WCF .Net Problem with Windows Embedded Standard


Peter H.

Hello all,

I have a confusing problem with a WCF .Net service on a Windows Embedded
Standard release. The application which runs on WeS does not open a WCF
channel on the server.

I have a .NET application which connects to a .NET WCF service (tcp.net) and
opens a callback channel. This application works fine on a full XP operating
system. Today I checked if the application works on Windows Embedded Standard
release and have seen that the application does not connect to the server.
With telnet I can etablish a connection to the server on the WeS system
sucessfully for testing purposes. Has anybody an idea which component is

On WeS runs .NET 3.5 SP1. The framework except the WCF service works fine.

I have installed the .NET 3.5 SP1 Framework manually. I added in Target
Designer the ".NET Framework 3.5 Setup" component under settings of the
component I let the checkbox "Install .NET Framework 3.5 Install Package
during FBA" unmarked and made a dependency check. The Target designer put
this setup package into c:\windows on the target system. After the FBA
installed the system I installed the .NET 3.5 SP1 Framework afterwards
instead of .NET 3.5.

Thanks for any help in advance,

Peter H.

I could solve the problem. I had a specific .NET problem (not enough client
credentials). This issue had nothing to do with Windows Embedded Standard.

I can confirm that .NET 3.5 SP1 runs on WeS without any problems.

best regards,
