I have a web application in which i have one web service called WebService.asmx
Now, i have created one windows application and added web reference in it for Webservice.asmx.
When i build this windows application in debug mode, it works fine, also executes properly.
But when i build this application in Release mode, it gives 0 errors and 0 warnings, but when i execute the application, it cant get web reference.
Also, when i try to update web reference, it gives error message as "The HTML document does not contain web service discovery information".

Can anyone tell me, how to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

And where is hosted your .asmx?

I hosted that web service on IIS. I can access it from browser

But services contains special page with configuration. Maybe this is disabled.

Find url to which your windows application is revering and see it is working.

There is no such thing as "Release mode". "Release" is just one of the "configuration" names. Usually, in this configuration debug information is not available, full optimization is applied.

It is quite possible to screw up functionality depending on these differences, for example, by using precompiler condition. Without seeing your code, hard to say anything more certain.

do you meant to say, you build application and manually hosted on IIS is working. but publishing is not working ?

Solution 1

I think i got the solution.
The folder which contains web service in web application doesn't have access permissions. so other application cannot access web service, when i added folder permissions in web.config, it is working. Also, i have added protocols in web.config as

        <add name="HttpGet"/>
        <add name="HttpPost"/>
        <add name="HttpSoap"/>
