Cause


This problem occurs because the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) port that you specified for the top-level Web site in Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager contains a value that is different from the value that you specified in the ProjectService.wsdl file.

Resolution


To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
  1. In Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager, find the top-level Web site where you installed Microsoft Business Portal. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
    2. In the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager dialog box, expand Server_name.

      Note In this article, Server_name represents the name of the server where you installed Microsoft Business Portal.
    3. Expand Web Sites.
  2. Right-click the top-level Web site, and then click Properties.
  3. Click the Web Site tab, note the value in the TCP port box, and then click Cancel.
  4. Open the ProjectService.wsdl file in Notepad.

    Note The default location for the ProjectService.wsdl file is Microsoft Business Solutions\Business Portal\Applications\PMA.
  5. Locate the following line near the end of the file:
     <soap:address location="HTTP://Server_name:80/BusinessPortal/Applications/PMA/PCService.asmx" /> 
    Note In this line, "Server_name" represents the name of the server where you installed Microsoft Business Portal.
  6. Replace the port number with the value that you noted in step 3. The line in step 5 shows port 80.
  7. On the File menu, click Save.
