HELP! Timeout when accessing Webservice.

Posts: n/a
I have a solution that contains a web service and a web site. I was
working on it all day Monday with no problems.

Tuesday morning it stopped working, but ONLY when run from inside
Visual Studio (VS). Now, when I run it from inside VS, my web site
times out when trying to access the web service. The initial login
page comes up OK so I enter my user name and password and hit enter,
at that time the web site attempts to contact the web service, and
that is when the time out error occurs.

If I compile the solution and then load IE and access the website
OUTSIDE of VS, everything works fine.

After the timeout occurs my machine behaves very strangely.
Applications that were already running continue to run, but I am
unable to start any new applications even though the Start button
continues to function. I cannot bring up the windows task manager and
I cannot shut down windows. Ctrl-Alt-Del does nothing. My only
option is to power the machine down.

Here is what I have done so far to try to diagnose the problem (Note:
nothing has helped!)...

1 - Restored a source backup from the weekend.
2 - Restored a source backup from last week.
3 - De-installed IIS and VS.NET 2003, re-installed IIS and VS.NET

Because none of that helped, I then created a new solution. The first
project was a web service called TestService with the following web

<WebMethod()> _
Public Function TestMethod(ByVal YourName As String) As String
Return "Hello " & YourName
End Function

....and an asp web site with one page with one label with the following

Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
Dim WS As New localhost.TestService

Me.Label1.Text = WS.TestMethod("Bob")
End Sub

After building the solution I load IE and go to
http://localhost/testsite/webform1.aspx I get what I expected, a
message saying "Hello Bob".

But, from inside VS, I set the startup project to the web site and run
it I STILL get a timeout accessing the web service.

Any ideas? I can only think of one final option, and that is to
rebuild the entire machine!

Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to obtaining a connection from the pool. This may have occurred because all pooled connections were in use and max pool size was reached. Guoqi Zheng ASP .Net 4 06-03-2004 06:39 PM
