  • install xml services - web services extensions

    Apr 24, 2007 09:13 PM|johnalam|LINK

    Guys:

    I am trying to install XML services on IIS 5.1 on windows XP pro.   I just want to be able to make a POST to wpnbr.dll and see what results I get.

    I am following some installation instruction and they all refer to "Web services extension" tab which should show up within IIS manager, after expanding the local computer icon.  I do not see this in my inetmgr.exe.

     I have enabled ASP.NET for the default web site, and i have installed frontpage extensions.  Still cannot get to the web services extensions options.

    Please help a newbie.

    Thanks.

    IIS 5.1 didn't have the Web Service Extension List. It should work just by bypassing this step.

    The Web Services extensions only refers to IIS 6.

    Those are the generic instructions for configuring Web Service Extensions in IIS 6.  What I'm asking for are the instructions for installing XML Services.

    Where did you get wpnbr.dll from?

    You either need to install .NET 1.1 or 2.0 framework. This supports xml web services already.  Or download and use the WSE 3.0, which needs .NET 2.0.   http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=018A09FD-3A74-43C5-8EC1-8D789091255D&displaylang=en  I'd recommend 2.0 if you are getting started.

    Excellent point, but he says he's "already enabled ASP.NET" - so I'm confused about exactly what he is trying to do ...  : )

    wpnbr.dll is what Citrix uses for XML.  I may have been confused.  I thought that wpnbr.dll was an IIS object but it may be a Citrix piece.

    here is where my confusion came from:

    If Microsoft IIS is installed, the administrator of the MetaFrame XP installation is given the option to install the Citrix XML Service and share a port with IIS.

    In fact, no separate XML Service is running. IIS serves the XML data using an ISAPI filter named Wpnbr.dll located in the \Inetpub\Scripts folder. To remove the Citrix XML Service functionality from your MetaFrame server, simply rename or delete the Wpnbr.dll file.

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes, from what I could find with Google, wpnbr.dll is purely Citrix related.

    Ahh yes, Citrix.  I was a Citrix admin for many years.  http://support.citrix.com/isearch!execute.jspa?searchQuery=wpnbr.dll&searchType=0  Check out Citrix's site for further information.
