I found that none of the above solutions worked for me on a newly built Windows 2012R2 server. I had 3.5 and 4.5 installed as both Frameworks and ASP.NET Features. Recompiling my application as Full rather than Client made no difference. Then I tried browsing to the Default Web Site and when that gave the same error I started to think something fundamental was wrong.

The solution I found was to edit the web.config in both C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Config and C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\Config

(assuming that you may use either 32 or 64 bit application pools)

and simply comment out the reference to System.ServiceModel.Web ie:


<add assembly="System.ServiceModel.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/>


<!--add assembly="System.ServiceModel.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35"/-->

The Default Web Site then loaded correctly and so did my own ASP.NET system


Try adding this to your assembly list:

<add assembly="System.ServiceModel.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35" />

Also if you don't have .NET 4.0, get it here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=17718


I encountered such a situation in following circumstances: Windows Server 2012 R2 hosts in IIS 2 web applications: one compiles against .NET 3.5 another - to .NET 4.5.1. Both are running in Intergrated pipeline Server have installed .NET 3.5/4.0/4.5/4.5.1 with latest updates. Issue was encountered in application on .NET 3.5. Fix was to update web.config transform with

<system.webServer> <handlers> <remove name="svc-Integrated-4.0" xdt:Transform="Insert" /> </handlers> </system.webServer>

As far as I understand, System.ServiceModel.Web, Version= could not be loaded in application pool running against ASP.NET 2.0 (for apps, compiled against .NET 3.5), while svc-Integrated-4.0 handler tries to load it.
