Enabling SVC MIME Type on a Windows Server 2008 machine

You must edit the Application Host configuration file, used by IIS. You must ensure that your IIS server has all service roles assigned, other than FTP, before installing CCF 2009.

To modify the Application Host configuration file:

  1. Open the applicationHost.config file in Visual Studio or any other editor. This file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32\Inetsrv\Config\.
  2. In the staticContent section add the following mime entry for .svc file:
  3. <mimeMap fileExtension=".svc" mimeType="application/octet-stream" />

  4. Save and close the file.
  5. Ensure you can browse through the CCF websites in IIS.
