This is a sneaky little devil, this one. If you’ve done everything right and your site still isn’t being served up correctly, try this little trick:

Step 1: Collect Underpants by opening up IIS Manager and right clicking on “Web Service Extensions”:

Web Service Extensions

Web Service Extensions

Step 2: Select “Allow all Web service extensions for a specific application”

Step 3: Select “ASP.NET v4.0.30319″ from the drop down and click “Ok”:
Allow ASP.NET v4.0.30319
