404.3 Error browsing to WCF Service in the browser

PROBLEM: You try to hit your WCF Service and get an error. When you try to browse to it you get the following error: HTTP Error 404.3 - Not Found The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the extension configuration. If the page is a script, add a handler. If the file should be downloaded, add a MIME map.

SOLUTION: This usually means that WCF is not registered with IIS. You can manually register it by clicking on start and run and running the following command: C:\windows\Microsoft.Net\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation\servicemodelreg.exe -i If the directory does not exist then it means the proper version of the .net framework is not installed. You can install the proper version from the Microsoft site.
