create a webservice method, that returns the username of the user that executes its assembly. I hope to be clear here. Typically it would be the ASPNET user that is returned, but i want to get the exact user.
2/ I also would like to return the IIS folder in which the webservice files are installed. When i use "return Directory.GetCurrentDirectory();", then i get "c:\windows\system32". But i'd like to have "c:\inetpub\wwwroot\bin" or something like that.
Is this possible? And if so ... what do i have to do ?
I have created web service using C#, VS2005. I can browse the web service and check whether the web methods are working fine or not (on my develoment server); so far so good.
I want to deploy this web service on other host, so I created web setup project from VS2005 and created installables. I ran these installables on other host and they got added too (I checked it through IIS manager).
Now when I browse the web service I get the following error message.
"The page cannot be found.
The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable. "
Could someone let me know what exactly am I missing here.
I am new to both C# and web services, so any kind of help would be much appreciated.
